Getting a good night’s sleep is an important part of enjoying your time on the water. Boat manufacturers often include very basic foam cushions that make it impossible to get comfortable. If you plan on spending many nights on your Sea Ray, getting a proper mattress for your stateroom is one of the best upgrades you can make.
Common Types and Sizes of Sea Ray Boat Mattresses
Sea Ray boat designs include several different berth options depending on the model and features of your boat. Since each vessel is slightly different, it’s important to measure your berth carefully. In general, you will find that Sea Ray mattresses come in three different shapes.
A common type of marine mattress found on Sundancers is a modified full or queen-sized berth. Depending on the location of the bunk and the boat design, the cushion may have trimmed corners or even tapered sides. Midship berths tend to have more traditional sized mattresses while mattresses located in the v-berth area tend to have more custom designed edges.
Sundancers above 35 feet usually feature an island berth in the forward stateroom. This Sea Ray mattress is cut on two corners to fit into the bow’s shape and lies along the centerline of the boat, allowing access from both sides.
What Type of Mattress is Right for My Boat?
Many boats, including Sea Rays, come with simple cushions in their bunks that no one would want to sleep on. High-end boat manufacturers provide custom built innerspring mattresses, but these are generally too costly, heavy and are extremely difficult to get in and out of the boat for replacement and cleanings. Foam mattresses offer excellent comfort and an excellent value. They are shipped rolled and compressed, so they are easy to get into the boat and put into place.
Marine mattresses should also be hard wearing and long lasting. Higher quality products will hold up better in the rigorous marine environment and will last longer through multiple cleanings and continuous use.
How Do I Find My Mattress Dimensions?
Since each bunk area in your Sea Ray is custom designed, your marine mattress will need to be as well. Start by measuring the inside of the frame in which the mattress will sit (round your measurements down to the nearest lower inch). For v-berth and cut corner shapes, measure all widths and lengths.
