This project won a 2013 MFA Award of Excellence in the interior upholstery category. This older vessel 47-foot Eastbasy1982 needed a new interior, including v-berth and main salon cushions.
The owner liked the look, color and style of the old cushions. We recommended new marine foam and a durable Ultrasuede because he wanted a cream color. Ultrasuede is a great fabric for owners with young children or pets as the cleaning codes are great.
When we met the customer in the midst of winter, we helped him shovel four feet of snow off the boat and climbed in to see the interior.
The tufting style of the cushions and the bolster is very time consuming. This design adds levels of difficulty for measuring, spacing, etc.
The owner and his family are very happy and comfortable onboard. His young daughter likes to play onboard. She named the boat Carousel, like a horse on a carousel becasue all she says she does on the boat is go round and round.
