Top 9 Marine Seating Ideas: from custom made upholstery to luxury petite recliners, ideal for canal boats, river boats & yachts.

At Aqua Furnishings we know the value of marine seating & small furniture that fits into your required space, be that a narrowboat, riverboat or yacht. We have a range of space saving products, that offer luxury, design and the technical qualities needed in a marine environment. So here are our Top 9 marine seating ideas:

custom indoor seating cushions

Custom Indoor Seating Cushions

Aqua Furnishings offer luxurious and high quality indoor seating cushions, custom made for your saloon area. Available in many plain & patterned upholstery fabrics, each chosen for their beautiful colour, texture and resistance to soil & stains. All our upholstery fabric has a min of 40,000 Martindale which is is the unit of measurement for the amount of times the fabric can be rubbed without wear. With a choice of fabrics, piping and button additions you can truly make your indoor seating cushion bespoke to fit your boat. If you need irregular shaped seating cushions or would like to contrast the piping and buttons, then one of our sales consultants will be in touch to discuss your requirements further.

Custom Dinette Seating Cushions

These are made to the same standard as the indoor seating, however if you’re replacing existing dinette seating we can recreate the same seating measurements as before. For example if your seating area makes up a bed we can recreate the exact mechanism. Furthermore, if you don’t currently have the seating for your dinette, we can measure the area and create cushions for your specifications. Creating a dinette is a great way to be space efficient in a boat.
