Stern rail seats on Catalina 30 1980


"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!
