Sleep Tight Sleep Well
Is sleep important to you?
Studies show that people do not pay as much attention to sleep comfort on yachts as they do in land-based accommodation. This applies to superyacht owners, their guests and their crew.
On some superyachts, crew mattresses are even selected based solely on price. Generally not a good idea if one wishes to keep the crew happy and productive.
The right sheets, pillows and duvets are crucial to getting a good sleep in as well. But getting to see them before you buy can present a problem for some Chief Stews
With Neptune Superyacht Mattress opening a fully-fledged experience centre on the sunny island of Mallorca, that is set to change.
The new sleep showroom will be situated in the heart of Palma, located a stone’s throw from the famous Paseo promenade. You can find it at Avinguda de Joan Miró 3, just five minutes from major marinas in Palma.
The new sleep showroom in Palma will feature fourteen different qualities/thicknesses of mattress in seven beds for visitors to check out. Each bed will have two different mattress qualities. The models on display will include berths for crew members as well as owners and their guests.
Customers will be able to judge the different thickness, qualities and finish of each mattress first-hand. And they can instantly experience the comfort provided by Neptune’s boat mattresses, pillows and bed linen.
A stronger presence
Opening in early April, the new experience centre in Palma de Mallorca follows an impressive extension of the Neptune’s headquarters in Zwaagdijk-Oost (Holland).
Completed in 2019, this is part of their strategy for the future and plans to meet the growing demand for its boat mattresses, upholstery and beds. The company is currently looking to establish a more permanent presence in the South of France, Italy and the rest of the Mediterranean.
A wide range of sleep solutions
Neptune provides lots of options in a wide range of thicknesses and qualities, from mattresses of 100% Vita Talalay latex to pocket spring mattresses with a 100% Vita Talalay latex finish. Mattresses are custom-made to fit each bed. The right sheets, pillows and duvets are crucial as well and, here too, Neptune has bespoke solutions for every yacht.
Full range of sleep services and activities
Melanie Winters, Neptune’s dealer responsible for the Balearic Islands, will be in charge at the new experience centre in Palma. She will be available for appointments every day.
In addition, the experience centre will provide general decorating advice for boat and house interiors by appointment. The new establishment will also host workshops for yacht crew members. Topics will include ‘the importance of sleeping right’ in partnership with a physiotherapist. Another will feature ‘relaxing after work’ in cooperation with a yoga instructor. And another on ‘the right way to make beds’ together with Palma’s VIP Service School.
It seems Neptune has bespoke solutions for every yacht.
