Editor's Notes

April 04, 2019:

We've picked out helm chairs that offer style and performance as well as comfort. The most common features among these products are mold- and UV-resistance, and waterproofing. Some are designed for casual boaters who are simply looking for a slightly more comfortable option than the built-in bench in their vessel, while others boast headrests, armrests, and plenty of padding to ensure the captain won't have to cope with aches and pains after a day out on the water. With regard to the installation process, several of these selections come with a swivel mount, an attached mounting plate, and/or hardware to streamline the setup process. Finally, price was a consideration as well. The Leader Accessories Shell was chosen as a practical, budget-friendly solution, while the Wise Razor Style should satisfy lovers of luxury.
