That is what I was thinking.

We had the factory installed optional stern rails seats on our 2001 HUNTER h260 and they were great!
My Wife really misses them on our current boat (no rails).

I replied to this over on Anything Sailing, same answer, wouldn't put them on my boat. The stern corners are my favorite place to sit while sailing so I can see the telltales on the headsail, these seats would eliminate that space. Of course, I don't have a modern big assed boat, it's an offshore boat with a fairly small cockpit. I would also worry about someone sitting up that high while heeled over, or in rough conditions. They would be great at anchor though.

Opinion? I think she's cute.

Do I have one? No, the owner wouldn't allow it.

The manufacturer of the Sterperch is Zarcos (Zarcor: Boat seats, boat curtains, iBoatingCalendar. sternperch, peek a booo shutters, Hot Blade, Drink holders, Electronic Holders, Window shades, curtains, shutters, shades, portlight shades). We have them. We do not have the lower rail in our stern pulpit (pushpit?), so we had to use the kit that basically installs a straight cross piece to which the seat is mounted. There is a pole that goes down to the cockpit seat or deck, depending on the setup on your boat. My only criticism is that if one sits too far forward, the seat can pivot. I've thought about securing the vertical pole to the boat to prevent that.

We love 'em. They're not a problem when heeled. I can perch, steer (it's a reach, but doable) and peer over the bimini at the windex and tell tales. Works for me.

I can sit in the seat and steer my boat with my foot and a line attached to the tiller (Light winds when things happen slowly or under power ) On my boat it actually makes more room in the cockpit for us.

Smile stern rail seats

Our Catalina 36 came with them. They are a must have on any boat. Great place to sit and if you have any guests that are prone to getting sea sick, these seat prevent it. It keep them up high with lots of wind on the face and view on the horizon.
