V-Berths are custom beds made for an unique sleeping environment.
Handcraft Mattress Company has developed a range of custom solutions for this sleeping area drawn from many years of experience. We offer a perfect fit for any V-Berth configuration ranging from a 1-Piece to a 3-Piece design. Our patented, custom hinge-fold option eliminates the need for multi-piece mattresses, while offering easy access to storage and equipment area below mattress. And, thanks to their thick, quilted covers that eliminate seams and crevices, our V-Berth mattresses also provide unparalleled sleeping comfort. All our V-Berth mattresses conveniently fold for easy transportation and installation on your boat.
