Finally, a saloon worth sitting in

Bagabonda new seating in the cockpit

We’re about to spill the beans on a little secret that has transformed life aboard Bagabonda. You might recall those throw pillows we used to scatter around the cockpit for comfort. Well, let’s say we’ve taken things up a notch, and it’s all thanks to a chance meeting with an upholstery specialist during our stop in Almerimar.

When we first acquired Bagabonda, she came with a few throw pillows that we affectionately dubbed “seating solutions.” Let’s be honest; they were about as comfortable as a deck chair made of cacti. Sure, they did the job in a pinch, but we always knew it was a temporary fix.

Enter Sandra, the Upholstery Whiz:

As luck would have it, while we were soaking up the sun and sea breeze in Almerimar, we crossed paths with Sandra, a bona fide specialist in upholstery. You know those serendipitous moments that feel like the universe is winking at you? Meeting Sandra was one of those moments.

Crafting the Perfect Saloon:

With Sandra on board (not literally, of course!), we set out to create a saloon area in the cockpit that’s so comfortable you’ll practically want to move in permanently. We worked closely with her to design and shape new cushions that look the part and make lounging a dream.

A Touch of Luxury on the Aft Deck:

But that’s not all – we decided to take our comfort game even further. Sandra helped us add plush mattresses to the aft deck, transforming it into a sun deck that’s the stuff of daydreams. It’s like having your own private oasis right there on the water.

Craftsmanship Meets Comfort:

What truly sets Sandra’s work apart is her commitment to craftsmanship. Each cushion and each mattress is meticulously crafted to perfection. We opted for materials that provide the ultimate comfort and stand up to the rigors of life at sea. After all, we’re not just after aesthetics; we want these additions to last.

Pictures Speak Louder Than Words:

We could go on and on about the sheer luxury and comfort that Sandra’s work has brought to Bagabonda, but sometimes, pictures say it best. Look at the photos in this article; you’ll see what we mean. Our once Spartan seating area in the cockpit now boasts a beautifully crafted set of cushions that look fabulous and make life on board incredibly comfortable.

The Sun Deck You’ve Always Dreamed Of:

As for the aft deck – it’s now a sun deck that rivals the finest beach resorts. With these comfy mattresses, it’s the perfect spot to soak up the sun, stargaze, or simply relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of the sea.
