97 355 Bed size question

Postby ErikSKY » May 10th, 2018, 11:01 pm

I am in the process of purchasing a 97 355 Aft Cabin. Is anyone aware of the true dimensions of the aft stateroom bed. Is it an actual queen, or actual double? There is conflicting info online.

Thanks,

Erik

I have a 356 and I'm pretty sure it is a double. Both berths are on the tight side. My feet hang over the edge.

We also have a '97 355
Master is a double that is actually narrower at the foot of the bed
Cosy, but not a true queen at all
It is also not a walkaround which is a minor challenge for the person getting out of the port side of the bed in the middle of the night ;-)
It is still a comfortable cabin for two
All the best

Its not an actual queen or double. It is a custom made mattress. Wider than a double at the stern (head) end and smaller at the bow end (foot), with a very strange angle on the starboard side and almost a full curve at the bow end (foot of the bed). We bought a latex queen and cut to fit. Also, don't get one too tall or you cant open the hanging locker.
