This table design is similar to what my boat has only ours is in the dinette area and will drop down to create a berth. I really like the design since you can make a narrow table out of it, or fold it out full size. This is an example (not my boat) but you can see the table across the salon.

You may have had one in a sailboat. And that one is in a sailboat. But that exact same table was the standard table in GBs for years and I found that picture during an image search for "Grand Banks tables".

The guy got it off Craig's list.

My Mainship 30 Pilot II came with a heavy large cherry folding table that didn't really leave much room to get around, even when folded. It was very difficult to move up and down from the cabin to the upper deck because of it's weight. I replaced it with the Nautic Star Slide, teak table pictured, which we really love. It's fairly light and the leafs slide easily to about 13.5 inches to allow one to comfortably walk past. You can open one or both leafs and it's a breeze to move. The black splines are rubber to allow for swelling. The company is in England (see the link). My buying experience from the site was excellent and it was delivered to Connecticut in under a week at a reasonable cost.

I thought something like this would look great on a boat:


It was home-built. Build steps gallery here.

I'd expect strong waves/wakes would tip over some of the interior's stuff. I've been on 900+ foot ships with stabilizers having chairs and more crash to the floor.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. He built the table for his home, but I thought it would look really nice in a salon.

Good point about tipping over, regardless, and different legs would likely be a better idea.

For those of us who boat on a budget...

My boat came with this fold down table which had limited access because the PO had extended the cushion depth when he reupholstered.



I wanted better access and flexibility so I made two smaller tables from marine ply, covered with our local water's charts and sealed in thick coat of resin.



Then I added another table mount to the cockpit so one table could be easily moved in or out.



It gives me the flexibility I need in a small boat with a small salon and expands the comfort of the cockpit, making it more livable. Win, win!!

Bill is correct, the table he showed is exactly like the one we have in our 42 GB. Except us has a couple of bottles in the storage bins below.
