We can reupholster any type of seating or soft furnishings in your boat, from creating new covers on existing cushions, to new boxed cushions, fixed or loose upholstery. Each piece is carefully patterned to your existing covers or we can create brand new patterns if you are going to have new cushions. The material is marked with chalk and cut by hand, sewn together with any piping and zips as required, all by the same upholsterer. Once the cover is complete we carefully fit your new covers onto your existing cushions or onto new foams or boards as required. The end result is an absolutely stunning boat interior ready for years to come!
Choose a two-tone vinyl design or a bright colour for a stand out design on your boat seating, or opt for similar to simply freshen your boat up. We have experience at working on many different types of boat seating, and can add or remove detailing such as quilted and fluted designs. To prevent water seeping through the seams, we would recommend embossed vinyl for a stunning finish that will last. Perhaps even a contrasting colour piping will add interest to your boat seat. Whatever your need, here at South West Upholstery we have a team of highly skilled upholsterers who would be happy to help.
If your boat is being completely gutted and/or the design changed, you will most likely need completely new upholstery and soft furnishings.
This is something we regularly do and are happy to work from templates, drawings or boards – either you can supply the board or we can take care of that part in-house. Brand new foam is selected by comfort level by you using the foam samples we have in store. Once selected, these are carefully cut and shaped, ready to be upholstered. Once upholstered in the fabric, leather or vinyl of your choice, your order is complete and can be collected, delivered, or couriered to you wherever you are in the UK.
Replacement foam for your cushions, bedding, or seating in your boat can help to bring a new lease of life to sagging, uncomfortable items. Replacing your cushion inners and fillings as part of your boat upholstery is a fantastic way to add comfort and create a pristine finish. Either pop in with one of your cushions or provide us with measurements for a written quotation. Alternatively, if you live further afield you can request a Cushion Pack, which can be sent anywhere in the UK for us to collect your cushions. Find out more on our Replacement Cushion Inners page.
We create mattresses to order, so no matter the shape or size of your boat we can provide a suitable replacement mattresses or a brand new mattress if required. We work with you to make a mattress for your boat that matches your desired comfort level, whether that is firm and supportive or with a memory foam topper. Your mattress will be made to measure and can be made to fit a certain shape or size – if there are any unusual curves or cut-outs, this is no problem. All mattresses come with stockinette as standard as this helps to reduce the friction between the cover and the foam.
The mattress can then be upholstered in calico or the material of your choice for an elegant finish, or we simply supply you with the foam. Find out more about the options available to you on our Mattresses page.
We can professionally repair any broken or loose stitching on items of upholstery in your boat. If you require a large repair such as a damaged panel or faded leather, the best practice is to replace that section with fresh materials for a sound, lasting repair. We will work with you to obtain a close match to any new materials required, or perhaps a contrasting fabric if so desired.
We can replace and refill tired, droopy, lumpy cushions of any shape and size to leave you sitting perfectly once more. This can be done in a wide range of fillings to include; luxurious foam cut to size with added Dacron and stockinette, feather and down cushions or hollow fibre in a range of comfort levels. This is a great option if your upholstery is in good order, and can improve the look and feel of your cushions instantly.
We will provide you with a fixed price to professionally repair your boat upholstery based on any information and pictures you provide us and are pleased to work with you regardless of where you are based in the UK.
From small speed boats, to large house boats and yachts, we have worked with all sizes and types of boats. If you require upholstery for indoor or outdoor seating, we have arrange of materials suitable to use. A number of these have been developed for yachts and cruise liners, and as such are prepared for use in saltwater environments, which can sometimes wreak havoc on fabrics. Alternatively, choose from one of our fabric ranges suitable for outdoor cushions and opt for a reticulated foam for outdoor use, which allows water to drain through, meaning you can wave goodbye to mouldy cushions.
