You can select from genuine PostureSense™ memory foam; 100% natural latex, an all-natural foam used in our organic mattresses; or our traditional sailboat mattress foam. For a simple traditional foam boat mattress, we recommend our high-resiliency (HR) EverFlex™ foam if you’re going to spend more than 2–3 nights at a time on this boat mattress. If not, you can get away with our less-expensive (and less dense) EconoFlex™ foam. We offer three firmness options for each of these and generally recommend medium V44 as long as your boat mattress is between 3–5 inches thick. If it’s thicker you should consider our less firm V34, and if it’s less than three inches, you’ll probably want our firmer V54 foam.
Your second boat mattress foam option is our dreamy premium — and organic — latex foam. We offer six firmness options to match your personal sleeping preference from soft to firm. Finally, we offer memory foam boat mattress options as well. However, we always recommend that you put a base layer of polyurethane foam below 1–2 inches of memory foam. Using memory foam boat mattresses by themselves can lead to “bottoming out” where the mattress won’t support the weight of the person lying on it. If you have any questions about how to construct the optimal boat mattress for your vessel, don’t hesitate to contact our customer service team.
