Jonathan Young - Managing Director, Scot Seat KPM Marine

"Scot Seats are dedicated to improving the comfort and safety for all transportation seating. We believe that carefully selected suspension seating is a key part of shock mitigation in waves."

"On larger vessels occupants tend to use the fully seated, feet off the deck shock mitigation seat. These seats are available with a safety harness or lap safety belt to secure the occupant in the seated position at all times."

"Jockey seats are by far the most popular for small to medium high speed craft. In this seat position the occupant is part standing with both feet on the deck and knees slightly bent. Similar to a saddle on a horse, straddling the seat helps to maintain the correct posture to lessen the chance of injury in waves."

"Most importantly, our seats can be adjusted according to the height and weight of the people using them."



"Our new Height Adjustment Mechanism is designed with a one touch button that enables users to adjust the seat height as they sit down or stand up. Height adjustment is ideal for vessels that regularly have a variety of crew and passengers."

We are proud to work with various organisations and regulatory bodies to ensure that our seats meet the requirements and standards expected for shock mitigation seating. Our suspension systems are continuously undergoing testing and as a result we have amassed a vast amount of data in all sea states that is collated to improve designs and manufacturing techniques."
