Although the built in settee is super comfortable & holds 5 people , my wife bought 4 portable chairs that work in the salon or cockpit. They have hinged folding tables attached. ($80 at Amazon)

My passion for improving my boat(s) exceeds my desire to constantly cruise them.

We just bought a Stressless recliner for the boss yesterday. It fits very well and is really comfortable, not that I'm ever going to get to use it. It's kind of spendy but I think it's going to hold up well with stainless and plastic parts and a 10 year warranty.

No problem , there are lots of RV items that are known as zero clearance.

That means it can be placed against a wall and function by folding out , not back.

Google " zero clearance rv recliner chairs"

There are dozens of sources , recliners , couches what ever .

Built for vehicles , they can easily be bolted down.

Thanks for this link FF. We have a jackknife Flexsteel sofa and I didn't realize it is probably an RV product. It's one of the most comfortable sofas I've sat it. Way more comfortable than those built in settees for boats. It's starting to wear a bit and we'd like to have it reupholstered of possible, and if it doesn't break the bank. Pam uses the sofa (lucky girl) and I have to,settle,for the Ikea poang chair with ottoman. It's "ok".

An important difference between using home furniture and custom built settees, benches and cabinets is the amount of storage space that can be built in.

The value of storage space goes up the longer one spends on the boat at any one time. Those of us who spend months at a time on the boat treasure every cubic foot of space.

Sorry it took so long to reply. It came with the boat. Hope the pic helps. Built in 1998.

Thanks everyone. You have given me a bunch of ideas. Now all I need to do is buy a bigger boat that can accommodate real furniture. I will have to stick with wicker for my current boat .

We needed a couch, but could not find anything that would fit through our narrow sliding door. Eventually found a system that you assemble on site. Comfortable, easy to assemble, not expensive and has a good amount of storage. Happy with our purchase. Here's a link.
