nautica linemattresses for every type of floating vessels

To experience an utter relaxation on your boat or ship and to feel comfortable and cozy at the same time, there are some obligatory “details” which must be consistent, for example the quality of sleeping inside your “sea toy”; thus make the conditions of resting and sleeping on your boat as good as in your own.

The Bernarda Mattresses for all types of floating vessels – a guarantee for a healthy sleep under any condition

A boat/ship mattress is made on a pocket wire core basis, CMHR (combustion modified high resilience) sponge or a thermo – active foam. They are produced in all shapes, cannot burn and contain a very good air exchange capability. The textile materials which are used to produce the bed spreads contain excellent antibacterial characteristics, hence the outstanding reaction against active moisture changes which decrease the possibility of mould or fungi development. The production of these types of mattresses is strictly individual due to many different shapes of mattresses and the situations in which these mattresses are used. Since in many cases the old mattresses are just being replaced by new better ones, every order is carefully studied by our team of experts according to the desires of the customers. Our studies and careful developments are a guarantee for a good healthy sleep and rest, even in the smallest rooms of Your boat/ship.

The mattress protection against moisture: The slat system for vessels

Since boats/ships contain rather small areas for placing beds/mattresses, we often come across situations where mattresses are installed without a quality slat system; in other words – without slats.

When we talk about a quality slat system, we think of a system that meets the standards of two basic characteristics which are required in a boat/ship:

  • Excellent ergonomic characteristics: a good flexibility of slats which allow the mattress to withstand the needed motions for a healthy body position during sleeping,
  • High – standard ethereal quality: the slat construction solutions must utterly allow the air to circulate beneath the mattress which ensures a dry atmosphere. This way we have decreased the danger of accumulating the unwelcome moisture, mould, fungi and stench. The durability of a mattress is extended and the conditions of the further antibacterial function ensured.


The Space-flex system completely satisfies all standards and demands. Its further advantage can be found in its extremely small height which is only 2 cm. That makes it perfect for usage on a boat/ship and in very small spaces. This system is a picture of a quality bed system even when the boat/ship manufacturer did not foresee a slat system usage within the bed system.

The slat system for mattresses is based on the so called Latoflex system, especially designed for boat/ship beds. With the usage of the so called Latoflex element units (lattices made of glulam), which are fastened with specially designed plastic spring flange, the flexibility of slats is increased, thus allowing the so called Latoflex element units to move independently.

Without any need for fastening the units within a bed frame, the circulation of air is frequent, hence creating a healthy hygienic atmosphere.

Since the flange spring units are mutually connected, there is no need to fasten them within a bed frame. The junction between the elements is “soft” and the slats can be easily removed by rolling (in case you need to use the space under the mattress), thus taking up the minimum amount of space.

To achieve the maximum flexibility of various segments and layers, we use as a basis plastic spring elements which create a web with their related linking units. The segmental (dotted) flexibility which is achieved by this system allows the maximum adjustment of a mattress according to any position changes of a human body in order to gain a completely natural relaxed position.
The units are produced in two basic types of rigidity: soft and medium hard. The level of rigidity can be individually increased, according to customer’s wishes, in any desired zone by installing dragging elements within the system.

With a simple combination of these types of element rigidity, it is very easy to determine which zones can be made more rigid than the others.

The basic spring element is 13 x 13 cm in size, designed for the inner surface of slats, and smaller spring elements (13 x 5 cm) are used on curved or asymmetrical edges (these are mostly used in boat/ship beds). The smaller units are used to design and produce the most complicated shapes of slates.

By combining the bigger and smaller spring elements which are installed in the bed basis, it is possible to isolate the openings in the basis which make the elements completely functional with no need to remove the slats while using the storage under the mattress. This system does not occupy a lot of space and there is no need for a special knowledge while installing it to the bed.
