Custom mattresses are available.
Cost big bucks and you have to send in a paper template in most cases for a quote. Search and you will find lots of different manufactureres of Custom Boat Mattresses.

Therma-Rest makes some really thick (about 2" thick) terry cloth covered self-inflating sleeping pads that might be worth considering

I was told by a friend to visit Galaxy Foam. we bought 4" thick firm for the V berth and 2" for the seat cushions, i sleep better than a baby on this stuff. ever see the space mattress on tv where the chick jumps on the bed without spilling the wine glass? same type of stuff. about $150 for a 4'x8' pad you can cut to shape if desired. comes in several thickneses and firmness. I swear to this stuff!

I now have 5 inches of Tempurpedic foam for all my seat/sleeping cushions. My aft berth is large enough for a twin mattress. A few more inches I could have had a full mattress in there.

We have a double size berth in the aft cabin which has the standard 3" foam mattress. Although my wife and I slept there regularly the first year, it's used mostly by guests now.

We actually prefer the forward cabin, since it has a huge V-berth when the middle insert is in place. I bought a 5" Tempurpedic foam overlay two seasons ago which made an incredible improvement in comfort.

The berth's longest dimensions are 7'-4" long x 7'-10" wide, so I bought a king size pad which, after cutting to size, fits very well with two forward cut-off pieces joined to the aft corners. Since the bed is always left intact, storage wasn't an issue.

How does Tempurpedic foam do in the cold? I've heard it tends to freeze.

Couldn't tell you, since the foam overlay goes home during winter layup - mattresses stay on the boat. Plus, we have an Espar central forced warm air, diesel heating system for cold season comfort.

I we allowed the boat interiors to freeze while fully outfitted, there would be more serious issues to deal with then frozen Tempurpedic foam .
