I am wanting to super upgrade my existing seats on my Blazer 17' aluminum boat. Seeing that I spend 99% of the time seated [stick steer boat] I want to splurge on some new seats. Prepared to spend up to 250.00 each. What do you recommend? Thanks.

I have been looking at seats also.

Have you looked at these?

I have been thinking about going down this road. The new high end fishing boats all have Centric style seats.

Thanks for the replies. FishinLite, I like those seats you suggested. They look good.

I put a set of these in my boat this spring. Love them so far, a lot more comfortable than the Wise brand seats I had in it. The foam is dense enough that it doesn't "bottom out" after you've been sitting on them for a couple of hours.

I replaced the helm seats in my larger tin with the Tempress High Back Navi-Style seats. They are great seats, however, IMO the front of them will need to be shimmed up to make them lean back slightly to make them comfortable. I have not done that with mine yet and they are too upright for my liking. They do make a low back version though which may allow you to get more comfortable in them. Despite all of that they are very high quality. I'm not sure where to get the low back ones but the high backs I got from Academy for $110 each.

Someone on crappie.com said to look into millennium marine seats. This company makes treestands. They look nice and are getting excellent reviews. Concerned that the straps that run down each side would be a negative. Anybody using these seats?

Tempress Navi High Back is all I use I stay on the water long hours make sure u turn the mounting plate in the right direction on the seat bottom or they will feel leaning forward. Installed correctly awwww cant get any better. They are designed to fit tight against your back to stop fatigue. and it works

I bought a pair of Lowe seats from a forum member a few years ago for my Alumacraft Model F ( see link at bottom of post). They are ideal for me: plush but not puffy, good support and ergonomics, and solid.

Don't know what they retail for.

Best wishes.

Are you sure you are not using an angled seat base and have it turned backwards? I have the angled bases for mine. With my Wise brand seats I had to turn the angle backwards or the seats felt like recliners, but with the Tempress seats I turn the angle to the front to tilt the seat back a few degrees and they sit great that way. If the base has the arrow stamped in it, I think that is the angled model.

I don't have mine mounted to a seat base. I replaced my old bench seat with these and they are mounted directly to a carpeted piece of plywood. The plywood sits level as it covers the storage area under the seats. I'm sure that when they are mounted on the pedestal base they are good though. I plan on removing one to test out as I'd like to upgrade the seats on my jon boat and would like these but maybe in the low back version.

I just installed the Millennium B-100 seats in my Tracker Topper 15'. They are very deep which is nice. I don't really notice the straps so not a big deal to me. They weigh next to nothing which is nice when weight is a concern. Biggest advantage to me is the fact they are made out of a perforated mesh material. When you live somewhere hot, those vinyl seats make my rear end all sweaty.

To the top. I love the idea of these from a weight standpoint, cooler than vinyl, aerodynamic?. Are you happy with them? Anyone else have opinions on them. They have great reviews on Amazon.

My ordered boat won't be ready until April but I already bought a pair of their saltwater version of these seats. Not sure about the freshwater version but the strap on the sides of the seat are adjustable on the saltwater version to recline the seat back if you want. Also, from reports on Facebook about them the straps don't seem to bother anyone and act as arm rests. We'll have to see when I get the boat but I think I'm going to like them. They seem to get really good reviews.
