I just got the new Ar240 and love it. Does anyone know if I can mount the seat cushions that are on the swim platform that are on the 242x or limited 242 on my AR240?

I would think so.

Also, @JetBoatPilot used to make some super thick seadeck pads to use as cushions. Not sure if they still do or not.

I think any canvas shop can put snaps in to button those seat cushions down, JBP I think sold a kit to install the snaps as well. We grabbed a few throwable square floats to use occasionally for about $12 to sit on.

We just bought some from Cycle Springs off Ebay. JBP doesn't sell them anymore. We tried there first. Going to try to find an install video and put them on tomorrow!!!

Just found some seats from cycle springs on eBay and it says the seller is away until August 1st. I sent a message to get more info but that’s a bummer, just when I thought I had something.
@CokeZero, do you remember if this was the case when you ordered and what model did you order seats for? I think he only has 190’s listed.

We have a 2019 AR240. My wife ended up ordering them, and she "says" that the guy wrote back and told her they were the same cushion. Cycle Springs is the place @JetBoatPilot pointed me towards. They said they had been pushing all the calls for upholstery to them.

Did you get your order from them? How do they look?

Just FYI it's a pain in the a** to have to remove them every time you want access to the clean out ports. I went with the thick sea deck and have had no regrets. (My boat is not a 2020 just assuming clean out ports are still under that area)

It really isn’t that bad. Just pulled them this afternoon. I positioned one of the 4 snaps per seat right past the t-handle so all I do is pop one and I can get hatch opened no problem. I did look at the thick sea deck though. I’ve read good things. We just took up snap in carpet and did full seadek on entire boat in June. We love it.

That's one of the features we liked with the Vortex models - built-in cushions on the swim platform. We had no need for a 24' boat so instead if we're hanging out at the back we have colour matched grey outdoor seat cushions with the ties on them (the kind you get for outdoor patio chairs). We just tie them off so can't "fall" into the water and they look great with the seadeck and colours of the seats.
