The hammock is often the only way to chill out undisturbed on boats. But is it really comfortable?
A hammock creates the desired relaxation area. Finally alone - nothing against the others, but on a yacht you get very close - and finally in the sailing sky. It feels like floating. Well - once wet, a cotton hammock does not dry quickly. If at all. And where and how do you fasten it?
CrazyChair has developed a hammock that can do (almost) everything for all those who want to hang out relaxed on the boat: the CrazyChair CLIPPER. It always stays dry - no matter if it is immersed in salt water or gets a downpour. This is ensured by the UV-resistant mesh fabric, which lasts for years and provides pleasant ventilation even at high temperatures. She is only 1.5 kilos light and compactly packed, so she can easily be taken on charter ships. The lightweight hammock is specially cut and stabilized with side straps, for comfortable lying in any position. And it offers the perfect suspension solution.
If the CrazyChair CLIPPER gets wet, it is dry again after a short time. Even sunscreen or a wet bikini will not harm the material. For more than 10 years it has been used for hammocks on cruise ships. There, too, it has to withstand extreme demands, because salt air, seawater and sunshine place great demands on the material. The CrazyChair Clipper is TÜV tested and has an EU and US patent. After more than ten years, 70 percent of the ship hammocks are still in use in their original condition - this extraordinary longevity distinguishes all CrazyChair hammocks. Sustainability is also guaranteed: The Batyline® material of the micro mesh fabric can be recycled and reused. For this it was awarded the "GOLD-Greencard Certificate of Compliance".
Both are passionate sailors. Environmental friendliness is as important to the CrazyChair founders Renate and Joachim Küllenberg as the comfortable handling of their products. And they love to chill in their hammock. The fact that many of their cotton hammocks often literally sag and can hardly be fixed high enough on board a yacht spurred on the Küllenbergs' inventiveness. And they found the solution: a special jib cuff. One possibility is to fasten the hammock between the fore stay and the mast.
This is very easy with the CrazyChair CLIPPER: Its ends run together in belt loops, which are attached to the possible holding points with stainless steel shackles. In order to protect the forestack and the furled sail from damage, a special jib cuff is used. It distributes the forces that would act on one point over a wide area. The other end of the hammock is attached to a redirected halyard. The height of the couch can be variably determined - the private lounge on board is ready.
