Sheets & Blankets

We just bought a 53' Selene. Where can I get sheets and blankets for the 2 staterooms and bunks for a reasonable price??

Congrats on your new boat! Looks like you're on the US East Coast...have you tried Macy's or Bed Bath and Beyond? We use typical high thread count, home-style sheets and blankets.

Walmart. Where all the interesting people shop. But if you want sheets fitted to an irregular shape mattress, prepare to pay.

I have found it is still just as easy and way cheaper to use off the shelf stuff and tuck it in rather than custom stuff.

It's not that bad to deal with. On my 3rd liveaboard with about 10 years aboard.

If you measure the mattress, you should have the answer.

If the bunks are irregularly sized or shaped, buy the next size up and then a few "bed sheet suspenders" or similar and you're good to go

Queen beds are 60x80. Our "queen" in the boat is 57x78. Like others have said, just buy a set of queen-sized sheets and tuck 'em in a bit. That's what we do. When you're sleeping, you won't know!

Or talk to the companies that advertise in the boating magazines that specialize in odd shaped boat mattresses and linens and order from them. But expect to lay out a "boat buck or two".

I have purchased all of my sheets for the last 15 or so years at Tuesday Morning. They always have incredible deals on quality high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets.

He didn't say cheap, he said reasonable. If you have them custom made that is a very reasonable question. Custom is not cheap anywhere.

Does the draft of the Selene 53 pose any problems for cruising on the East Coast? My understanding of the ICW is that there are problems for boats with a draft of the Selene 53. What role did that play in your decision?

Yeah. That's why he needs cheap sheets and blankets.

Makes sense to me.

We also have a Selene 53 in the East Coast. Congrats on the buy! They're great boats.

We found these sheets to fit very well: Sheex Boating Sheet Set With Pillowcases | SHEEX Official Store


TKR: We've been in the ICW on and off from Miami to Savannah. So far no problems.

Would it be reasonable to do the Loop in a Selene 53?

I would not attempt it. Everything I have read indicates the best Great Loop boats are under 36', have a draft of less than 3.5', and have an air draft of 17' or less. Certainly larger boats have done it. You should probably check with the American Great Loop Cruising Association or read this link:

Choosing your Great Loop boat.

If your air draft will fit under the lowest bridge...yes it's reasonable even though boats with lower air drafts and drafts less than 5 feet are more enjoyable to travel in when the tide is out in some places.

Length is less important than other factors best I can tell.

The other twist is some feel it necessary to do the Mississippi, other feel what it adds isn't necessary and would rather add mini loops and just do coastal and Great Lake portions.
