When in colder climates, you really want a decent table in the saloon, rather than the standard coffee table. We looked at the options that FP gave us but were not happy. We wanted a table placed longitudinally in the boat. The athwartships placed tables that FP offers do not allow easy walking between the table and the island. Also, the corners are square rather than round.
We ordered a Lucia table and shortened it 25cm by taking out a section from the middle. We also ordered the same legs as the cockpit table and reduced the height to 61cm to keep a ‘one style’ look. To ensure easy seating access, we made a sliding mechanism under the table so that it slides away from the seat.
