Most recently, Freedman Seating was awarded the New York Citywide Ferry Service Project, which will include Freedman’s Gemini seat throughout its 19 vessels. The NYC Ferry service debuted in May 2017, carrying passengers along the East River in Manhattan. The new vessels built by Metal Shark and Horizon Shipbuilding will carry an estimated 4.6 million passenger trips per year on Freedman’s Gemini seats.
The Gemini seat is engineered for maximum seating capacity, safety and longevity. Its space saving design is ergonomically efficient and ultra-lightweight. Ultimately, Freedman passenger seats give boat builders more passenger load capacity and seating options, making the Gemini seat a perfect fit for NYC Ferry.
A unique line of Freedman Seating legacy seats have been re-engineered for the marine market. Every seat is proven in the field as a superior alternative to the existing options.
