- Queen, Customer or Universal V Berth fitted sheets have both elastic and a durable, elastic cord sewn into the entire bottom of the sheet that is then cinched together with two cord locks. This assures the fitted sheet fits snugly onto any boat cushion.
- Engineering formulas and calculations are used to determine the fit for difficult angled cushion designs. Regular Universal and X Large Universal V Berth fitted sheets are then made over sized to be sure the sheet will fit perfectly.
- Top sheets on V Berth Sheet Sets are also modified to fit the angles of the boat cushions to avoid having excess fabric that is difficult to tuck into small V Berth boat spaces.
- Made from 100% Egyptian Cotton 300 Thread Count Sheet Fabric. No polyester, pima or microfiber.
- Egyptian cotton is finer and has longer threads than Pima, producing an extremely soft supple weave.
- Made with sateen fibers that are woven to create a silky smooth surface with a luminous sheen with a beautiful luster and drape.
- Sateen is usually thicker and more tightly woven than percale fabric.
The owner of a new company, Sailboat Interiors, began working on making boat sheets for her new Catalina 36. As many avid sailors do, they had purchased a new sailboat before selling their previous sailboat to avoid the risk of missing a sailing season. Having V Berth cushions for both a Catalina 30 and Catalina 36, she had the idea to create a universal fitted sheet product. Designing the product proved to be challenging with all of the varying angles depending on the width or length of the particular V Berth. She enlisted her husband, a principle engineer, to design correct formulas and calculations to perfect the design and to then also be able to design custom sheets accurately for any sized boat cushion.
