Thank you for the superb new upholstery that you made and supplied for my boat. It looks so good that I have to now organise new curtains and new flooring.

Again, many thanks

Glyn and Isobel

“I took the bunks down to the boat today and fitted the new bunks.  Brilliant.  A great fit and a great look.  And then this afternoon we sat on the patio with a couple of bottles of wine and the evening meal in the sun.  But we looked into the Conservatory and decided that the upholstery you had recovered for us last year was utterly excellent.  A top job.  We are so pleased and it is a delight to look at.  To look at the skill is just a pleasure.

Thank you so much for all the work you did for us.”

Roger and Judy

“Hi Val – just to say that everything looks brilliant. Such a good job. We are delighted, thank you very much! Stay safe”

Roy and Sarah

“I can recommend using Val for recovering caravan or boat cushions. We needed some old campervan cushions resized and covered. Val is friendly, knowledgeable and has an excellent choice of materials to choose from. She completes to timescale and the finished product is excellent. Val is also available for after sales advice so the whole experience from start to finish is an absolute pleasure.”

Biddy Shepherd

“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!”

Jon Harvey

“A brief note to say how pleased we are with the berth and cockpit cushions for our Mitchell motor boat. The workmanship is superb, the turnaround was impressive and the price competitive. Who could ask for more?”


“Just to say THANKS for the wonderful job you did on the cushions for our Sadler29 which is transformed. Excellent service, beautiful finish, thoughtful communication, very competitive pricing and easy transportation arrangements. We would be delighted for you to use this as testimonial”

James & Charlotte

“Thank you so so much Valerie. You have done a fabulous job!”

Mrs Mary Hayton

“Thanks Val for lovely cushion covers, they look very nice indeed.”

Mrs Viv Smith

“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.”

Russell & Diane Haughan

“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.”
