I need a Marinette 32' couch

Postby honestcharlie56 » Sun Jun 04, 2017 10:01 am

If anyone has a couch sitting around for a marinette 32', I need one. Or a decent suggestion for a replacement. I'm near Houston, Tx and boat stays in Lake Charles, LA.

There are a lot of screw in those things and if the owner doesn't mind disassembly and you reassembly, trucking may be a viable option. I thin it's primarily the drawers that stay intact

While it would be a lot easier to buy one and that would be my first choice, they wouldn't be too tough to make--no? If I had to do it, I'd make a box with a piano-hinged lid that would provide more storage space than the drawers. Just a thought. Good luck.

We found our replacement couch on Wayfair.com.
Original price was around $600-700; however, we waited for a sale and free shipping…only paid $200!!!
Works wonderfully, super light compared to previous couch and even folds out to a twin bed.

Hello Imboating. Looks like your 32 has the B layout--i.e., without the dinette and with a bigger head and galley. I haven't seen many and wonder how you like it?

We love it. We looked at several 32’s and choose this one specifically because of the standalone shower and larger v-berth. Easy trade-off in-lieu of the dinette.
