DETAILED REVIEW

If there’s a clear trend in layouts this season, it’s in the resurgence of side settee-based lounges and this all-new Bürstner Harmony Line adopts this new lounge layout and incorporates it into a layout that also has the very popular island bed at the rear.

These twin side settee-based lounges come mostly with twin rear bed or island bed arrangements but they are not pure two-berths as, via a variety of methods, they offer the possibility of converting sofas into forward-facing single seats with seatbelts.

The move towards this design started with the likes of Rapido and Chausson leading the way and the advantages over the still-more-common half-dinette or L-shaped lounge are clear to see in a more open-plan, more spacious feel.

However, if you always, or usually, travel four-up you may still be better served by a half-dinette’s instantly available travel pews. And, if you’re tempted by these new layouts, it’s worth trying out the travel-seat-to-settee conversion for yourself – some are quicker and easier than others.

Bürstner’s Harmony Line offers a choice of new models with the parallel sofas for 2019 – the TD 727 G with single beds in the stern and the TD 736 (as reviewed here) with an island bed. Both measure 7.49m overall and have a licence-friendly 3,500kg gross weight.

The standard TD 736 is a two-berth but a drop-down bed (2.00m by 1.35m/1.25m) over the lounge is available as an option, as is the kit to convert the seats into a transverse single berth.

The lounge comes with a fixed table, which folds in half to create more space, while the reversed ‘L’ galley continues the open-plan format. Typical Bürstner design cues, such as the quilted upholstery and under-counter lighting, give an upmarket impression.

Towards the rear, a toilet cubicle is next to the galley on the nearside, with a separate shower opposite, the two combining to create an en suite to the rear bedroom. Small locker doors on either side provide access to under-bed storage.

In line with previous Harmony Line models, this new model (and its sibling) has a pleasingly full specification.
