    We’re specialists in narrowboat mattresses

    The rise in popularity of narrowboats leaves a lot of owners wondering how to source replacement narrowboat mattresses. Comfort on-board is a necessity, and our memory foam narrowboat mattresses help you get great nights sleep you deserve.

    As specialists we understand the fundamentals of comfort, and our memory foam and ComfiCel® technology helps make this possible. We’re under no illusion that modern high quality foam offers vast improvements over a traditional sprung mattress. Traditional springs tend to have a shorter lifespan than modern high quality foam, meaning our foam narrow and canal boat mattress not only provide added comfort, but a longer lifespan.

    Support, durability and pressure relief should always be the key factors when deciding on a new mattress for your narrowboat; memory foam mattresses are designed with layers to assist the body to contour with the surface.
