Boat & Yacht
Cushion Upholstery & Furnishings

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

Proudly made-to-measure in BristolOur boat furnishing orders tend to be made from start to finish by one member of staff, 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.

"We are writing regarding the new boat cushions which you made and upholstered for us. It seems too little to say we are delighted with them - we are absolutely over the moon! We were very nervous that we might have made a mistake with the templates, but they are a perfect fit and look really beautiful. Thank you so much for all the care you took with them and when the boat is finished we shall make sure to send more photographs, so you will be able to see how your skill has transformed the whole look of it - we hope you may then be as pleased as we are!"
Tim and Eileen Measures, Nottinghamshire

You can visit us…
or we can work with you at a distance…

By far the best way for us to answer your enquiry and give you prices is for you to visit our Bristol Showroom, open Monday to Saturday, if that's possible for you. This way we are able to explain all the various options open to you and how these effect the overall cost of what you're thinking of having done. We can show you examples of numerous foam types and thousands of fabrics. This is all done in a friendly, no-pressure manner by our staff, who are all non-commission, by the way!

Please note that we don't offer a removal and refitting service for the items on your boat and we don't have the facility to keep your boat here.
So if you can bring all the items to us there's no problem, and if you're not local we can gladly collect all the items by carrier and send them back to you when completed.

We often receive boat items of all shapes and sizes to be recovered!

There are 3 different ways in which we can cover your boat cushions:

1. CONNOISSEUR Specification

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


There is a vast choice including plain, semi-plain, and patterned fabrics in many types of texture, including Chenilles and Flat Weaves, in a myriad of designs and colours.

Your cushions are then buttoned to give the finishing touch. Piping can also be added.

To view our 1,200 CONNOISSEUR fabrics, click here

2. EASY CARE Specification

We strip off your old 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.

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 these 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.

To view our 200 EASY CARE fabrics, click here.

3. PRINTED POLYESTER Specification

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

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

We were pleased to win the contract to supply boat mattresses and cushions for all 10 yachts competing in the 'Clipper Round the World Yacht Race'.

Brand new Boat Cushions…
Of course as well as re-covering existing cushions we can also create brand new cushions using new High Density Foam. For details of this option click here.

If you are looking for cushions that can remain outside on deck in all weathers, we also now offer a special 'Rain or Shine' foam (shown below). This has the benefit that any water finding its way inside the cushion will simply drain through the foam and out the other side.

It's a fair bit more expensive, so we just offer it as an option, and can give you further details if required.

New Boat Foam Cushions and Cushion Refilling

If you are not happy with the comfort of your existing cushions, as well as their appearance, we can make you brand new cushions, using High Density Foam.

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 .


A Stockinette cover helps protect the underside of your outer fabric from the top surface of the foam, while Polyester Wrapping gives a softer, less ‘angular’ look to new foam cushions and is essential if we are then covering your new foam with our Permanent Upholstery.


Old cushions lack support Cushion refilled with our CBSCC high density foam

Our refilling service has helped countless customers whose boat cushions have lost their support but where the fabric is still in good condition and does not need changing. If your cushions are not zipped, we will unpick your cushions, professionally refill them with your chosen foam, re-sew them with a good quality replacement lining and finally refit your buttons. The total cost simply consists of a refilling labour charge and the price of your new foam.

FREE UK Wide Cushion Collection Service
If you are unable to visit us then we can collect your cushions using our FREE UK Wide Cushion Collection Service. Click here for details.

Once refilled your cushions are despatched back to you by carrier, fully transformed and ready for use. Contact us for a no-obligation quotation.

We have also refilled hundreds of domestic furniture cushions for our customers, who have found renewed comfort without buying a new suite. Conversions from ‘feather or fibre to foam’ are also an increasingly popular part of this work, due to the lack of support provided by original fibre or feather cushions. Please contact us for details.

Interior Sprung Boat Cushions

We purposely DON’T offer interior springing as a form of boat cushion filling. This is because of the numerous occasions customers have brought us interior sprung cushions that have ‘collapsed’, sometimes only 18 months after buying a brand new boat! We have successfully refilled these cushions with our CBSCC high density foams, with much praise from the customers involved.

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 cushions and mattresses to give long-term comfort and durability, then we can help!

Please contact us and we will be happy to give friendly expert advice on which foams will suit you best and offer you a no obligation quotation.


This is by far our best selling foam. It is high density 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 and was one of the first specifically developed to help minimise the effects of moisture, so ideal for use in a boat. Most of our customers choose the ‘firm’ version of this foam, although if used 5” or 6” thick the Supreme grade ‘medium’ will give a luxurious but still supportive cushion or mattress.


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 five year guarantee and is available in both ‘firm’ and ‘medium’ versions.


A very economical foam grade that is ideal for padding, armrests, headboards etc.


Our ‘Memory’ foam is not generally used for seating, however, we can make mattresses using a layer of memory foam. Please contact us for details. We offer memory foam overlays / toppers, please click here to go to our dedicated page.

Boat Foam Mattresses

We make made-to-measure mattresses for motorhomes. They can all be made in any of our foam grades and can be shaped if required. We will gladly advise you on the appropriate thickness of any mattress you require and the ways in which it can be covered. 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:

3" MEDIUM & 3" FIRM sandwich mattress 1" MEDIUM & 4" FIRM sandwich mattress

We can make your mattress 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.

Popular Boat Mattress Sizes
You can find more information, as well as prices for some of our more popular mattress sizes, by visiting the mattress section on this site.

Boat Cushion Relining

If the original lining on your boat cushions has worn, torn or become baggy then we can help! We are able to carefully replace your linings with a modern, good quality and hard wearing fabric, complete with a zip. Please contact us for further details and prices.

Boat Curtains & Scatter Cushions

We’ve been making made-to-measure boat curtains for the last 24 years! Over these years we reckon we’ve been asked to make just about every weird and wonderful shape and size curtains you could imagine!

Curtain Fabrics

We offer a wide range of curtain fabrics, all chosen for their quality and ability to be machine washed. Our 100% polyester ‘Venus Contrast’ curtain fabrics are also ‘Black Out’, so they don’t let the light in, and also very mould and mildew resistant. We have plain curtain fabrics, jacquards, faux silks, embossed etc.etc.

Curtain Headings

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 many caravans, especially on the front sloping window. 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 ‘gathered’ pelmets that fit with ‘hook & loop tape’ over your existing boards.

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 hollowfibre inner as well.
