Space saving table designs

Having a great desire to make the interior of boats more spacious I have looked high and low for plans and designs for ways to bulkhead mount the table in the main cabin. I have found pictures - mainly on websites containing boats listed for sale.

I have removed the table in my Pearson and would like to duplicate - as well as possible - the table design of the Sabre 36 or 38. It appears to be functional as well as attractive.

If anyone has plans or pictures - showing all views of the underside as well as the hinging, leg attachment, wall mounting etc. - that is willing to share I would greatly appreciate it.

Also if anyone has a favorite design (with the above information) they would be willing to share with me (and the group) again it would be greatly appreciated.

My personal email is jobark01@msn.com

Thanks in advance.

It might be worth your time to peruse this thread ( LINK ) if you haven't already.

Sounds like a nice upgrade. Good luck!

The Sabre table design is very similar to the one on my Island Packet 380 (photo below). The extension on mine is hinged so that it rests on the top of the "half" table, rather than hanging down. The eating surface is Formica.

It's a great design. Hope you're successful getting it installed!

John, Thanks - the thread confirmed I am not the only one who has and will change the configuration of the salon table. Hud, this is exactly where I want to go with the new mounting and set up. I do like the extension resting on the other table instead of hanging as in the Sabre configuration.

Just getting the legs mounted in such a way to minimize the thickness of the stowed table is one of my concerns - thus the request for pictures of the 'underside' of the table.

Jim,

Mine has one leg, hinged so that when the table swings down, it supports it nicely. When the extension is flipped over, there are a couple of aluminum legs with suction cups and rubber feet, stored in a hanging locker that attach under the extension to support it.

When the table is stowed, the single leg that supports the "half table" configuration attaches to the bottom of the table with a snap.

I hope I interpreted your question correctly.

We have a little table in our little cutter that's just big enough for a cozy dinner. I think it's an RV collapsible. All teak.

Your IP 380 table is the same arrangement as my Bristol 29.9 and it works great.

Table from C&C

I found this design and I love it. It is from a C&C 27. The table top is one piece and it is out of the way when not needed. The table slides on the bar to the center of the salon. I am adapting the concept to fit in an SJ23.

Down my table looks like this - a double berth.



Up it looks like this



It has a single fat telescopic leg and clamp - to hold it up. When down, it's resting on ribs around the seating.
