BOAT SEATS And ROV : Frequently Asked Questions
There are so many choices. How do I select the best maritime chair for me?
- The quickest and easiest way is to contact Crown Marine. From a minimal amount of information about the application, we will point you in the right direction with good impartial advice.
Can I buy just a seat?
- Both our seat manufacturers offer seat only options.
What are typical lead times?
- Much depends on what is required. RECARO maintains a healthy number of marine seats in stock for instance. It is often the case that Crown can dispatch seats on a same day or next day basis. More complex operator chairs for instance, will take longer.
Are these maritime chairs expensive?
When compared on price only, there certainly are lower priced seats on the market. However, price cannot be the only consideration. Comfort isn’t just important for spending many hours in the seat, it is about long-term protection of the spine. Likewise, some seats that are offered into the marine market, are designed for lorries or trucks. They may only last 3-6 months in an environment they are not designed to operate in. For vessels that are operating at high speeds, it is important to consider the quality of the suspension unit under the seat. Crown would always encourage vessel owners to consider the level of protection
