This seat base will replace your original platform with this one that is 4 inches taller. The seat base was formed and then CNC machined and powder coated for a durable finish a great look. It comes with a Malibu sticker stick on it. It is a simple bolt-on part that is easy to install using the original hardware. See the malibu crew forum for reasons to have this bolt-on part.
The seat and original base not included as pictured. The black powder coated seat base is the part for sale on auction. In picture 2 shows the factory seat base and the bolt on replacement. This will fit most Malibu boats from 2002 to 2009. Make sure your seat base is the same as the one pictured. This will also fit up to 2012 v ride models. If you have a newer Malibu boat and would like a seat riser kit.
