I also have a GB 42, #139, and have solved the Captain's Chair problem.
My chair came from the bar at the Royal Papua Yacht Club in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Mine was a gift when I left PNG but I have subsequently found out you can order one through the company's Australian office in Brisbane.
The chair comes dismantled with all the necessary fittings and tools to put it together (some assembly required).
The disassembled chair comes in a flat box of reasonable size and could be Fedex'ed or surface shipped. I have no idea about the cost but there are over a hundred of them in the RPYC so they can not be too expensive.
I have attached two pictures which gives an idea of the chair's size. Big enough to be comfortable but not take up all the available space in a GB 42. The chair also has enough shape to be comfortable over an entire day's steaming. The wood is locally known as kwila wood which is a local variation of teak grown in PNG. The company manufactures them in PNG from sustainable farmed teak but normally ships put of Australia

I have been using this chair for about 8 years. I wipe it with Watco Teak Oil about once a year to keep the color. I also have two shorter copies (normal chair height) on the flying bridge.
Just an option with a little bit of a story behind it to make it interesting. It is not a Home Depot special!!
