BOAT, YACHT & NARROWBOAT Cushion Upholstery & Furnishings

If you own a boat, yacht or narrowboat and you're thinking of re-vamping the interior, protecting the furnishings in a newer boat, or perhaps improving your comfort when sleeping, then we can certainly help!

All of our boat and yacht upholstery services are in-house in our Bristol Factory

Our boat & yacht upholstery orders tend to be made from start to finish by one member of our experienced team, as we find this gives them an interest in seeing the finished product as well as engendering a real sense of pride in the job.

There are 3 different ways in which we can re-upholster or cover your Yacht, Boat or Narrowboat Cushions:


1. CONNOISSEUR Specification

We strip off your old boat cushion fabric (if recovering existing cushions), or supply new high density foam, add Dacron Wadding to the foam and then permanently upholster your cushions in your choice of over 1,200 on-going, non-clearance upholstery fabrics.

AFTER

There is a vast choice available (over 1,200 fabrics, all at the same cost) including plain, semi-plain, and patterned fabrics in many types and textures, including Chenilles, Flat Weaves and Crushed Velvets, in a myriad of designs and colours.

Your boat, yacht or narrowboat cushions are then normally buttoned to give the finishing touch. ‘Piping’ and ‘Quilting’ can also be added if you wish at extra cost.

2. EASY CARE Specification

We strip off your old boat/yacht/narrowboat cushion fabric (if recovering existing cushions), or supply new high density foam, add Dacron Wadding to the foam and then cover your cushions in a range of  OVER 200 MACHINE WASHABLE Upholstery Fabrics.

These include plain and semi-plain Textured Weaves, Faux Linens, Crushed Velvets etc, in a wide range of colours.

Our 'Easy Care' covers include a zip so they can be easily removed

• We fit a full-length zip, out of sight, to enable you to easily remove the covers whenever you wish.

Most customers don't have their new boat Easy Care cushions buttoned as they want to easily remove and refit their covers after washing. However, buttons can be fitted at extra cost if you wish.

3. PRINTED POLYESTER Specification

We make you made-to-measure covers to fit over the top of your existing cushion fabric (if you have existing cushions), or can also supply new high density foam.

This option is ideal if you have children, dogs, or even both to cope with!


Our printed polyester seat covers are pet friendly and can be easily removed and cleaned
Our hard-wearing polyester seat covers will stand up to wear and tear caused by children and pets
We can cut and make new foam cushions and mattresses to fit the shape of a boats hull

You have a choice of 30 Printed 100% Polyester Machine Washable fabrics. Although lighter weight than our upholstery fabrics, they are still hard wearing.

FABRIC SELECTOR

The best way of finding out what we can do for you and the associated costs, is to email us images of your boat or yacht interior and an idea of what you are thinking having done. Our experienced and friendly staff can then explain by email or phone all the various cushion options open to you and how these effect the overall cost of what you're thinking of having done.

This is all done in a friendly, no-pressure manner by our staff, who are all non-commission, by the way!

If you decide to place an order with us, we can book a future 'slot' for you in our production schedule. Rather than have your upholstery here longer than necessary, we can collect it from you, or you can drop it off to us, nearer the time that we are about to start work on your items.

IMPORTANT: Please note that we don't offer a removal and refitting service for the items on your boat, yacht or narrowboat and we don't have the facility to keep your boat here.

We purposely don’t offer a ‘Done in a Day’ service. We have always believed, over the 33 years we’ve been doing this work, that we should give each order all the time it deserves and therefore we give our experienced staff many days, rather than hours, to complete the job to the highest possible standard.

New BOAT/YACHT/narrowboat Foam Cushions & MATTRESSES

If you are NOT happy with the comfort of your existing cushions, as well as their appearance, we can make you brand new cushions or mattresses, using CBSCC High Quality Foam.


OUR BOAT FOAM OPTIONS

As well as cutting foam to any shape you require, we also have various finishing options that you may wish to consider. These include 'bullnosed', 'rolled front' and 'keyhole profile' foam cushions (as shown below). All of these options can dramatically alter the finished appearance of your boat cushions. We will be glad to give friendly 'no pressure' advice on any of these aspects.

Dacron Wrapping gives a softer, less 'angular' look to new boat foam cushions and is essential if we are then covering your new foam with our Connoisseur Upholstery. Stockinette undercovers help protect the underside of your outer fabric and help give a smooth un-creased finish.

OUR FOAM GRADES (All Fire Retardant)

We pride ourselves on supplying exactly the right foam to suit each customer's individual requirements. Cheap, poor quality foam is available anywhere, but if you want your new foam boat or yacht cushions and mattresses to give long-term comfort and durability, then we can help!

Choosing your foam…

This is a crucially important decision for any boat owner. We have 33 year’s experience in creating narrowboat, yacht and boat cushions so we’ll be happy to give you friendly, expert advice on which foams will suit you best and offer you a no obligation quotation.

THE FACTS ABOUT FOAM

Contrary to what you may think, and what is sometimes written elsewhere, the QUALITY of foam and its FIRMNESS are two completely separate aspects.

The QUALITY of the foam is down to its density, and determines how long it will last, keep its support and shape and it will of course have a bearing on its cost.

The FIRMNESS on the other hand has nothing to do with Quality, it’s simply a matter of personal preference, i.e. we have various degrees of Firmness, in each Quality.

BUYER BEWARE! There are over 30 different foam qualities made in the UK today… so it would be very easy for an unscrupulous company to supply a customer something described as a “good, firm foam”, but was actually just a poor quality foam in a hard firmness… something the customer wouldn’t find out until a few months down the line!


Experience shows!

We have many year’s experience in advising customers regarding the most suitable foam for them and their particular circumstances. Considering this is all done over the phone or by email, we are very used to asking the correct questions, to give you the best advice when it comes to foam choices.

The foam grades we offer have been proven over a very long period and have given many hundreds of our customers excellent comfort… which lasts!

CBSCC SUPREME GRADE

This is our best quality foam. It is our highest density grade and is the 'Rolls Royce' of all the foams we offer. It has a long life expectancy and a seven year guarantee.  It is suitable for both sitting and sleeping on and was one of the first specifically developed to help minimise the effects of moisture, so ideal for use in a boat or yacht. Within this grade there are various firmness options available.

CBSCC COMFORT EXTRA GRADE

This is an excellent high density foam that gives good comfort and durability without going to the slightly higher cost of our 'Supreme' grade. It has a long life expectancy and a five year guarantee and is available in various degrees of firmness.

FOAM COMBINATIONS

Although not normally necessary, if you wish you can have your new cushions and mattresses made in a combination of firmness versions… we can even make you ‘His and Hers’ mattresses if required!

INTERIOR SPRUNG CUSHIONS

We purposely DON'T offer interior springing as a form of boat or yacht cushion filling. This is because of the numerous occasions customers have brought us interior sprung cushions that have 'collapsed'. We have successfully refilled these cushions with our CBSCC high quality foams, with much praise from the customers involved.


FREE UK WIDE CUSHION COLLECTION SERVICE

If you are unable to drop your items off to us, then we can collect your cushions using our FREE UK Wide Cushion Collection Service. Click here or see below for details.




Boat/Yacht Mattresses

The original mattresses supplied with boats often leave a lot to be desired with regards to comfort, especially after a few years use. If you have this problem, we’re fully geared up to help you!


We offer excellent quality fire retardant foam mattresses which give a high standard of comfort, usually far superior to your average sprung mattress. They offer good durability, are non-allergenic and do not cause perspiration.

CLICK HERE for Foam Facts.

Practicality

All of our boat and yacht mattresses come complete with a made-to-measure zip-off machine washable Polycotton cover, or alternatively you can specify a waterproof or moisture resistant cover if you prefer.

Odd Sizes & Shapes

As all of our yacht, boat and narrowboat mattresses are made in-house, non-standard sizes and shapes like ‘cut off corners’ or curved ends cause us absolutely no problem.

Mattress Foam Grades

We offer replacement boat mattresses in 3 different foam grades…


CBSCC SUPREME GRADE

This is our best quality foam. It is our highest density grade and is the 'Rolls Royce' of all the foams we offer. It has a long life expectancy and a seven year guarantee. It is suitable for both sitting and sleeping on and was one of the first specifically developed to help minimise the effects of moisture, so ideal for use in a boat or yacht. Within this grade there are various firmness options available.

CBSCC COMFORT EXTRA GRADE

This is an excellent high density foam that gives good comfort and durability without going to the slightly higher cost of our 'Supreme' grade. It has a long life expectancy and a five year guarantee and is available in various degrees of firmness.

CBSCC PARK GRADE

We have sold this foam mattress grade successfully for many years, and although only available in a 'medium' version, we have found it suits the vast majority of customer's comfort requirements very well indeed. This grade is not suited to use as cushions but is ideal for replacement mattresses in Static Holiday Caravans, Boats, Horseboxes and Motorhomes etc. It obviously does not have the same life expectancy as our other foam grades but it does offer a very good cost saving alternative.

Combination Mattresses

As well as supplying mattresses made from a single type of foam, we also offer ‘combination’ mattresses made from different firmness foams bonded together. Two popular ‘combinations’ are shown below:


Our combination mattresses are made by combining different foam densities in layers
3" MEDIUM & 3" FIRM sandwich mattress
This combination foam mattress has a firm foam base combined with a medium density foam top layer
1" MEDIUM & 4" FIRM sandwich mattress

We can make your boat, yacht or narrowboat mattresses any thickness you wish. Curved, angled and chamfered foam mattresses are not a problem for us! Please contact us for advice and a no-obligation quotation.

Boat, narrowboat & YACHT Cushion Refilling

Our Professional Cushion Refilling service has helped countless customers whose boat, narrowboat or yacht cushions have lost their support, but where the fabric is still in good condition and does not need changing.

We can help you regardless of whether your boat or yacht cushions are zipped. Even if they are not zipped, we will unpick your cushions, professionally refill them with your chosen foam, re-sew them with a good quality replacement lining, this time made from ‘Cotton Twill’ and we also fit a full length zip in case you need to remove your covers in the future. Finally we refit your buttons. 

The total cost simply consists of a refilling labour charge and the price of your new foam.

Boat, YACHT & Narrowboat Cushion Re-Lining



Over time cushion linings become worn and tear easily
New foam seat cushion upholstery and linings are made by skilled in-house staff at our Bristol premises.
We fit new zipped cushion linings to protect the foam cushion bases for years to come

If you have cushion linings that are worn or torn… we can help!

The original linings are often made using a cheap man made ‘felt’ kind of material that after a while starts to deteriorate. To solve this we can unpick your cushions and re-sew them with a good quality replacement lining, this time made from ‘Cotton Twill’ and we also fit a full length zip in case you need to remove your covers in the future. Finally we refit your buttons.

Boat/Yacht/Narrowboat Curtains

We've been making made-to-measure boat, yacht and narrowboat curtains for the last 33 years!

Over this time, we reckon we've been asked to make just about every weird and wonderful shape and size curtains you could imagine!


To view our full range of over 4,000 searchable Fabrics, FOR MOTORHOMES, CARAVANS , BOATS & HORSEBOXES, click below to go to our unique…

FABRIC SELECTOR
Debbie, our dedicated samples lady, will pick and supply samples of any fabrics, you are intersted in, and send them by post.

We have hundreds of curtain fabrics to choose from… and we can post you free fabric samples.

CURTAIN FABRICS

We offer a wide range of over 250 curtain fabrics, all chosen for their quality and suitability. Some are also 'Black Out', so they don't let the light in, and are also mould and mildew resistant.

We have plain and semi-plain curtain fabrics in a range of textures and a myriad of colours. Many of our fabrics also have the practicality of being machine washable.


CURTAIN HEADINGS


We can make and supply new curtains with a traditional 'rufflette' heading.
RUFFLETTE Heading
If required we can fiit a 'popper tape' heading to new curtains.
POPPER TAPE Heading
New curtains can easily be made with a 'tunnel' heading to hang on curtain wire.
TUNNEL Heading

As regards headings, we are able to make your new curtains using traditional 'rufflette' type curtain tape or, if required, the 'plastic popper' tape found in some boats. If required we can also make 'eyelet' curtains in any of our fabrics.

CURTAIN LININGS

We'll of course happily make your new curtains either lined or unlined. Assuming you'd like them lined, we would normally use our standard Polycotton ivory coloured lining. However, if you would prefer a 100% Polyester lining (more mould resistant), or a 'blackout' lining, then we'll be happy to oblige!

CURTAIN TIE-BACKS

If you'd like matching tie-backs then these can be made in any of our fabrics and are usually fastened with press studs. If you would prefer 'hook & loop tape' or rings then that's no problem.

CURTAIN PELMETS

If your boat has existing pelmets then of course these can be changed when we make your curtains. If they are 'board' pelmets at present then we can strip off the old fabric and recover them in the fabric of your choice. Alternatively, we can make simple pelmets that fit with 'hook & loop tape' over your existing boards.

CURTAIN PRICES

To obtain a free no obligation Quotation for our made-to-measure curtains, please just let us have the approximate sizes of the curtains you require. To give us the information using our Contact Form, please click here.

SCATTER CUSHIONS

Scatter cushions can be made in ANY of our fabrics, from either our Curtain Fabric or Upholstery fabric selection. We can of course make them any size you wish and we can happily supply just the covers or the hollow fibre inners as well.


Porthole Bungs

We are able to make made-to-measure boat/narrowboat ‘Porthole Bungs’

These are made to fit snugly inside your boat's portholes to keep out light and act as added insulation. They can be made in a variety of fabrics and colours to suit whatever boat colour scheme you have.
