Not all mattresses are created equal

Now that the COVID-19 measures are beginning to loosen in the med, it’s time to prepare your boat for the new sailing season. It might not be the first thing that comes to mind when preparing your boat, but a crucial task to add to the list is to unzip the cover of your mattress and take a look at what’s lurking beneath! Chances are you will find mould. It’s a common problem on board pleasure vessels as well as many Superyachts but not insurmountable; Neptune can make a difference!

Without realising it, every night each of us perspires which, due to lack of ventilation under mattresses, causes moisture and mould build up in the mattress core. Not only is it unsanitary, it’s also very unhealthy with fungi being the cause of everything from runny noses, to watery eyes, respiratory irritation and other health complaints. Even if mould is not visible to the naked eye, you can guarantee that the bacteria are almost always present.

Many custom mattresses do not even have removable covers so you cannot see what’s inside and sometimes with good reason…

We recently removed the pictured orange foam mattresses from a boat. They were made in 23 pieces! These are actually off-cuts that are glued together to make a mattress! Companies will sometimes do this in order to keep in line with the price expectations of yachts, whilst making some profit for themselves. This shoddy workmanship and “cutting corners” to get rid of access foams etc. is certainly not good business practise. The people who made these mattresses should be ashamed of themselves!  Shocking? Yes, unusual? no!

Introducing Neptune…


At Neptune, we only provide super comfortable, excellent quality, extremely healthy and above all mattresses. Neptune craftsmanship is simply the best of the best, we do not settle for anything less!

Feel like it’s time for a new mattress? We have four different categories of mattresses: Comfort, Comfort Plus, Comfort Plus Premium and the Excellent Line, made of the most comfortable and durable materials.

We work with Pantera Nautic™ comfort foam and Vita Talalay® latex, among other premium materials. Fire retardant Pantera Nautic™ is a premium comfort foam that has been anti-bacterially treated and is therefore not susceptible to mould, as well as being dust mite resistant, making it ideal for allergy sufferers. Pantera foam is also fire resistant and IMO certifid. For the discerning sleeper, Neptune also provides the ultimate sleeping comfort, which is produced with 100% Vita Talalay® Latex Superior™. Vita Talalay® Latex Superior™ is a durable, superior latex with an open cell structure that provides optimal ventilation and moisture management. This premium Talalay latex has naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is a super-comfortable material for mattresses and pillows, and has a positive eco footprint to benefit both your peace of mind and your health.

Our sleeping slat systems have been specifically designed to deliver optimal comfort and support. We combine these premium mattresses with our patented Neptune slatted base systems – essential for ventilation under the mattress – to create a comfortable and healthy place to sleep onboard your yacht.

Neptune has a large stock of more than thirty types of premium raw materials to choose from and allow fast processing of orders. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’re working in strict adherence to the national Covid-19 guidelines so your safety is assured.
