    Ipe is another good wood choice. South or Central American. Lasts like teak but not as expensive. They have done some test areas of the Ocean City, NJ boardwalk and it has held up very well pretty much on the ocean.
    Acacia has been mentioned - should do fairly well if not in ground contact.

    Found two sets that are Eucalyptus, the right size table, 6 chairs for under $1,400 with free shipping to Florida. About $200.00 on a boat to here. There are no cushions but we can have custom seat and back cushions made for under $400.00

    I want to thank everybody for playing and that actually read my requirements you have a big tip o’ the hat to you

    I made this Ipe table last summer. Ipe will supposedly last 30+ years with no maintenance. My wood cost was $300 or so.

    Another vote for teak - I have set that has been exposed to the elements for 25 years. It is still in great shape (although it has turned grey since it's not oiled).

    Teak. We've had some teak lounges outside for ~12 years...only recently have they begun to show some of the junk growing on our trees. I've never put anything on them. Time to (carefully) powerwash them.

    Very nice. I don’t have the place, tools, skill, or inclination to do that
