Mattress

Where does everyone get their mattresses from? I would like to replace my queen mattress but a standard one wonít fit. Rounded corners on the foot.

Hi Donna,

There are some very expensive custom boat mattress builders. There are some very reasonable mattress makers for home and RVs. Some buy a memory foam mattress and cut it to fit. There have been a couple of threads on boat mattresses in the last few years on TF. While I plan to get a new one, haven't decided which way I'm going.

I too have a queen with rounded corners.

I just use a plain foam mattress from Mattress Firm and live with the edges hanging over. No one seems to notice or care.

Very comfy mattress.

I figured if I ever care, I woud cut them off or tape them in.

Thanks Ted. Since I don’t live onboard I’d prefer not to spend 2 grand on a mattress. I have a memory foam now with a beauty rest topper also memory foam. Hate it. Bad leg cramps in the middle of the night because it won’t allow me to move. Ugh had a “when Harry met sally” moment docked in St. Augustine next to a boat from my yacht club and I’m quite sure they heard me. I now have new windows! Lol!

I use a sleep number bed in my guest suite. I had a stainless steel bracket made that holds the bed in place and I just let the corners hang over the sides.

Tilt rider, That’s what I have at home. Too expensive for the boat.

I just bought a 12" memory foam mattress on Amazon for $300. It doesn't have the rounded corners, but honestly the small amount that hangs over is really not in the way, at least in our cabin and it looks great. Regular sheets fit it. All positives...

I know some folks have cut this same mattress with a hot knife to shape it, but it's cheap and extremely comfortable and works great as is.

I got mine from Amazon, memory foam queen size. My berth has rounded corners so I cut the mattress with an electric knife to fit the berth. Easy. I then put a memory foam topper on top. Most comfortable mattress we own. And I ordered it next day delivery and paid extra for that. UPS dropped the ball and it didnít come so Amazon refunded the whole cost for the mattress and that made it especially comfortable...

I understand. In my case, I already had the bed so I decided to make it work.

I went to Matress Firm, tried to sell me a Sealy but their cheaper and thinner Matress Firm matress was much more comfy and fit better.

One consideration is whether it fits through a companionway. I could not fit a regular queen mattress onto my boat and into the aft cabin, but the memory foam comes compressed, so getting it in was easy. Getting it out; that will require the hot knife when the time comes.

The mattress that was on my boat when we bought the boat was like a rock. The marina wanted it so they helped get it out of the boat. It took 5 guys pushing and pulling to get it out the door. I was just going to cut it up with an electric knife but since they wanted it I said why not. The memory foam mattress was easy to get in since it was vacuum packed.

On our last boat we got a memory foam at Samís Club.....8 inches of foam with 4 inches of memory foam on top. We rounded the corners with an electric carving knife. I loved it. Tom hated it. We are weekenders on the boat so it worked out well. (Well, for me anyway!)

Most of those storefront mattress stores have their own factories that should be able to make you a custom mattress at a more reasonable price than a specialty maker. If not, just drive to the next one down the road. They are very competitive, & known to negotiate.
