Houseboat Furniture - love this table/bed/sleeper/sofa layout

We have a 2001, 41 foot Gibson houseboat and we love the boat but found this interior table (into bed) and sofa set up on another Gibson.

When it comes to efficient houseboat furniture, there are some designs and layouts that make great use of the available and limited space.

As in the picture above, we wonder who makes this - as it looks like it came from the factory. Any info would be greatly appreciated, Ken.

Well Ken, congratulations on your 2001 Gibson, a fine boat it is.

As to the table, sleeper, bed, sofa combination in the picture, I think it did come from the factory. I presume a quick phone call and emailing of the picture would get the answer.

Either way, even if it didn't come from the factory, it appears to be a fairly simple project to build for someone with some tools, some space, and naturally some time on their hands.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their houseboat furniture, bed, sleeping arrangements and layout experiences.
