About Marine Upholstery

At Marine Upholstery we aspire to turn old to new, for a much cheaper price, we are an interior design company meaning we turn an aged tired seating arear within a boat, caravan or campervan, to a new luxury bespoke seating arear for you to socialise. We are able to take a boat seating area that’s been seasoned and worn down and we use our outstanding upholstery skills to refurbish the seating area to look brand-new.

This doesn’t just apply to people who own a boat or caravan this applies to people who own a nice seating area and wish to get new upholstery cushions for their seating area. However, this also applies to business men/women as if you purchased a beaten but boat, but your intentions are to clean it up and sell it on with a good profit margin, then re upholstery is a really cheap way to up the value of a boat or caravan still with lost of room to make a good profit. In addition, we also can make extra scatter cushions to match your upholstery and the size of the cushions can vary to small or large marvellous sized cushions.

Furthermore, we also recover dining room chairs, which could match your new seating area and cushions! We also make curtains; our curtains can be lined with a blackout lining to provide darkness to your room. We are also available to flatpack too. It doesn’t stop there though, Marine will come to measure up and template a job up to a 50-mile radius from her location and she will email you a quote within 24 hours, once you have selected your material, buttons and all the specifics, Marnie will be able to make your new upholstery from her own premises.

When choosing your fabric they are various types of fabric for example; aries, cashmir, classic, evoke, furnisoft PU, fusion, gemini, juno and the list goes on, but you have more of a variety than you do when buying the caravan or boat, you can add great value to your boat or caravan, however we understand that not every person is looking to add value to their boat or caravan and some simply wish to make their family holiday home last longer but still feel like a holiday and that’s what we are here for. We can transform a seasoned caravan to feel like a new holiday home for you and your loved ones to enjoy.

Cushions are nicely made and the interior is transformed but what really struck me is the fit which is superb, there is no other word for it. So much better than the manufacturers original. Very happy indeed." Regards Ken D (08/02/2019)

  • We have a 1979 Dolphin 31 sailing Yacht which we have been upgrading and renovating
    The contribution that Val has made to this process has been invaluable , the interior has gone from looking very tired to something we are very proud of and has taken years off the boat
    When we first saw the cushions they had something which is very rare these days a "WOW" factor
    To summarise we would heartily recommend Val who provides a very professional and friendly service all at a very reasonable cost
    Thanks again Val
    Best Wishes

  • Last week, I took delivery of my new upholstery for the saloon, chart table seat and a cover to go over my hanging locker.

    I used 'Marine Upholstery By Val', based in Clacton but will travel to most east coast marinas I believe.

    I was very impressed with the information, advice and communication prior to order being placed and am absolutely thrilled with the appearance, comfort and standard of craftsmanship now that the items have arrived. The cost was very reasonable indeed and I'll be sure to use Val for any future upholstery work. She is able to do boats, campers and probably everything in between!

    Can't recommend highly enough!

    I have no link to the company, just a very very happy customer!

We are thoroughly delighted with the work you have done for us and can't praise you enough for your customer treatment and expertise in the work you do. We shall definitely recommend you to anyone who might be looking to have some upholstery done in the near future. We are totally satisfied with everything now.  Thank you again for such wonderful work. Best wishes
  • Just a note to say we are very pleased with the settees. I'm really pleased with the seats it's greatly improved the overall appearance. Thanks for your excellent service and attention to detail. Kind regards
