Ullman suspension seats

Has anyone had any experience of using these compared with conventional jockey seats? I notice that they don't usually have any side support.

I have 650 hours with them. Perfect to sit and also great support when standing. When driving my old rib I had constant pain in neck/back. This is eliminated. Now building a new boat, and will install Ulmanns ( or similar )again.

Here's a thought for you.. If you install suspension seats for you and your crew but not your pax.. what happens if one of them damages his back during a ride? His switched on Solicitor says "you must have been aware of the risks of spinal damage because you fitted the seats for your use yet not for the pax.. you knew the risks and didn't take adequate measures for their safety"... defend that in Court...

I'm in the boat all the time, my clients is just for a short visit. They also sign on a form that they are aware of the hazards and shud be standing/sitting with the weight on their legs. Anyway, I have hear EU will decide that from 08 ( ? ) that all seats onboard has to be suspension seats.

We also use them and have had the same experience. They are expensive but well worth the money. We like them so much we have become a dealer here in the US and have sold a few. You can contact Ullman directly for pricing in the UK @ www.ullmandynamics.com/contact.asp

The prise is approxemately 300 Euro. Have used 6 seats in 3 boats for several hundred hours the last years, very good to sit on, but do not like to stand as it gets wither at the rear, forcing the legs out.
The fabric does not last long. Recomended!

300 is not correct but I don't think 3000 is either. I will contact Ullman and post a current UK retail price tomorrow.

Ullman seats

Thanks a lot for all the info. Despite the good ride of the Scorpion there are still times when I think they would be more comfortable. Not cheap and I assume that they can handle the salt water environment. Gavin

I was also looking to get two. Apparently Ribraft are the UK agents.

The two main Jockey Seats are the Concole (handle at top) and the Biscaya (handles at the side). I rang yesterday and £2000 is the price, with an 8 week league time.

They do appear good, but that is just too much.

I too was confused. You can purchase them directly from Ullman and they have them ready to ship. It took 3 days to get them to California. The current price is about 3000 Euros or 2000 pounds and that is directly from Dr. Ullman.
