But most of our great reviews are because of the fact that they are specifically made with boats in mind. It doesn’t make sense to try to fit a rectangle sheet on a triangle bed. That leaves you with a lot of extra fabric that has to be nipped and tucked somewhere, and it ends up being a huge inconvenience and source of stress — just to make the bed.
One of our customers, Melody of Saving to Sail, who blogs about living a laptop lifestyle, and how to make money while living on a sailboat, used to struggle with making the bed with standard sheets. She bought a set of our Universal V-Berth Sheets about a year ago and emailed to let us know they are still holding up strong but that mostly she no longer dreads making the bed!
She offered to make a video testimonial to show just how easy it is to make the bed with our v-berth sheets. In fact, she can do it in under a minute, and bragged that she almost has it down to 30 seconds. So without further ado, here you go!
Looks like her actual bed-making time was right at about 40 seconds – awesome!
You can also read another review by Carolyn of The Boat Galley who loves her sheets as well (although she didn’t get the v-berth sheets since her mattress was square). Same concept, though!
The Secret of our V-Berth Sheets Success
What sets our v-berth sheets apart from the competition is not only the fact that they are high-quality sheets but the secret is in the cinch.
Our fitted v-berth sheets don’t just have elastic like most other sheets. They have an additional elastic cord that turns your sheets into sort of a drawstring around your mattress, so you can cinch it up as tight as you want to ensure a nice, tight fit that won’t pop off in the middle of the night as you move.
So there you have it — a customer testimonial for our Universal V-Berth Sheets. Thanks, Melody!
