Our unique and patented Ball & Socket top fittings are manufactured from only the highest-quality Type-316L stainless steel.

Boat in style and comfort with the Capri Helm Chair "Deluxe" – proudly made in the USA.

Designed with comfort and versatility in mind, the Capri Helm Chair “Deluxe” features adjustable armrests and bolster, allowing the chair to act as a seat or a leaning post – a necessity for the boaters’ lifestyle. Only using Type-316L marine-grade stainless-steel hardware, this chair is engineered with a unique shield that secures the bolster in place, which prevents it from flipping down – ultimately eliminating dangerous pinch points. The Capri Helm Chair “Deluxe” is made in the USA and comes with a 3-year limited warranty.
