My wife sews and we have a SailRite machine so we might be a bit more equipped than others... we bought a king sized latex mattress from IKEA (latex doesn't absorb moisture as much as memory foam and other foams do) for about $700. She then pulled off the outer covers exposing the several layers of shaped latex inside, cut them down to the shape of our vberth, cut and resewed the covers and put it all back together again. The result is a home type of mattress that's incredibly comfortable (different cushion points for head, midsection, butt, legs and feet) and perfectly fits our berth. It's great having the original heavy duty covers holding the whole thing together.
