At home on the seas
Best friends: hammocks on ships.
A good 520 years after Christopher Columbus discovered the hammock, the first cruise ship with Crazy Chair hammocks was launched. It took a long time, but now you can experience the luxury of a private hammock on many ships. Whether in the suite, veranda or balcony cabin or on the pool deck: Crazy Chair has developed nautical hammocks and hanging chairs in cooperation with international shipping companies. Tailored to the space requirements of the respective ship classes and certified by TÜV, IMO, MED and Germanischer LLoyd. This is unique.
Ships and hammocks have been closely associated since time immemorial and served the crews as space-saving "resting and sleeping places". Over time they had to give way to the sunbeds. But the booming cruise tourism has rediscovered the hammock and is increasingly offering it to guests on increasingly luxurious ships. The special feeling of lying in a hammock on board a ship, enjoying the hours of sunshine and the sunset is relaxation at its finest.
A hammock is not just a hammock.
It has to meet the demands on ships, which is totally different from using a hammock in the garden or on the balcony/terrace. Because wind and weather, the constant influence of salt water, sun, UV rays, often extremely hot daytime temperatures and cool nights, hygiene and care, resilience, safety, fire protection B1 and intensive use by guests, etc. must be met by the material and processing .
Cruise ships and luxury liners.
Extreme conditions apply when outfitting cruise ships. Anyone who makes a name for himself as an outfitter with his products can count himself among the absolute upper class. The requirements for safety, fire protection, resilience, etc. are precisely checked and documented by institutes. Those who do not meet these admission criteria are eliminated. Because the safety of the guests on a cruise ship has top priority - without ifs and buts. That's why we're proud to count companies like TUI Cruises, Costa Crociere and AIDA Cruises among our customers.
Mega luxury yachts and tall ships
The focus here is on the requirements for design, colour, size, etc. and individuality in small series is desired. The possibilities of assembling hammocks and hanging chairs are usually available or are carried out by the shipyard or owner. For a long-standing customer who had already had his 2nd mega yacht (Kismet 94m) built at the Lürssen shipyard, only Crazy Chair hammocks were allowed on board.
Owner and charter yachts
With sailing and motor yachts in this category, the space available for using hammocks and hanging chairs is often limited. While sailing yachts offer many options for attachment, such as between the jib and mast, on the mast with a spacer, between the mast and shrouds, hanging on the bull stand or boom, on the boom nock, etc. It is different with motor yachts or open boats. If you have the option to include a flybridge, a David or a sturdy stainless steel hoop, chances are good. But in the end the conditions of the yacht have to be individually adjusted. We have many customers in this area and have extensive experience potential.
Designers and manufacturers in the maritime premium segment.
In the field of weatherproof hammocks and hanging chairs, we have achieved a leading position for many years and our know-how in the maritime sector is certainly unique. We only process materials that meet the strict requirements (seawater, sun / UV, care, resilience, durability, safety). These special maritime hammocks have fire protection B1, are IMO, MED and TÜV certified.
We now equip the entire cruise fleet of AIDA Cruises and TUI Cruises with our hammocks, as do others, such as the Costa Neo Romantica. Our current projects in 2017 are Mein Schiff 6 and AIDAperla.
By the way: The CLIPPER is a novelty as a weatherproof, bar-free hammock and the special design. Official institutes have confirmed this. It has the European and US patents, is also TÜV tested, IMO and MED certified and Made in Germany.
Quality is the ticket to the customer.
We are of course proud of this and see it as confirmation that our philosophy of quality in material and processing as well as production Made in Germany represents the right way into the future. This is appreciated by discerning yacht owners and well-known cruise companies who trust us and choose our products.
