RECARO Northsea Skipper Seat

The most comfortable skipper chair in the fleet.

it really is that good

For any skipper at the helm for extended periods of time, the Northsea provides comfort, support and a long service life

“There’s nothing quite like the Northsea” 

We hear this so often from skippers and the good news is, we have adapter plates to suit most existing pedestals on the market so it’s really easy to change to a Northsea.


Undoubtedly, the most popular seat amongst the RECARO range.  Unmistakeably RECARO in its design and styling, the Northsea is a beautifully designed stylish and hard-wearing. The Northsea skipper seat is a seat that you sit in rather than on and holds the skipper in the seat in the roughest of weather. The Recaro Northsea has an integrated headrest, with or without seatbelt holes for a 4-point belt. The backrest is styled to provide maximum comfort and protection in any conditions, over an extended period. The RECARO Northsea is an extremely aesthetically pleasing seat that is uniquely available in loose, wrinkled leather or smooth leather. The angle of the backrest can be adjusted manually from either side of the seat, to suit the user’s preference. The Northsea in leather is also supplied as standard with pneumatic lumbar support. The seat cushion, as with all RECARO seats, provides comfort and support over long shifts. In keeping with its sporty design, the Northsea has raised thigh support bolster cushions for added comfort and stability. As standard, the Northsea comes with thigh extension support.

RECARO armrests are supplied as standard. Armrests have a tip-up feature through 90 degrees to allow easier access in to and out of the chair. The angle of the armrest can be adjusted to suit the individual user.
