Our History

PontoonStuff® was founded on the idea that rebuilding a pontoon boat should be affordable and that you shouldn't need a payment to get that new boat feeling. With factory-grade pontoon furniture, flooring, and parts, we make it affordable to have a great-looking pontoon boat again!

Here are some quick facts about us:

  • We've been in business since 2005, and have helped over 200,000 customers fix up their pontoons. We sell to an average of 35,000 new customers per year.
  • We sell more replacement pontoon boat seats than all other marine retailers combined, and focus on offering everything you need for your pontoon restoration.
  • Designing, building, and selling our pontoon boat seats directly gives us a big advantage: We can invest more in quality because we control the entire process. 
  • All products are stocked and shipped from our facilities in Elkhart, IN and Dalton, GA.

Before building our own DeckMate brand of pontoon furniture in 2012, we sold nearly every brand of replacement pontoon seating, so we understand what makes a high-quality seat. Because of our experience with other seat brands, we knew where to focus our efforts in order to offer superior quality pontoon boat seats.

        Unfortunately, no. These Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seats are sold as a set of cushions and plastic bases. 

      • Can you make it into a livewell?

        It would require some work to turn the Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seat into a full functioning Live Well. But since it has s drain plug, it cane be done.

      • can i get this seat in white and red are just white ?

        Unfortunately, we only have the colors available listed on the website for the Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seats. Custom colors are not available. 

      • can you buy just the seat backs? If so how much

        Unfortunately, our Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seats are sold as a set and cannot be purchased separately.

      • I have a skeeter ZX20 Bay boat and trying to find a cooler seat for it. I have the frame and upper back test but missing the cooler seat lower half. Can you direct me as to what I need for my boat?

        Unfortunately, we are not familiar with other companies specifics and products. I do apologize for the inconvenience. Since our products are universal, you may want to check the measurements and compare ours to see if they will fit. This Flip FLop Pontoon Boat Seat does come with a drain plug and can hold water if you choose. 

      • What will I need to install to boat flooring?

        For the Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seats, you will need to use the wood screws that we include with the Plastic Bases. This will keep the base secure to the Pontoon Deck. 

      • Do your seats come with the necessary hardware to mount them to the deck ?

        Yes. We include all hardware for our Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seats. They should be included in the boxes that you receive. 

      • I’d like 2 of these units but in plain white only. Possible?

        Unfortunately, we do not make custom colors of our Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seats. The colors we have listed on the website are the only ones that we offer. 

      • Does the storage area keep items dry?

        No. None of our Pontoon Boat Seat Base are designed as dry storage. 

      • Can you turn bottom of sit into a livewell?

        Yes it is possible to turn the bottom of this seat into a livewall. It will hold water and already has a drain plug. You will simply need to run your the proper pumps, wiring and tubing, We hope to offer all the parts for a livewell very soon.

      • Will this seat work as a replacement for a center console cooler seat

        Yes this seat will work great as a replacement for a center console cooler seat. Please keep in mind this seat is not insulated but will work very similar to a cooler. 

      • Do you have a back seat that will fit into 92" space?

        To maxamize the space with seating I would recommened two 38" pontoon benches and a right and left pontoon arm rest. This will equal 90" of space but will offer you the most amount of seating for your space. 

      • Is the bottom hinged or will it come off going down the highway?

        The seat cushion of this flip flop pontoon seat is hinged to the base. 

      • I'm looking to replace a set of seats on my Bayliner Cuddy. I'm wondering if your flip seat would work well as a live well?

        Customer have converted our pontoon flip flop seat into a livewell. It will take some modifcation but the drain plug makes this possible. 

      • i.e. Backrest. Is the sewn in design on both sides of the backrest, or is one side one color. Thank you

        The back rest on this replacement seat has the color on both sides of the backrest. 

      • I have a 1990 Northwoods pontoon with a 2003 Honda motor. how does the weight of your seats compare with what I have. Hoping it doesn't add weight if I have the same setting

        I do not know the exact weight of your current pontoon seats. I'm rather postive that your exsisting pontoon seats are made of wood. All of our replacement pontoon seats are made of plastic, which is typically much lighter. They do not contain any wood. The Pontoon Flip Flop seat you are looing at only weight 45 lbs. 

      • I have your flip flop seat. The backrest zipper has broken. Will you sell just the backrest? It is the turquoise blue color. I can provide my credit card number via phone. Thank you

        We will replace that seat cushion under warranty, no need to pay anything. If you could please email us at with an image and ship to address we'll get you a replacement seat asap. Please provide the original order name or number if possible so we can note the account. The image will help us to determine if we should make production improvements. Thank you for your business!

      • I need to know the width of the foot print please. I read the cushion is 31 wide but it seems like there is a couple inches of box on the sides?

        The foot print is 32.5" wide by 16.5" deep. I apologize, the image showing the dimensions is not displaying properly but we will fix asap.

      • Which way does this seat open........forwards or backwards.

        It is designed so you can choose when you install it. There are hinge postions  on both side of the  base. 

      • is that a cooler under the seat? how good does it hold ice.

        It's not insulated so it's not a real cooler seat but can be used for the day. We are working on an insulated insert that will help keep ice but now it's just basically a large open tub with drain.

      • The seat does not work in our boat will I be able to get my money back.

        Yes absolutely. Please call us or send us an email with your order number and we will issue you a full refund and return the seat, if possible, at no charge to you.   Please let any of my customer service team know that James Myers approved this refund.

      • What is the best way to mount your flip flop seat ?

        Our flip flop seats have mounting holes on the exterior part of the base under the aluminum poles that support the back rest. You can simply screw or bolt the base down to your pontoon boat's deck this way.

      • I have one of your flip flop seat and the back rest go ripped can i buy a replacement back

        We will send you a replacement seat backrest at no charge. Please contact us at and include an image. In your email state that James Myers said you would replace at no charge. We will get you a new one shipped Tuesday. Thank you for you business! 

      • Can this seat be used as a live well ?

        No. This Flip Flop Cushion does not work as a live well. It can however work as a cooler of sorts. It does have drain plug located at the bottom of the plastic base. 

      • I just asked a question about installing the back rest on a flip flop seat. My question disappeared and I do not see a response. Are you there?

        When installing the Flip Flop Back Rest you will need to make sure you have the 2 aluminum posts secured. This will determine that the Flip Flop is installed correctly. 

      • I have a new flip flop seat and what should be a relatively simple assembly of connecting the back to the aluminum posts is baffling. The instructions provide for connecting the rods to the seat with a supplied 1-1/2 inch bolt and washer. However, the hole in the seat back (only hole I can find) has a bolt already in it. I have removed the bolt and it is too short to use for the post and the provided bolt is too small for the designated hole? What am I missing here?

        You will need to take that bolt out of the Back Rest and apply that bolt back through the bar to secure the aluminum bar to the back rest

      • Can the flip flop pontoon seat be installed free standing & not attached to the fencing? (I have a center console pontoon and am considering this as the captains chair so when not driving I can flip seat back and face main seating area).

        That is correct the flip flop pontoon seat can be installed free standing

      • Can the center divider be removed

        Yes the center divider of this pontoon boat seat is removeable.


        This pontoon boat flip flop seat opens in the middle.

      • How do you mount the flip flop seat to the deck. The instructions show two holes at the base just under where the swing bars mount. The actual seat does not look the same as the instructions.

        The updated Pontoon Flip Flop Seat will need to be bolted / screwed into your floor through the inside of the base.  If you open the seating compartment you'll see 4 small indents towards each of the corners - this is where you will drill through and put your bolts or screws. We recommend putting some sealant around some washers if you intend to put any liquid in it.

      • Can this be used as a captains seat, freestanding?

        Our Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seat can be used as a captains seat and is the only seat that can be freestanding

      • Have you changed the "Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seats"? This is a different picture.

        Yes we have changed the design of the Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seat.

      • What is the assembled weight of the flip-flop seat?

        The assembled weight of the pontoon flip flop seat is 26 pounds.

      • Is the flip top seat also a cooler

        The Flip Flop Pontoon Seat does have a drain and is able to hold beverages with ice. It is not insulated like a cooler though.

      • If this does have to anchor to railing do you have similar that does not require anchoring to railing.

        This pontoon seat does not need to be mounted to the railing on your pontoon boat. It can be free standing.

      • Does this seat have to anchor to railing.

        The Flip Flop Pontoon boat seat does not need to be anchored to a railing for support. It only needs to be bolted to the floor to provide adequate stability.

      • Do you sell the aluminum swing arms ? I have one broken

        Please send us an e-mail at and we will be happy to send them to you.


        You will see four dimples on the inside of the base. Each is by a different corner. Drill through each of those and then bolt to the floor. Hope that helps!

      • What is the weight limit leaning back on the flip flop seat? Just curious if its going to rip out of the floor with 280lb man leaning back on this.

        The seat should have no issues as long as it is properly bolted to the floor of the pontoon.

      • You have a note that states:Note: pontoon boat seats must be supported against railing. Does this also apply to the Flip Flop Pontoon Boat Seats? I am looking to replace the two independent seats behind the center console of my 20ft sport fishing boat with a cooler seat.

        No - Flip Flop Pontoon Seats are the exception for that rule. They only need to be bolted to the floor.

      • Can I just buy the seat and back rest or does it have to come with the base? My base is still in great condition and the seat is in bad condition.

        We only sell these items as a set. The cushions are made with our bases in mind and will not work with other bases. 

      • Is there storage under the seat, if so can it be used as an ice chest. Or if not do you have one.

        Yes, and yes. This also comes with a drain plug toward the bottom of the base. It is not insulated though.

      • Do you sell replacement cushions only for flip flop seats?

        Unfortunately, we do not offer cushions separate from the plastic bases. 

      • this says the seat must be supported against a railing. Clarification: I'm assuming that directive does not apply to a Flip back seat. Correct?

        No it does it. You only need to mount these to the deck of the Pontoon Boat. 

      • Does this seat come 22” wide

        No we only offer the seats as we have them listed. I do apologize for the inconvenience. 

      • Does the Ivory & Teal seat come in a 34 in. wide or 36 in. wide? Also, will this seat work by fixing it to the pontoon floor, or does it have to be installed up against the railing? Trying to replace seats in a 1997 pontoon that are floor mounted, not rail mounted.

        Unfortunately, it does not come on in those sizes. It will have to be supported by the railing for it to function properly. But you will be mounting these seats on to the floor.
