Scot Seats fulfil order following Euronaval Exhibition

Following an introduction in 2012 UK based specialist seating manufacturers Scot Seats have supplied an order of 6 Shock Mitigation helmsman seats to Nautic Africa. 

The Helmsman seats are designed for installation in Nautic Africa’s new 17m Fast Patrol Vessels (FPVs) which are modern high speed planing craft. These vessels are designed for stability and manoeuvrability at high speed in various sea states providing good dry visibility whilst in heavy seas and at speed.  

The S2H Helmsman seats are the lightest seat in its class while offering 150mm progressively damped shock mitigation system fitted with a fully adjustable FOX Float air shock, the seat comes as standard with 50mm height adjustment with automatic Body Mass Index compensation.  The seat have compact foot print and are manufactured using marine grade anodized aluminium and stainless steel.

All the 17m vessels are built to Bureau Veritas classification rules, with a range of approximately 400 nautical miles. The layout of the vessel is designed for sea and/or river operation that can allow crew to comfortably stay away from the home port for short durations in the execution of their duties.

The 17m FPV vessel is comprised of a wheelhouse, with seating for 5 crew, a technical space for equipment and storage, accommodation for 6 crew, including bunks, galley, head facilities and an engine room.

“Nautic Africa puts Scots Seats to good use in their line of military and enforcement fast patrol vessels. Scots Seats are compact, lightweight and provide exceptional performance to compliment the Nautic line of fine military grade vessels.” Greg Wessels, Planning & Project Manager.

As with all Scot Seats, there are a number of optional extras including tracked mounting systems to allow easy adjustment and removal/refit of the seats, the trim can be customised with different materials and/or custom embroidery.   In addition to the finish of the seat, adjustable headrests and folding adjustable armrests can be fitted.   Lap seat belts or full harnesses can also be fitted.
