If you dream of getting gently rocked to sleep by the ocean while snuggled down in your boat, you are not alone. A custom boat mattress can make that dream come true, as buying a custom bed guarantees that you will get a handmade mattress that fulfills your everyday sleep preferences, while also fitting in your boat perfectly. If you have ever tried to sleep on the stiff foam pad that your boat likely came with, you already know that it can hardly be called a ‘mattress’, and it definitely didn’t let you get the good night’s sleep you deserve.
There is no reason you should have to sacrifice comfort in order to sleep on your boat. Whether you are looking for a mattress for your yacht, trawler, or sailboat, a great custom boat mattress can be made to fit the exact shape of your cabin and let you sleep soundly among the waves.
Although the best materials for your boat bed will depend on your personal sleep preferences, in general a foam mattress is what you will typically find on most boats. This is because foam is lightweight and dries quicker than other mattress materials. Also, having a soft cotton cover will help protect your mattress from water and dirt, and is great for keeping sleepers cool at night.
Customizing a boat mattress to fit your boat’s specific V-berth is a great way to use the limited space of a boat efficiently. Make the most of buying a custom boat mattress by also adding rounded or cut corners to make sure your mattress has the best fit possible for your boat, and is therefore less likely to move or shift while you are sailing. A custom hinge mattress is also an ideal way to maximize the storage available, as it creates more space under your bed.
Your boat mattress should have all the luxury of your bed at home, so talk to a custom mattress company about how much control you can have over a mattress's firmness, and if they have gel memory foam options. Happy sailing (and sleeping)!
