Reticulated Foam for Boat Cushions
Reticulated Foam is an advanced type of foam that is commonly used near water. Unlike other types, this foam is unique since it can sieve water. This means that it can remain considerably drier when exposed to liquids. Its ability to do this derives from its mesh-like structure
Many types of foam absorb water, especially those used for seating and sleeping. When foam becomes wet, it’s no longer suitable for use until it dries. Foam that consistently gets wet is also likely to break down at an accelerated rate.
Normally this would be fine as mattresses and indoor cushions aren’t very likely to encounter water. The situation is different though when it comes to boats. You need a specialist foam that is resistant to water.
Buy Reticulated Foam at Foam Direct
Foam Direct is one of the few foam suppliers in the UK that stocks reticulated foam. If you need water-resistant boat cushions, we can manufacture them for you using this specialist foam grade.
Reticulated foam isn’t just used for boat cushions. It’s also often used to create outdoor furniture cushions that are at risk of getting wet. Poolside furniture such as sun loungers and cushions which could get rained on, can benefit from the unique properties of reticulated foam.
Ordering reticulated foam cushions follows the same process as ordering any other type of foam product from us.
Once you’ve selected the shape you require and input your measurements, you can select reticulated foam from the list provided.
Unsure whether reticulated foam is right for you? Why not speak to one of our experts? They can further discuss the benefits of reticulated foam, to help you make an informed decision.
Consider This When Taking Measurements!
We don’t recommend taking measurements from old pieces of foam when replacing your boat cushions. This is because old foam can become worn out and won’t always provide you with accurate measurements.
It is best to measure the old cushion covers to create a template. You can easily enter your required measurements on our online calculator. This will also provide you with an instant quote for your new cushions.

Boat Cushions & Mattresses FAQs
To help you find the best foam for your boat cushions or boat mattress, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions by our customers, below. If you have any other questions or would like advice on ordering foam for your boat, please contact us.
What Type of Foam is Best for Boat Cushions?
Reticulated foam is very popular for making boat cushions. This is a unique type of foam with a wide-open cell structure, that allows water to flow freely through it. Because of its unique structure, reticulated foam is very fast drying. It also helps inhibit the growth of mould and fungus which may arise on regular pieces of wet foam.
Can Regular Foam Be Used to Make Boat Cushions?
Yes. If you would like to order a more traditional upholstery foam for your boat cushions, we can supply you with a range of suitable high density seating foams. Placing a foam cut to size order through our website is simple and we even offer a next working day delivery service. If you need any assistance, our team will be happy to help!
How Thick Should My Boat Foam Be?
The thickness of foam that you order for your boat will depend on the application that you’re ordering for. For example, most boat mattresses measure between 4 and 8 inches, whilst interior seat cushions tend to measure around 4 or 5 inches. Of course, this can vary between boat models and personal preferences. If you need any help deciding on an appropriate thickness for your boat foam, please contact us to speak to one of our experts.
Do You Offer Boat Cushion Covers?
We only supply cut to size foam for boat cushions (as well as Dacron and stockinette, should you require it). You may need to seek the services of a professional upholstery company if you require a cushion recovering service.
