Interesting Boat Deck Set Up

I was a bit taken aback with this upper deck set up - thoughts?

Nice party boat! I was going to say I haven't that many friends, but I guess if I could afford the boat the friends would naterialize 8-)

Greetings,
Mr. m. I agree. That fire pit DOES suggest some interesting possibilities...

I wish I could afford this one. I could host my wife and my 2 mistresses, each one in her own cabin, and I could watch my favorite movie while grilling sausages in my fire pit... true life!

Ok to be honest it is a nice boat but with some... unwanted features

Wouldn't you have thought that the broker would have advised to get that all off the boat?

At least they pulled the woodburning Franklin stove out of the master cabin

Looks good to me

I think it looks great! I dont sail in places that needed heat, but...

Here is the sun deck of our boat. One pic before furniture and the other after.

It is something a lot of people might like.

You never really know with boats.

Certainly isnt a safety issue any more than having a stove top or indoor propane stovetop grill with a ceiling over it. Its not like it is a bonfire pit, only a very controlled propane flame.

Maybe alcohol? nice and quiet but perhaps more dangerous?

Better outside than in I suppose, at least that's what mum used to say coming home from the pub

Gordon, that sun deck looks very pleasant.

How have your secured that furniture? Around here, unless it was bolted down it would slide all over in rough weather. Of course, around here it would be soaking wet and covered with mold and mildew after a week so....

I have an outdoor sectional couch on my sundeck. Hidden bungee cords work for securing. I think most of the boat was staged for photos.

Dave,

We have stabilizers. Nothing moves on port boat. Buying a stabilized boat was the best thing I could have done.

Yup, that would make a difference all right. Very nice.

Donna, did you know your boat was being used by alcohol-imbibers?

What's not to like about that boat? I can smell marshmallows sticking to the upholstery as I type this. Me like.

I'm sure this will come out upside down. It's right side up on our boat. Maybe one of you techies can give an old fart a hand.

LOL! I took the pic. My daughter on the right and one of our friends on the left! No drinking for me when underway.
