V Berth Sheets for Comfort and Style

How do you find luxurious, comfortable and perfectly designed linens for a V-berth? Alan Murphy, Jr, vice president of Pioneer Linens Yacht & Estates Division, says it’s just like finding the best linens for any other beds in your home or on your yacht. In other words, buy top quality and let a professional take care of the details. Here’s what Alan has to say:

I have friend with a Sea Ray 360 Sundancer who complained about how his wife never wanted to stay on the boat when he and other couples who had similar models would travel together to various ports of call. He asked me what he could do to make the V-berth just like their bed at home.

I went to the boat and gave it a firsthand look. First off, the stock mattress was only four inches deep. The stock pillows were polyester filled and the sheets were polyester/cotton blend with no mattress pad, purchased from a big box store. It’s no wonder his wife longed for the comfort of her bed at home!

The way we see it at Pioneer Linens Yacht & Estates Division, fine V-berth sheets are not different from the sheets you sleep on at home. The luxurious cotton you choose is the same, the weave you prefer is the same the only difference is how the v-berth sheets are altered to fit your funny shaped mattresses aboard your yacht.

After you’ve worked with a professional to select the linens, the next step is having a qualified vendor come to the boat, measure and cut a template of the V-berth mattress. That’s how you can be sure to get the perfect fit for your sheets, mattress pad and comforter.

Templating a V-berth for sheets includes the depth of the mattress and its configuration.  An experienced tailor who specializes in fine linens then takes the template, cuts and finishes the custom-fit sheets accordingly.

Now getting back to my friends and the marital discord caused by the unappealing V-berth bedding on their boat, here are the basic pointers I gave him:

  • Start by selecting fine quality, Italian made Egyptian cotton sheeting and have it professionally altered to fit your V-shaped mattress. I’ll help you select the linens and recommend an excellent tailor who knows how it’s done.
  • Next, get a thicker mattress pad in order to create a thicker mattress with more loft and firmness.
  • Pick out down pillows that will make you and your wife most comfortable, based on your personal preferences.
  • Add a beautiful down comforter in a duvet to give the bed a lush look and keep you warm when the cabin is cold.
  • Add a few accessories, like decorative pillows and a soft throw, to make it all complete.

I am proud to say my friends now sleep on their boat when they travel because the beds at the marina hotels just aren’t as nice. When their friends — three other couples who had the same boats — saw their magnificent new bedding, they all ordered Pioneer Linens custom V-berth sheets, too!
