Finding luxury bathtub that's smaller than 5 ft?

We are remodeling our master bathroom, and my wife wants a luxury type tub, something deep and with jets. However, we've come to realize that space in our bathroom only allows for the tub to be 58-58.5" long, and most tubs of this type (or any type, really) are at least 60" long. Does anyone know where I can find a smaller jetted bathtub? We are desperate at this point, we've checked many places including home depot and lowes. Thank you.

Your standard Japanese tub is deep enough to sit with water above shoulders; it's more like a cube shape so length won't be a problem. These dimensions are economical, as most people want a soak every evening. Ideally, the bathroom is designed so tub floor is somewhat below bathroom floor.

I've never seen a (Japanese) standard tub with jets, though.

You can get them in North America. Pricey because specialty item.

Are you measuring with the walls torn out? You may have more room than you think?

You might try a mobile home supply center, MH tubs are 54" or 56" long [I forget which]
