I bought my Cal-39 for $72k this yr and the aft master is more than a queen. I know because I got a standard 3" thick queen pad and it doesn't take up all the room. It made a world of difference and I think I'll upgrade next yr to one of custom dealies. In your price there are lots of boats to chose from so don't start believing otherwise (but I looked at a Hunter 40 and you really pain the price in other spaces for the centerline bunk)

I got a king size "topper" a Wallyworld(1.5" memory foam on top of 2.5" of something else) and trimmed it to fit my vee berth on top of the cushions that are still there. It is by far the best bed I own.

I screwed up when I moved the forward bukhead aft to make space for more anchor chain so the vee berth is a bit shorter than most 5'10". I now find it more comfortable to sleep across the boat than fore and aft. Fine when I'm alone but not so good when the wife is onboard. She usually goes to the quarter berth as soon as I start snoring anyway so I suppose it works out..........m

My wife also suffers from delusions of snoring. This may be a common female ailment.

Plenty of ways to do a custom mattress. From tying springs to multi density foam buildups. I usually recommend an extra firm high density layer of 4" under a soft resilent 2" layer. Gives adequate support with luxurious feel.

Thanks guys for the ideas. Good to know I dont have to sacrifice my back living on a boat. Memory foam, hard foam...I'll remember that.
