Dometic: Southampton Boat Show: Dometic Offers Full Retrofitted Systems for Reliable Cooling and Heating

Easy-to-install air-conditioning kits ensure ideal temperatures all year round and add value to the boat

Southampton Boat Show 2016, Mayflower Park, 16th to 25th September, Stand J316

Dometic is highlighting its leading air-conditioning retrofit capability at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.

The HVAC specialist offers complete new air-conditioning system installation with a compact retrofit kit that can be sized to suit your boat and customised to treat one or more interior spaces.

Dramatically improving the quality of life on board, the Dometic systems allow boat owners to cool and heat their boat to enjoy ideal temperatures all year round and also increases the re-sale value of the boat.

Dometic’s Turbo series of self-contained marine HVAC are powerful, quiet and compact and feature a rust-free composite drain pan for the rapid removal of condensate water. A vibration-isolation mounting system results in significantly quieter, virtually vibration-free, performance.

The space-saving air-conditioning kits include high-velocity blowers, self-contained air conditioning unit and digital control, an optional duct kit for additional interior spaces, plus all air distribution and plumbing components. A range of kits are available to offer the level of BTUs/hr required.

Steve Morris, Director of MAOE Sales, UK, Dometic, said: “It is now possible to affordably install equipment which provides cooling, heating and dehumidification on all sizes and types of boat. In particular, we want to highlight to customers who own 30ft to 40ft vessels that retrofitting AC is a viable option. We can suggest a system to suit the customer’s needs which will make their life on board more comfortable. The process is extremely quick and easy as our systems are very simple to install. Also, as Dometic is the preferred HVAC supplier for many boat builders, the refit will be straight-forward as the lay-out is already in place for our equipment.”

Dometic offers four types of system, from self-contained all-in-one units, split-gas systems and chilled water systems, to its air-cooled DuraSea commercial range.

Perfect for vessels around 40ft in length, self-contained air conditioners have all main components installed on a single chassis installed in a living area and are compact enough to be concealed under a bunk, or in a locker or closet. A single unit can cool one cabin or it can be ducted to two or more cabins to save space and cost.

There are some important factors to consider when purchasing HVAC equipment, such as the climate and environment in which the vessel is operating, future cruising plans and the on-board power source and all the applications the HVAC will be supporting.

Dometic representatives are available to discuss retrofit options for your boat at Southampton Boat Show. Please visit Stand J316 or go to for more information.
