Sea Swag Custom Boat BeddingWhen Linda McErlain and Erica Robertson purchased Anchor’s Away Custom Boat Bedding and re-branded as Sea Swag Custom Boat Bedding, they knew that one of their first priorities would be to develop a sheet solution for boats that takes out some of the complexity of the custom design process.

“We love working with our clients to create that perfect set of custom sheets that are made just for their boat,” says Linda “but at the same time we were also aware that there are a lot of boaters out there that just want to order a set of sheets and have them delivered within a few days instead of a few weeks”. Thus began the quest to design the Sea Swag Universal Sheet.

“Our Sea Swag Universal Sheet is designed to fit both the traditional sailboat V Berth, and the “Island” shaped berth found on many sailboats and powerboats”, Erica reports. “With just a couple of quick measurements you can determine the right size for your berth, and the sheets can be ordered online at www.customboatbedding.com. We ship our orders out within 1 to 2 weeks to anywhere in North America, and package them in these gorgeous custom bags that are amazing for storing your sheets on or off the boat”.

The sets are available in Percale or 500 Thread count Egyptian Cotton Sateen, and the fitted sheet is finished with a unique double elastic that keeps your sheets in place and helps simplify that tricky process of making your berth.

“We are so excited to bring this new product to the North American marketplace”, Linda says. “We are really proud of our design and are so happy that we have such a great offering for the boating community.”
