Best Mattress

Looking for best mattress for marine environment. Don't need anything custom as it will fit into our current queen bed pedestal. Currently has a tempurpedic but after 15 years we think its time to change it out. Suggestions appreciated!

I think you are really lucky if a stock size queen mattress will fit in your boat. I wish my last boat, present boat, and a RV had a stock size. Just for the fun of it, measure your old one before you go shopping.

Sorry for the noob question, but is doing actual measurements the only way to decode "queen bed" in YachtWorld.com listings?

Yes. Most listed sizes of beds in boats are approximations to give land-folks something to compare. Our "queen" walk around in our GB is actually somewhere between a land-based full and a queen...

Buy a new Tumpurpedic. If you liked it, it would be too bad to go something else that didn't work for you.

i bought a 5 inch thick medium density foam mattress from a foam shop, a Nova foam top pad from Costo and a cloth matterss cover sheet. Total cost about $500.00 CAD for queen size and I'm in love with it.

Got our memory foam with a nice pillow top at Costco.
Our boat Queen is slightly smaller than a normal Queen so I cut the mattress down with an electric carving knife.

At the moment we were ready to replace our mattress, the in-laws downsized and a guest bedroom mattress in the right size appeared to have no home. It is (likely) an expensive foam mattress, about 8" thick and is the most comfortable one we have ever owned. Go to the foam shop and test lay on what they have to offer. You will be surprised how nice they can be, unless, of course, if you sweat too much.

It has been said by many people that a Tempurpedic is hot. We have one at home and we love it but we have air conditioning at home so the possible "hot" effect is countered by the air conditioning.


Since your mattress is a standard size (ours isn't), It seems pretty simple to shop mattress stores until you find one you like.

We have two queens with hinge folds from this company. Really comfortable and well fit.

A 2nd vote for Handcraft Mattress- we had some challenges with the fit ( they mis-measured) but in the end are very pleased with the mattress.
