Looking for New Helm Seat

We are, hopefully, buying a Belize 43 and need a new helm seat for it. It currently has two chair-style seats, but we want a bench-style seat. Does anyone know where we can find one? I've been on-line and have found nothing. Help!!

I had one custom made by a local canvas shop that resembles the right one in this picture.

Several years ago our original two person seat rotted away so we replaced it with a seat for a Mahe. Peter Cohen in St. Matin helped us order it from the factory. Mounting it was a piece of cake.

That's a great idea. When the time comes, I'll contact a rep in the States. I really love the molded seats.

Thank you,

Maje

Tom and Maje,


Did you ever get your Belize 43? How did the new helm seat work out for you?
