Avenir Sport has all the break-through features of the Avenir (SAS suspension system and flip-up bolster) but with a more compact, low profile, sporty styling. It's ideal for smaller cockpits or any application where boater comfort and compact size are important.
Stylish curve supports the arms in a natural, comfortable position.
Bolster down creates rounded edge at the front of the seat and exceeds ABYC H-31 Type A Driver requirements. Up position holds the bolster at a 102 degree angle with 7" height for improved maneuvering vision when boat is off plane. Avenir is the world's first bolster seat with the award winning, patented SAS shock absorbing system.
Dimensions 22-1/4"W x 24"D x 21-7/8"H
The Seating Comfort Boaters Have Been Demanding
Many developers have tried to reduce the shock that hull pounding transfers to a seated boater. With its unique resources, Attwood is the first to bring such an effective system to the recreational market at an affordable price.
SAS means "Shock Absorption System", and it is available exclusively in Avenir, Avenir Sport, and Centric SAS seats from Attwood.
The SAS Quad-Spring suspension system is completely integrated within the seat pan - not bolted on, as are some systems. Four marine-grade coil springs stretch a stainless steel grid that supports and shapes the molded foam cushion in the seat pan. This suspension provides Dynamic Comfort while underway and Static Comfort when relaxing.Spring Grid
Provides comfort and 3" travel for shock absorption. Prevents rider from "bottoming out."
Dynamic Comfort with SAS
The SAS seat pan suspends molded urethane foam over a spring-isolated grid. While underway, wave impact is absorbed by SAS suspension, not the boater.
Springs absorb energy and reduce shock.
Isolated suspension does not allow boater to bottom out against hard surface.
Impact is absorbed by the suspension system - not the boater.
Even while idle and sitting still, the SAS suspension adds long-term comfort. Molded foam for SAS seats is thicker at the sides to give larger boaters extra support and "center" smaller boaters in middle of the seat.
Seat Shell and Molded Foam
Work together to provide ergonomic comfort and spinal support.
Stylish curve supports arm in natural, comfortable position.
Provides ventilation at lower back for cool comfort.
Creates rounded edge at front of seat. When bolster is down the seat exceeds ABYC H-31 Type A Driver requirements.
Detent holds bolster up at 102 degree angle with 7" height. Provides elevated seating for improved visibility when docking or maneuvering.
Recessed Bottom Angle
Rounded corners and recessed bottom angle minimize the bottom "footprint." Allows seat to swivel in confined spaces.
No Exposed Hinges
No ugly brackets or fasteners to color-match, pinch, or abrade.
Easy to Install ... Saves Assembly Time and Cost
Avenir seating can reduce upholstery and installation costs because it's refined to just four interlocking components. Avenir uses the marine-grade materials tested and proven in Centric SAS seats - thermoplastic shell and stainless steel suspension grid with corrosion-proof springs. It's all made possible by Attwood's unique qualifications for pleasure boat seating:
All springs and molded-plastic components are built for the real marine world. Tough construction withstands abusive environments.
Once upholstered, provides a quick, easy method to cover staples and seams on the upholstered seat shell. Allows design flexibility and creates a deep-tuck, finished look.
Onsert posts snap securely into foolproof clips for quick, easy assembly.
Flexes into keyed slots on the inside walls of seat shell. Cuts assembly cost because there are no brackets to color-match, assemble, or install.
SAS Seat Pan
Seat Pan has self-aligning posts that match pockets molded in the Seat Shell. T-Nuts in the Seat Pan match the universal bolt pattern of pedestal seat mounts and sliders. Fasteners from pedestal installation draw seat pan and shell together, forming a completed seat that exceeds tough ABYC H-31 Standards.
