The SternPerch sailboat seat is custom designed for each model boat. It simply mounts
to the stern rail without altering the rail itself, and without the use of tools. Drink
holders (holds insulated) are standard.
The SternPerch is constructed of only the finest marine grade polymers on the market today and the unit is completely UV inhibited and weather resistant.
"Why did I wait so long to order the SternPerch seats? We received our seats, as planned and I installed them on my 1990 Catalina 28 Saturday morning, it took about 10 minutes. My wife and granddaughter enjoyed the sail that morning over to the Air Show. At the marina, owners of newer Catalina's with stern seats thought they look great."
Even better than expected Deborah Hughes of Rochester, NY | September 2019
Bought the Stern Perches for our 1985 Ericson 32-3. Took just a few minutes to cut the support legs to size, and no interference with lazarette doors! Love the new view.
Great Buy GENE BARNES of VA | Catalina | October 2018
Ok, everything looks great new. I put the perch seats/ rail covers and peek-a-boo blinds in 2 years ago. Wish I had the perch seats years ago. With 5/6 adults under sail, these seat are the favorite, and expand the cockpit room. Covers easily slip off for cleaning.
The blinds work well and make the saloon look larger. Really cleaned up an older boat. Removed the fire hazard over the stove and keeps the sun out of the boat. You may want to consider the dark blind for sleeping areas.
Best seats on the boat Glen Brumbaugh of Annapolis, MD | Beneteau First 38s5 (1990) | May 2017
I put these seats on the boat between 15-20 years ago, so this is a quite belated review. After all of these years, the seats still look great. They are my favorite seat in the cockpit. Up a little higher for a better view. On many a long reach, I have sat in the seat for hours while steering with my foot. Probably one of the best "bang for the buck" improvements I have made.
What has made them really comfortable are the rail cushions. These are what you back will lean against, so they both look great and are highly functional.
The installation was easy and the seats were a perfect fit, including around an existing support stanchion. I had to modify one of the seats later when I installed a hoist mounted to the port rail, and that modification came out looking fine, so the seats can be customized after installation (if required).
Stern Rail Seats Jim McGrath of Staten Island, NY | August 2014
I recently purchased stern rail seats for my 1981 Catalina 27. Zarcor was very helpful and shipped them fast. They fit perfectly. I am sorry that I did not order them years ago. I have recommended them to all my sailing buddies.
Stern rail seats a perfect fit Dale Fletcher of Titusville, FL | July 2014
Love the stern rail seats we purchased for our Ericson 35 Mk III. I actually installed them while underway only having to cut the height of the support leg. The seats immediately became everyone's favorite place to sit.Thank you Zarcor!
They are amazing! David Bickert of Rye, NH | July, 2013
They look fantastic, have quickly become the most popular seating area on my boat, the quality is great, the fit was perfect and it took all of about 10 minutes to install them. Another BIG advantage is that my cockpit is a bit on the small size and becomes somewhat crowded with 4 people. This extra seating capacity has changed everything! I also suspect when selling my boat, being able to advertise stern perch seats will certainly be a plus to the buyers. Thank you all for a terrific product!
Zarcor & Sternperch Seat Pads - Great James Worsham of Irving, TX | January, 2011
I have a preowned boat that already had the sternperches added but the pads had worn out from use/sun. Contacted Zarcor about replacement pads and they knew that my boat had about 7 different potential sternperch shapes that could have been used. No problem, they simply mailed me paper patterns of all the various shapes they could be and I matched one up to the what was on my boat. With that info they were ready for production. Zarcor does use an outside vendor for the pads and so were at the mercy of that vendors schedule. They knew this too though and so forewarned me of a potential wait which was acceptable to me. Got em now and they fit perfect, look great, and are much easier on my boney tail than without the pads. Have plans to add the rail cushions too but again they knew color matching would be a concern and so I will be coordinating that with them to get it right. They always seem to be one step ahead of what can go wrong and thereby circumvent the problems.
Stern Perches Jim Ford of Frisco, TX | January, 2011
These seats were one of the first things I added to my Hunter 33' when I purchased it over 14 years ago! As I think about it, I have enjoyed these seats amensly! They have given me a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction, probably more than any other one single thing I have added to my boat. They are an amazing product, so durable, they literally look as good as the day I put them on. Exceptional product, great people, and a company that stands behind what they sell..... What more can you ask for?
It's hard to say just which update I liked best! Dave Barker of Wichita, KS | January, 2011
I can't say enough good things about the products from Zarcor! I have both the Stern Perch seats and the Companionway doors. I own a 1978 Catalina 30 and have completely renovated her with a full leather interior, updated counter tops, refinished teak, and a complete canvas package including a dodger. The boat looks awesome and the added security I get from the companionway doors makes me feel more secure when I leave the boat after a weekend sail. The doors also seem to keep out more hot air than the original boards so my air conditioning does a better job too! I also love to sit on the Stern Perch seats and steer the boat with my toes! People get a laugh when they see me kicked back but, it just feels right. Zarcor's products are of the highest quality and the company offers excellent customer service!
very satisfied Thurston Cooper of manchester, NJ | January, 2011
best item i every bought for my 28 ft o'day.
Boat Seat Thomas Cleary of Chicago, IL | January, 2011
These have worked out really well for us. Not only is it a great way to enjoy the ride but steer the boat as well so you don't have to stand the whole time. It also spaced out the seating so everyone isn't so cramped. The seat pads could have held up better but we just removed them when they got too ragged and they worked just the same. They don't provide much if any cushion anyway.
Princess Seats Thomas Mullen of Mesa, AZ | January, 2011
The first time we went out with the new Sternperch Seats the wife said she felt like a princess, sitting high on her throne surveying her kingdom. I won't say I felt like a princess but it sure felt good to see over the dodger without straining. Installation was a snap and all the parts fit perfectly. I like how easy it is to fold them up when returning and regaining all the original seating. Zarcor makes a good product and the shipping was prompt.
Seats are great Jeffrey Schwartz of Miami, FL | January, 2011
We just love to have the flexibilty to use the SternPerch seats nice design, easy install and great to use.
SternPerch Lance JONES of Buford, GA | January, 2011
Awesome product! Highly recommend it for your boat! It is the best seat on our boat.
Best Matthew Kronyak of Carlstadt, NJ | January, 2011
Best thing I got when I bought the boat, everyone loves to sit up there.
Stern Perch Seats Ralph Masters of San Diego, CA | January, 2011
I can't imagine sailing ever again without these. Gets you up and out where you can see ahead of you, provides a safe place from which to pilot the boat, and adds room to you cock pit for intertaining.
Brilliant Richard Jerrom of UK, YT | December, 2010
I purchased a pair of Sternperches and had them delivered direct to Grenada for use on my Benneteau 47.7
Fantastic addition to the yacht
Great seats Steve Miner of AR | November, 2010
I'm lookiing forward to receiving the doors for my O'day 28, but I wanted you to know that the seats you made for my Cape Dory 30 look great and work even better!
Pearson 26 seats Douglas Bell of CT | November, 2010
We installed the seats and rail kit on our P26. They are great. Read on your website that you would want pictures. Let me know an e-mail address and I'll send them along.
Terrific Frank DeWolf of Erie, PA | October, 2010
I have previously ordered the stern perch seats from Zarcor and the products and services are terrific.
Changed the view from the cockpit Steve Minner of AR | October, 2010
I received the stern seats for my Cape Dory 30 and had them install in a couple of hours. They look great and are so incredibly functional! Really changes the view from the cockpit.
SternPerch easy install. Enjoyed first sail. Elizabeth Kinsella of CT | October, 2010
I just wanted you to know I installed the seats very easily and enjoyed our first sail with them today! Your customer service has been wonderful and I would recommend Zarcor very highly!
