CoastalPro Shock Mitigation Seats

CoastalPro designed their first shock mitigation seat in 2005 in response to a request from a team attempting a Round Britain RIB challenge. The team’s design brief for the shock mitigation seats was that the seats had to be;




Cost effective

Amazed that no other shock mitigation seat could fulfil all of these requirements CoastalPro’s founder drew on his unique experience as both an aeronautical engineer, and his first-hand knowledge of the necessity for comfort and safety at high speed, to design and engineer "the neatest and most practical, in terms of cost/comfort, of all the suspension seats.” RIB Magazine.

Since 2009 our range of shock mitigation seats has expanded to include seats for professional, military, recreational and custom OEM boat builders all over the world.

We take great pride and care in the shock mitigation seats we produce and our Compact model still remains the only seat on the market which truly fulfils the requirements of the original design brief.

Our shock mitigation seats are designed and manufactured to guarantee the finished product meets the strict quality and performance criteria to provide a lifetime of use in the harsh sea environment, whilst remaining lightweight, cost effective and simple to install on new RIBs or to retrofit to existing craft.

Each component of our shock mitigation seats undergoes extensive computer aided analysis, laboratory and real life testing on commercial RIBs. During this testing stage, the shock mitigation seat is monitored for shock reduction performance. Only when we are confident with the shock mitigation seat’s ability to provide a long, reliable life do we offer it to our valued customers.
