Where to buy furniture for trawlers?

Any thoughts of any online stores specializing in marine furniture? I have a 32 Island Gypsy and I have torn out the very uncomfortable sofa in the salon in hopes of finding a hide a bed sofa and some sort of table to replace the stock table that I tore out of my boat. Just took up too much room.

I have to order NEW and make sure it's a piece that I can assemble so it will fit in the aft door which is quite narrow.

Wondering if anyone has some good ideas?
Thanks

Stores specializing in condo furniture or European furniture which tends to be smaller.

We have a Flexsteel sofa in our boat that we are pretty sure is for RVs. Pretty sure it's real leather. We are looking to get it refinished. It's a very comfortable piece of furniture, just showing a bit of age.

Actually they do some smaller items or design to the size you want. Might have something. I don't know. Place freaks me out. I'm not a Scandinavian type girl I guess. Blonde and blue eyes apparently isn't enough.

Look also at furniture designed and sold for NY apartments. Crate and Barrel has some.

Many on line RV places will offer what is called zero clearence items.

This means a recliner or a couch can be an inch from a wall, and still operate.

Many also offer tables that can change height or unfold.

Here is one with a display in FL.

Also check our the big RV dealers as FF mentioned. We had a custom couch built when we had the Mainship.

Must be a KK42 thing. I've got the same "Poang" chair that Larry has. Fallen asleep many evenings in it.

Great suggestion! Two years ago we has glastop make us a sofa and 2 barrel chairs for the boat. Plenty of storage under cushions, quality fabrics from Sunbrella and easy installation once inside the salon through our narrow doorway.

The RV items suffer from the same space restrictions , so lots of stuff can be taken apart to get it aboard.

RV is usually cheaper and more selection. However, we re upholster the old. Maybe change the style comfort. Big cheap we did it ourselves.
