Konsort Cushions

Post by Rob Pike » Wed Feb 18, 2015 5:37 pm

I am looking at replacing the cushions on a newly purchased Konsort but I am struggling to find anywhere on the net that I could get a guide price for these. I am looking at replacing foam also so I want a complete job.

I have had a guide to new upholstry for my Fulmar from a couple of well known suppliers and both said about £2500 upward depending on fabric. I have now located a small local firm that has been personally recommeded by 2 Westerly owners and am just about to get a quote from them which should be cheaper.

I used these people for my Centaur interior. As I remember (well it was some 5 years ago) I had two replacement/new foams and all 10 pieces of soft items (cushions, backrests and berths) recovered including stockinette backing/lining in a water resistant velvety type material for about £1,300.00. They were extremely quick and helpful.

Visited the local upholstery firm this morning and very pleased with the estimate I received. Will get a firm price once they have measured up my Fulmar. Should come out £1000 to £1200 for all cushions including new 4" foam. Certainly half the price from 2 well known firms I already had quotes from.

What are the downsides? Only work locally, so not possible for all owners. The premises are a very scruffy old shed that is not heated, rather than a modern heated unit. Delivery will be about 8 weeks or slightly more.

Also located another local marine upholstery firm that could possibly be worth contacting.

Once I have decided who to use, this will be added to my Renovation of Concerto thread

Hi, out of interest what sort of condition is your old quarter berth cushion in? I too am doing up a rather tired Konsort and it's my first boat. I don't want to do the cushions just yet as there is a lot of dusty and smelly jobs to do (fuel tank replacement, headlining and General sanding/varnishing) But the previous owner stuffed loads of polythene in the quarter berth void which allowed water and mould to destroy the original blue upholstered foam cushion. If you're likely to throw yours away and it isn't infested with mould, could I have it as a temporary infill, please?

Hello Konsortium, we've just acquired second-hand cushions for our Konsort (also working on a budget!!) and about to chuck the quarterberth one though it's still in perfectly useable condition if you don't mind orange/brown stripes. Unfortunately we're in the Hebrides, a long way from Kent. It could possibly be rolled and posted or maybe someone from Kent would enjoy a night's B & B in paradise!!

Sorry for the delay in responding, my wife has been in hospital delivering our new babies, (twins) and we are learning the joys of sleep deprivation, whilst being deliriously happy!

Your offer is a very kind one and a week in paradise sounds hard to refuse! We will however see if anything else turns up on the south coast but thanks again, the offer was very generous of you.

Good luck with you boat!

Well, we've kept it while dumping the rest! Just as well you have a Konsort if you're in the habit of adding to your family in twos ;) Congratulations and I hope the sleep deprivation doesn't last long. If nothing else, it's good training for one of those nights when the anchor refuses to hold ... not that a Konsort would ever be so bad-mannered :lol:
