Boat Mattress: Where to Buy & Factors to consider

Is your boat crying out for a new mattress? If so, you could be sleeping soundly in no time with a brand new custom-designed boat mattress. If you’re eager to enjoy the same levels of comfort as you do when you climb into bed at home, investing in a high-quality, bespoke product is an excellent idea.

Boat mattress options

You may think that if you choose to sleep on a boat, you have to make do with a limited range of options when it comes to selecting a mattress, but you’d be wrong! There’s a vast array of boat mattresses available, including memory foam, latex, traditional foam and versatile air mattresses. In addition to having access to a diverse selection of materials, you can also add a custom base to any of these mattress options to provide additional spinal support and a soft comfort layer for that all-important cozy feel. Foam mattresses come with generous warranties, and they should last up to 20 years if well cared-for. 

If you’re looking for a new boat mattress, we can provide tailored options to suit your preferences and requirements. Usually, mattresses measure 10-15cm (4”-6”) in thickness with a dual role that involves serving as a seat and a bed. With our custom boat mattresses, we can provide you with a range of sizes, catering for yachts, sailing boats and smaller vessels. 

Boat mattress sizes

Boat mattresses tend to be shorter and thinner than those found in conventional bed stores. Typically, mattresses follow these sizing guidelines:

  • Twin: 38″ x 75″
  • Full: 53″ x 75″ 
  • Queen: 60″ x 80″ 
  • King: 76″ x 80″ 
  • Cal King: 72″ x 84″ 
  • WB King: 68″ x 82″ 

While there are often similarities between residential mattresses and products aimed at boat owners, it’s important to note that there may be differences in sizing. 

Why would I need a custom boat mattress?

There are a few reasons why you may wish to explore the option of buying a custom-made boat mattress. These include:

  • Catering for an unusual shape or space, for example, buying a mattress for a cabin or room with cut corners
  • Specifying characteristics, for example, material and size
  • Catering for individual preferences and requirements: for example, choosing a mattress that is designed to provide more robust spinal support

Boat mattress maintenance tips

To keep your boat mattress in tip-top condition, here are a couple of simple steps you can take:

  • Air your mattress: boats can pose problems such as a risk of mold and mildew because they are exposed to moisture. Moisture can become trapped between the mattress and its base. To prevent problems, air your mattress on the deck every couple of days with the covers on.
  • Keep your mattress vertical when not in use: when you’re not using your mattress, store it vertically.
  • Sprinkle anti-fungal powder on your mattress and the platforms beneath it.
  • Opt for memory foam, latex foam or polyurethane to prevent softening

If you own a boat, there’s no reason why you can’t sleep peacefully on the high seas. Investing in a custom-designed boat mattress can help to enhance comfort and prevent pain. 

Where Can I Get A Boat Mattress?

A boat mattress can be found pre-made by some mattress retailers, but chances are you will not find one in the big-box mattress stores. The best route to go for ordering a boat mattress is a custom order.

Many manufactures are willing to work with you so that your covers, foam thickness and densities, and technology is perfected to your desires. This way, you will know exactly what is going into your mattress.

Custom ordering will give you a higher quality mattress, and might not be as expensive as you may think. It’s worth it to ask a manufacturer for a quote.
