If you are a new boat owner, this guide will help you find the right type of cushion that you’ll need to prevent both mildew and bacterial growth. While you may believe that it isn’t necessary to replace your regular cushion with, say the moisture-friendly marine foam cushions, it’s actually worth noting that by switching, you will have a much cleaner and safe environment on your boat.

The Secret Behind Boat Cushions

Yacht cushions, boat cushions, specially-formulated cushions, whatever it may be, they all have one thing in common – they prevent mildew and bacterial growth inside. This is something that’s extremely important to watch out for, for both you and your guests’ safety. Mildew growth can trigger allergic reactions to individuals that are sensitive to being around it. In addition to this, mildew growth can spread around your boat. Remember, all it takes is a cold, damp spot for mold to start growing. The trick with these boat cushions is that they have an open cell structure and a formula within it that combats mold growth. The fact that your boat is surrounded by moisture and varying temperatures, you’ll want all the protection that you can get.

If you are the owner of a much larger boat, you may be thinking that you’ll need a specific boat mattress to be safe. However, this has been debated. Many boat owners believe that you can place any mattress on the interior of the boat while other think that mold and mildew can find a place in any area.
