The 10 Best Boat Seats

This review has been updated 9 times since it was first published in July of 2018. The right seating can make or break a day on the water, especially if you’re spending hours fishing or going on a long trip. Whether you are looking to replace the old chairs on your trusty boat or need to upgrade the comfort level on a new vessel, our selection of seats provides you with plenty of comfortable, functional options. Many fold down to save space and provide storage, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the review.
