• 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
    Russell & Diane Haughan

  • "Val I have just offered up the new cushions and I thought I would let you know my first reaction. 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)

  • Just to let you know that we have received the cushion in-fill - thank you very much.  It is now in place on the boat. 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
  • 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!
