    Hi. While this isn't my husband's first boat, it is mine...and I need some help finding out where I can find sheets for our 340 Sundancer. Stupid question, I'm sure. But I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks.

    You could also order custom sheets.

    There isn't any advice to give , nothing fits a boat bed ever.... Why do they make triangle beds anyways .... Just use a king size sheet tuck it under and try NOT to wrestle the mattress too hard ok .... Congrats on your new to you boat , it's awesome

    Hi Maria, first welcome aboard to CSR, nice to see another lady on here and don't be a stranger:) You will find that the help and info from people on here is just amazing! Basically, unless you want to have custom sheets made, like others have said there is nothing really that works A1. I use king size sheets and tuck the bottom one that is a fitted sheet under the mattress all around and use the flat one on top. We also have a memory foam topper on it which came from Sam's Club and we cut it to fit the mattress which makes it much more comfortable. Good luck with the boat...good choice!!!

    Thanks so much for the advice. People at the marina were saying queen or kings work. I'll head out tomorrow to get something. We take possession Friday....just in time for the weekend. We were at it today, testing our German Shepherd to see how he'll do on it, and thankfully he got on it ok! He'll get used to it...and hopefully, I will too.

    First of all, welcome aboard!
    Same suggestion, king or queen sheets and tuck the excess under the mattress. Or else, order fitted sheets.

    First, welcome aboard! Second, we histology sheets off of the boat and used them for a template, bought new sheets, cut to size Nd sewed the edges. You can probably take them to a local seamstress rather than a marine outfitter if you don't sew.

    Queen sheets work fine on the 280DA aft mattress.
