CUSTOM BOAT SEATS
Not all boat seats are alike. But if you simply stick with the plain seats you get from the factory, you will probably end up with seats that are very similar to each other. Thankfully, there are custom boat seats available for those that are interested. Custom boat seats are made by fabricators instead of being made on assembly lines. This article will examine how custom boat seats are made, why they are needed, and the pros and cons of having custom boat seats installed in your boat.
HOW THEY’RE MADE
Custom boat seats aren’t made like regular boat seats. That is they aren’t made on an assembly line or manufacturing line. Instead, they are made by individual people, sometimes known as fabricators. If you want a custom boat seat made, you need to tell the fabricator what you want your seat to look like and how you want it to be. Then, you can have the fabricator make the seat for you. Using this method allows you to get the seat just as you want it without having to modify an existing seat.
WHY THEY’RE NEEDED
Custom boat seats are needed for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, they are needed because there is only a limited selection of pre-made boat seats to choose from. Say you’re making a custom boat as well, you probably don’t want your boat to be saddled with ugly seats. Instead, you would choose custom seats because you can decide how they’ll look and feel as well. Often, custom boat seats can be made to feel more comfortable than their pre-made counterparts and therefore will be sit on even more than usual.
PROS AND CONS
- You can order them to any specification and description you want. This allows you to customize your boat even more extensively because the seats are one of the main focal points of the boat.
- You can add your own styling to the seats and add a flavor that you want. It’s obvious that most pre-made seats are bland and fit into a specific mold. However, with custom seats, this mold can be broken and you can have seats that fit your boat’s and your personality.
- They are often quite a bit more expensive than regular boat seats. The reason for this is that they are not created on an assembly line, and are created by fabricators by hand. This takes a lot more energy and resources, in addition to more intensive labor, which brings the overall price up.
- More expensive to replace if it gets damaged, ripped, or experiences sum damage.
Custom boat seats are a great option if you’re creating a custom boat and want to express your style in the type of seats you use in the boat. The type of boat seat you use depends on a variety of factors, and with custom boat seats you can get the exact type of seat you want without all the hassle.
