Mattress Question

I have never lain on a mattress as comfortable as the one on the Outremer at the 2014 Miami Strictly Sail boat show. Here's a photo of the mattress.

Does anyone know what kind of mattress this is, and who makes it? I may not be able to afford a 5X, but I'm hoping I can at least sleep as well

Re: Mattress Question

I don't know about this matress specifically but we put a memory foam pad in our berth and it made a huge difference. Unbelievable how much better you can sleep on a boat when you have more then the stock "mattress". This is similar to what we have.

Re: Mattress Question

This is interesting...I too need to do something with my existing mattress...It is the organial foam I assume...I was looking into putting a memory foam over the top of it but before I do i was wanting to get some opennions from others that do have it....Its for the "V" here is my question...1. Do i just install a 2" memory foam overlay ? 2. Replace the existing 4" form mattress with same thickness memeory foam one.

Re: Mattress Question

My experience with memory foam is that even the good ones wear out in a year as well as holding bodyheat. A good foam mattress made for boats is double what you'll pay for memory foam but it doesn't hold heat and it'll last 5 years

Re: Mattress Question

I can look tonight - my boat came with one of these wonderful "real" and thick mattresses. They are great! As a live aboard I really appreciate it!

Re: Mattress Question

FYI, Tempurpedic makes a new version of memory foam called "weightless". I hate memory foam because it holds heat and creates a body impression. But this new stuff is great. Doesn't hold as much heat and is fast response, so no body impression.

Back pain gone in two nights after replacing our old top of the line coil spring pillow top. One year later and this weightless mattress is still like new.
