Boat seats are often very expensive and it is not so easy to find cheap boat seats. I had the same problem when I was rebuilding my boat and so I decided to build my own cheap boat seats that will fit my needs and will be cheap. I managed to build boat seats really cheap, for about 50 € a piece.
First I bought some plywood, about 1 cm thick and cut it to a shape that had no sharp edges. I made two pieces out of that plywood for each of my cheap boat seats. One for the seating part and and one for the backrest part of my cheap boat seats. The dimensons for both pieces were 40×40 cm for the seating part and 40×20 cm for the baskrest part. I then screwed both of the parts on an aluminum rod that I bent by hand. Now I had the frames for my boat seats ready. This is the type of frame that is very strong and you can easily use it for building your cheap boat seats.

I am a young student of electrical engineering, living, working and studying in Slovenija, Europe. It’s a small country at the foothills of the Alps, near Italy and Austria. We own about 50 km of sea coast and a floatable river or two Although we only have about 2000000 citizens, we have quite developed boating scene. A lot of people own their own boats and also a lot are building their own.
As for me, I have been a boat fan since I was a child, but my familiy never could afford owning a boat. So when I started to make my own money I decided to make my dream come trough and bought myself an inflatable boat with fiberglass V (Vee) bottom. It was only 3,5 meters long and could carry a motor of 25 horse power max. I was on a tight budget so I could not afford expensive inflatable boat consoles, seats and other expensive gear, so I decided to build my own boat accessories. On this blog I will try to give some advice on diy boat building an some great tutorials for you to make some nice improvements for your boat. Read more…
