Most likely fabricated with the seat, or leaning post, whatever that is. Dropped in a generic cupholder insert.

The metal part is likely to have been custom made by the people who made the leaning post, at least I have never seen one commercially available retail. The plastic part is made by several companies and widely available for a few dollars. We have them in stock and could send you one if you need. I would be happy to include some boat soap for a few dollars more. ;-)

Plastic part is the easy part - this is a customers boat (he supplied the photo) and asked if we knew where to purchase. Never seen before, but betting somebody sells it on the retail market.

birdsall marine has something close that I've found since posting this question....

Rabud.com or Dusky.com online store has them and they are expensive, like $35 each.

If the above doesn't work try Flounder Pounder marine online, outta FL. If I'm looking at that pic right, the boat is a pathfinder and FP marine sells all the surplus stuff from M/H/P boats.

Try FP Marine Mike. If they have it, I could run by and pick it up or look at it for you.
Take care

I can't quite tell from the photo - the metal of the cup-holder-holder is welded onto the top of the tube?

I'm looking for the same in a no-weld version. I've never seen these anyway, I picked up a couple made out of starboard but have not gotten around to fabricating a way to mount them appropriately.

Would be nice if that metal piece had a skinny L bracket on the back, they might just wedge between the tube and the seat cushion. Cup holders in between rod holders are a great invention.

I think where to put your beer should be a bit lower on your list of boating needs at this point

ETEC Marine sells nice ones but they are wholesale only so you need to get them from a fab shop. Otherwise, see if one of these fits for six bucks.

Dragging this back up..........

Anyone know where to get the weld on bracket in aluminum? About to add some rod holders and a back rest to my leaning post and could use a few.

Where are companies buying their rod holders, cupholders, tubing etc from?
