Where do you relax on your boat?

Hey! We are still researching our boat of choice. So, I have a non-boat owner stupid question.... thought a heads up on how naive we are....

We have been aboard boats 37 - 53 feet. The smaller boats have a salon large enough for a table and walkway. No room for really sitting and relaxing other than the built in settee. The boats with sun decks have lawn/patio furniture on them. Good enough for daytime, but not really at night time.

So, for you full-time cruisers, where do you relax at night? We relax at night in our Recliners. Very little room for these in the smaller boats.

Would we have time to "recline"? Is that why there is very little room for such devices? Do you adjust your lifestyle to sitting in the settee for all your TV viewing, reading a book, napping, etc. when not actually moving the boat? When the sun goes down, you go to bed? No need for the extra furniture?

Thanks. Just a bit confused by land vs sea lifestyle change we will be embarking on.
