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.

  • Hi, I would like to add two of the above captains chairs in the back of my 2015 Misty Harbor 245CU. They would be installed in back of my helm seat. Can you tell me if the two seats would fit? Thanks,

    It all depends on the measurments of the space you have availableon your Pontoon Boat.  These are designed to be placed on a pedestal and should fit almost all Pontoons out there. I fyou call us with your measurements, or look at the dimensions we have listed and compare them to your Potoon. If you have any questions give us a call. 

  • I want to replace my beat up captain chair with this seat. Can this seat be installed on the existing pedestal without modification? I have a 2011 godfrey party craft 2086. Thanks

    Our Reclining Pontoon Captains Seat has a 4 bolt square design. This is a standard pedestal set up for your Pontoon Boat. 

  • I just purchased some of your white and blue seats to redo our pontoon and love how they look in our pontoon. I need to order a captains chair now and don't really care too much for the flip flop style. I really like this captains chair with the arm rests however I don't see an option for white to match the furniture I just installed. I see a picture of the white on your website but the drop down only lists an option for Gray and Ivory.

    Thank you. We have just listed the reclining pontoon chair as an option again. The white is now avaliable.

    No. The Reclining Pontoon Captains Seat only comes in Gray and Ivory.

    Depending on the Pedestal that you place the Reclining Captains Chair, then yes it will. All of our Pontoon Seat Pedestals swivel. 

  • The seat width is 19”., but what is the width across with the arm rests down?

    The Arm Rests of the Reclining Pontoon Captains Seat measure from outside to outside at 27".

  • I have a swivel-eze adjustable pedestal. Will this work on your captains chair

    as long as the measurements for the mounting plate going on to the bottom of the seat are 5" x 12" then you should be just fine. 

  • Do the arms of the captain's chair raise independantly of each other?

    Yes. These arm rests can be lifted but they do stay at the angle of the Chair and move with it. 

Reviews for Reclining Captain Boat Seats
4.5 out of 5, based on 2 reviews
Ken Bryant from Washington on Aug 30, 2013
I have had this seat for most of our cruising season and I like it a lot compared to my old helm seat. After about 30-40hrs in the seat while running +any time spent while at anchor/the dock I do have two constructive criticism. 1) the springs in seat will occasionally pop and snap as you re-position yourself. A few (more) nylon bits in the seat frame to let the springs flex in silence would be good 2) the armrest foam is too soft &/or thick. This might end up as being the part that starts to show wear/break down first.
Rick Brown from St. Louis on Jun 28, 2012
Extremely comfortable and well made. Can be used as a Helm, second seat up front or even a Fishing seat. The reclining feature really does the trick. I have one at the helm and another at the bow. Great seat for the money..
