5 Summer Sailing Essentials for Cool & Comfortable Nights on Board

Here at Ship Shape Bedding we love spending the summer out on the water, making the most of the long evenings and soaking up the sun. 

However, we know that with the heat - temperatures can be raised and it's not always smooth sailing. Here's our top 5 products to keep you feeling cool, calm and cruising all summer long! These will ensure your summer on board is always enjoyable, relaxing and comfortable! 


1. DRY-Mat Anti-Condensation Underlay  

undermattressEveryone perspires when they sleep and even more so during the hot summer nights. This humidity seeps through your mattress and when it reaches the solid wood of the bed base turns into condensation, leaving you with a damp mattress which could lead to mould and mildew.  

Keep your beds fresh and clean with our best selling DRY-Mat Anti-Condensation Underlay. This 10mm layer of micro-springs lifts your mattress, creating a breather gap between the bed base which lets air flow freely preventing the build up of condensation and keeping your mattress clean and dry. 

Available in 3 sizes as standard, DRY-Mat is simply cut to shape and placed under your mattress.
