Scot Seat KPM Marine supply to growing company

Scot Seats KPM Marine met a new customer whilst they were exhibiting at METS in Amsterdam in 2011. At that time, Arctic Airboats were builders of small airboats but had started to build larger vessels. The boats are constructed out of a High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and are Rigid Buoyancy Boats (RBB’s). At the time Scot Seats provided a seat for a 4.5m demo boat.   As Arctic Airboats has grown and expanded their range of products they have returned to Scot Seats for more shock mitigation seating options.  This year has seen them order over 20 S2J Jockey seats for their RBB’s which are mostly used as Search & Rescue fast boats, Patrol boats and even as luxury tenders. Most recently Scot Seats has supplied 3 of their S2H shock mitigation helmsman seats for a new cabin RBB being built by Arctic Airboats.

The boats have been supplied, amongst other customers, to the Swedish Sea Rescue Society, German Sea Rescue DGzRS, the Hellenic Rescue Team (Greece) and the Estonian Voluntary Sea Rescue.

Arctic Airboats explained, “Our clients have given us a lot of positive feedback; the Jockey Seats are comfortable even when on long missions. We drove 250 Nm from Athens to Kos on a boat and sitting on the Scot Seat Jockey Seat for 8 hours was not a problem.”

Scot Seats is looking forward to a METS 2016 and to continuing to work with Arctic Airboats as they continue to grow.
