How We Pimped our Master Stateroom and Salon - on Leopard48 "Pilar" - EP42

Our Leopard48 has comfortable staterooms, however since we will eventually be sleeping here every night, we decided to expand our master stateroom bed to a REAL King size instead of the Queen size it was. We eliminated the V berth at the foot of the bed and now it is super comfortable! We bought a new "Ultimate" mattress and sheets from Custom Comfort Bedding out of Fort Lauderdale.

If you decide to do the same, note that there is a conduit pipe on the inside hull that must be built around. As an added bonus, we now have a super deep storage addition under the bed deck (kind of hidden).

We also decided to recover our salon cushions so we don't have to sit on that sticky, cold, hot, sticky vinyl. A little sunbrella and we are now much cozier.
