Different Styles of Boat Seats

There are several different styles of boat seats available here at Boat Outfitters. Consider the following styles and descriptions when deciding which boat furniture is best for you.

Pontoon Boat Seats

We have many high-quality seats that are ideal if you have a pontoon boat. Made from mildew and UV-resistant marine grade vinyl, these have very comfortable plush cushions with high compression foam padding. The cushions have hinges that allow them to open up and provide generous storage space underneath. Pontoon boat seats also offer opportunities to add a wide variety of pontoon boat-specific storage and accessories.

Bucket Seats

Bucket seats, also known as bolster seats, are as attractive as they are practical. They feature the same level of premium-grade, UV, and mildew resistant vinyl with high compression foam padding in the cushion.  A unique benefit of these seats is the lower section flips up so it can be used to lean against, perfect for driving while standing. Thanks to their design they work well as captain’s or standard passenger’s seats.

Back to Back Seats

As the name suggests back to back seats are basically two chairs that are connected via the back and built on the same base unit. With most, they slide out and can be laid flat and also have storage in the hollow compartment underneath.

Casting Seat

Casting seats are designed, as you may imagine, for fishing boats and offer greater stability when fishing while standing, particularly if you are on rough and choppy waters.

High Back Boat Seats

High back boat chairs provide optimum backrest featuring a high impact plastic and durable seat frame with luxury compression foam padded cushion. The backrest can be folded forward, making them a good option on smaller boats where space is limited like jon boats.

Boat Seat Fabrics and Materials

Another important consideration aside from the type of available boat seats is the type of fabrics and materials used to manufacture them. 

At Boat Outfitters, we only sell boat seats made with the highest quality materials and fabrics. When you purchase our products, you can expect:


High-quality and durable plastic

Compression foam padding

Marine-grade vinyl
