Sealine do a nice teak range but uncheap! Don't suppose you would mind using their kit as it wont be branded. Incidentally, its wonderful to see your beatiful new yacht nearing the final stages and hope you will enjoy her eevn more than Magnum. Cheers. Roy
I agree about Onwards. Very good products although quite expensive for what it is. Comfortable to sit on , nice fold away tables of various sizes. My only comment would be that they lose the nice gloss look quite quickly and scratch easily. So you either need to oil it all regularly or live with the silvery teak look. (which is what we do). They show at all major boat shows and have a shop at (I think it was Saxon Wharf) nr. Southampton.
1. There is high end yacht furniture in teak and stainless, from advertisers in Boat International. Nice, seriously expensive, and usually non-foldaway. You will need to leave it out, and it's quite nick-able, so option #3 below is better imho
2. We went downmarket from that and wanted folding chairs due to size of our boat. Ours came from Onward Trading and we got upgraded padded cushions in that waterweave fabric, costing about £350 a chair all in I think. It is perfectly ok, but needs regular oiling (ours was being done once a month in the summer) becuase you need a slightly more semigloss oiled look on your furniture than on your decks, imho. Crew will oil it and I confidently predict you will get 1x full time crew on M2! Also, make sure to specify all stainless steel hinges etc (if, like us, you want a no-gold-bits boat) or brass.
3. If I had known about Timage's products when we bought ours, I would have got their chairs. They supply a beautiful folding chair that is miles superior to the Onward Trading chair imho. It is made from thicker sectioned chunky looking teak and has beautiful ironmongery. They had some at LIBS. Spensive, maybe £600+/chair, but worth it, looks fab quality. Significantly better than Onward trading imho. Definitely the ones to get if can source them
Onward Tr are www.onwardtrading.com but I dunno the website for Timage, tel 01376 343087. Askem to mail a catalog - I thing they do one. Or a digipic
As for tables, all seem pretty similar. Ours is onward Trading
Here's a pic of our Onward Tr stuff. All ok, but having now compared them to the Timage chairs these Onw Trade ones seem a bit spindly and cheapy, dang :-(
Timage is the high end of the market product. Don't buy Outward Trading. I had their chairs and table and the hinges corroded within a short space of time, the seat bases spilt and the wood finish deteriorated substantially.
