Beneteau Sailboat Settee
You're not going to find a more striking example of new upholstery transforming a run-of-the-mill salon sette into something extraordinary.
Compare the original starboard settee from a 42 foot Beneteau Sailboat (insert in large picture below) to the new one. Look closer and you'll discover subtle design improvements, beginning with the seat decks.
The original seat decks were manufactured the standard way, with flat polyurethane foam. Instead of doing it that way, we built a sturdy foam ridge along the lip. This smartly upholstered foam ridge not only cups an individual snugly into the seat, it lifts their legs a couple of inches, reducing lumbar strain. The back cushions are either contoured or angle-cut for optimum confort.

Notch For Armrest
Support Bar Notch
Rather than snap fasteners, we used velcro. Velcro allows more flexibility in cushion placement. Notches in the cushions to accommodate an arm rest and a mast cable bar are engineered to fit like a glove.
As always, we use only the finest marine-grade foams and fabrics. For this settee, the boat owner selected striking Mediterreanean colors from Sunbrella's marine fabric collection.
The new settee is snug, looks great, and fits the salon perfectly. And thanks to our design improvements and craftsmanship, it'll last for years.
Using Design To Fight Mold & Mildew
Seattle's damp climate encourages the growth of mold and mildew. When you factor in all the nooks and crannies found aboard boats, controlling mold can be real challenge. And as mentioned in the section below on Pink Stain, mold is not only unsightly and destructive, it can be a health hazard.
A dry environment is the best way to prevent nasty mold and mildew. But, this is the Pacific Northwest. Good luck keeping things dry.
Mold & Mildew Collect In Seams
Redesigning Cushion Cover
Sleek & Sanitary
Another approach is almost as effective; eliminate places where mold spores and grime collect, such as deep seams in certain types of boat cushions (above left). Instead of simply recovering these moldy tri-panel cushions, we redesigned them. By removing most of the seams, the freshly upholstered cushions not only look sleek, they now resist mold and mildew.
If you're considering new boat carpeting or marine flooring, you might want to check-out a new product called Infinity Luxury Woven Vinyl®. This stuff is truly amazing. It's not only beautiful, soft and flexible, but extremely durable. It features a unique, heavy-traffic rated backing system ideal for indoor and outdoor use.
This fabric is UV stable so it resists fading. Antimicrobial technology prevents bacterial growth. Soil and stains are easily cleaned reducing the long term maintenance expense compared to other floor covering options. We've posted pics of the current fabric collection below and we have samples at the shop. Here's a link to the manufacturer's website. Definitely worth looking into as a better alternative to marine carpeting.

Pink Stain Is Dangerous
Pink Stain On Boat Cushion
Pink stain or "pink mold" is a common problem faced by Northwest boaters. The micro-organism that causes the slimey pink film commonly found on shower curtains and boat cushions is actually not a fungal growth, but an airborne bacterium -- Serratia Marcescens.
This stubborn "pink slime" bacteria colonizes moist environments such as bathrooms and boats. It's also a problem in medical facilities where it causes a number of hospital acquired infections. In brief, pink stain is not only ugly, it's dangerous.
We can help. When fabricating boat seats or cushions, the marine upholstery experts at Mac's Upholstery take specific preventative measures designed to discourage pink stain from contaminating your boat upholstery and seats.
If this nasty bacteria ever does appear on your boat cushions, you'll have to keep them dry and disinfect on a regular basis. Reupholstering the cushions the proper way may be the most practical, long term solution.
