I'll third..

I'll third the Wal*Mart memory foam route! Also you NEED a mattress pad!! A can;t stress enough that a good mattress pad is a MUST!! Sheet's alone DO NOT cut it!!

Buy a good quality king size mattress pad, usually queens are not wide enough but do measure, and then template your v-berth and take the template to a seamstress. They will cut and re-sew the mattress pad and a fitted sheet to your v-berth. I think we paid about $35.00 (on sale Bed Bath & beyond) for a very nice quality mattress pad and $20.00 for sewing. We also had her re-cut and sew the fitted sheet, which is a 400 thread count. Pure COMFORT and under $150.00 for all of it..

It's not our home Tempurpedic but damn close. Also the mattress pad naturally breaths and has "loft" so that body moisture can dry off during the day. No more clamy feeling v-berth.

Oh one last thing. Buy some of those ventilation "square shaped tiles" sold at West Marine, cut them to shape and assemble them to fit under your v-berth cusions for even more air circulation!! Sleeping comfort is a MUST!!
