Big guy needs new bike seat

I am 6'4" and 270 lbs. Been riding a bike built for me for last 3 years and love it! Tall Fuji Steel touring frame but beefed up tandem components with 32mm tires. I ride +1000 miles a year. Bike seat was NOT designed for me and has broken. What do you recommend? I need something comfortable but do not want to go thru this every 2-3 years. Thanks.

I'm about your size and I have one of these Serfas Tailbones saddles on my Cannondale Quick hybrid. It does a great job for me. It's firm but not soft, absorbs impacts, easy to clean. I'll buy another if this one craps.
