Taco Marine Helm Benches

Mar 16, 2021

TACO Marine has expanded its range of helm seating options available to boat builders with the addition of two new ergonomically designed helm benches.

Both new benches are available to builders with custom vinyl options.

New Boca Sport Bench (HA4-53)
The 53” Boca Sport Bench provides superior support and relaxation during longer, faster boat rides for the captain and passengers. The innovative design features a dual rollback seat bolster, available in a 60/40 split, and three adjustable armrests with brackets on both port and starboard and a center hinge that folds the middle armrest flush into the seat back.

The center armrest also includes two stainless steel Type-316L cup holders. Diamond pleated upholstery and precision-cut foam padding provide boaters with not only a sophisticated-looking helm bench, but with the ergonomic support needed for long days on the water.

Taco Marine Helm BenchesNew Open Water Sport Bench (HA13)
The new 53″ Open Water Sport Bench features a dual rollback seat bolster, available in a 50/50 split, three adjustable armrests with brackets on both port and starboard and a center hinge that folds the middle armrest flush into the seat back. The center armrest includes two stainless steel Type-316L cup holders.

The sporty Open Water features dual back cutouts on both sides – designed to keep the captain and passengers cool at the helm. The finer touches of the Open Water Sport Bench include diamond-pleated upholstery, welting along the edges and borders and precision-cut foam padding for ergonomic support.
