Give Your Boat Bed A Well-Deserved Mattress Upgrade

Updated: Nov 14, 2023

Let’s talk about your boat mattress.

For many boat owners, your boat’s bed is an afterthought. It’s only when you are getting ready to wind down for the night that you are confronted by a musty boat mattress that has seen better days. Yacht beds and their mattresses tend to be the way the same as RV beds, airplane beds, airstream mattresses – they’re all kind of just… there. You’re in a luxury vehicle, but its bed is not luxury.

Chances are, you’ve just been dealing with it, because it’s close to impossible to find a boat mattress at a mattress retailer. Whether you have a sailboat, a yacht, a houseboat, or a trawler, you deserve a great boat mattress that makes you excited to sleep comfortably out on the water. What’s the point on having a yacht if your yacht’s bed is trash? It’s kind of missing the point.

You can find custom mattress manufacturers for boat beds online.

When it comes to outfitting your boat with the ideal sleeping space, custom mattress manufacturers are the answer. Finding the right boat mattress doesn't have to be a challenging endeavor. These expert craftsmen are well-versed in the art of creating custom mattresses tailored to the unique dimensions of your boat's space, particularly for yacht beds.

While you might come across convenient memory foam mattresses that come vacuum-packed in a box, they may not work in your boat's sleep cabin. The key to a great yacht mattress lies in its ability to fit your space naturally and efficiently. It should be large enough to ensure a comfortable rest yet not dominate the entire area. For instance, opting for a mattress with a hinge can transform your yacht bed into an easily accessible storage space underneath.

Custom mattress manufacturers specialize in the intricacies of boat beds. They understand that a one-size-fits-all approach won't suffice. They can create the perfect custom mattress to meet the specific needs of your boat. With a custom boat bed, you can ensure a restful and comfortable night's sleep while at sea. With their expertise and knowledge of boat mattresses, you can trust that your boat's sleeping quarters will be a haven of comfort and functionality.

A great boat/yacht mattress is durable and supportive.

High-quality materials are important for any good custom mattress, but especially for boat mattresses that will need to be durable enough to withstand your boating adventures. And luckily, durability does not have to equal discomfort. With a great custom boat mattress, you won’t need these simple tips on how to get a good night’s sleep on your boat, because your custom mattress will be made with your exact firmness and texture preferences in mind.

Memory foam mattresses are great for many settings, but they might not be ideal for boat beds, especially when you have other options that are just as luxurious and comfortable. Covering your custom foam mattress with a sealed, waterproof cover is a decent solution.

But you can also choose to have your yacht mattress made out of natural latex instead of foam, memory foam or coils. A custom latex boat mattress is going to give you all the comfort memory foam would but with more resistance to the constant moisture that goes along with being out on the open water.

Another important factor when making yacht mattresses is to make sure they fit securely in your berth and won’t slide around. Getting a boat mattress with cut or rounded corners can help ensure your mattress will fit snugly and that you are not wasting any valuable space. A good boat mattress with custom foam/gel memory foam or natural latex means your mattress will conform to and support your body every time you hop into bed.

A firmer mattress is better for sleeping on the water.

A firmer mattress can be a game-changer for boat beds, offering enhanced support and comfort during voyages and we have a whole blog post about it. In the confined space of a boat, a firmer mattress provides better spinal alignment. It reduces the risk of discomfort or pain that can result from inadequate support. Its firmness also minimizes motion transfer, ensuring that movements on one side of the mattress won’t disturb those on the other.

This is particularly advantageous for shared boat beds. Additionally, a firmer mattress is often more durable and resilient, capable of withstanding the unique challenges of a marine environment. With a firmer boat mattress, you not only experience better sleep but also a more enjoyable and comfortable journey on the water.

Don’t Forget to Get Some Custom Sheets for Your Boat’s Bed
