When upholstering the cushions and furniture in the interior of your boat — i.e. in the cabin or berth of your vessel — you want to make sure you choose a performance-grade interior marine foam for the job. Unlike exterior marine foam, this type of foam is not built for regular contact with water, but is instead designed with a focus on comfort. You can redo the interior of your boat using these high-quality marine-grade foam options plus various high-style fabrics from Sailrite®. We stock a great selection of interior boat foam to ensure that you find the best style for your unique needs. These foams will help provide the right level of comfort while deterring the growth of mold and mildew in your boat’s furniture.
Marine foam comes in a multitude of options, including Medium Density Polyurethane Antimicrobial Foam, Dry Fast Foam and High Denisty Polyurethane Foam. The moisture levels in your cabin will help you determine which type of foam is best for your needs. For example, if your cabin tends to have higher moisture levels — or if you regularly bring in wet equipment — then a moisture-friendly foam such as Dry Fast or antimicrobial polyurethane is best. Dry Fast foam is a top-notch choice because it has an open cell construction that allows water to run through the foam to deter the growth of mildew. Antimicrobial polyurethane, which is the standard foam used by most boat builders, doesn’t drain water but is treated with a biocide agent to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
Looking for a good-quality foam for boat mattresses? Create a comfortable environment in your sleeping berth using high-density polyurethane foam. This comfortable foam can be ordered in thicknesses up to 6 inches and is tough enough for daily, heavy-use applications. This foam is also a great choice for helm seats, patio cushions, pontoon seats, powerboat seats and saloon cushions. If you are unsure which type of marine foam is best-suited for your specific application, make sure to reference our various foam selection guides, especially our guide to Selecting the Right Marine Interior Foam.
