Tormented by Noisy Air Conditioning
Private charter vessel, Lady of the Lake, is a 105-ft. Motoryacht Class which has been built by houseboat and custom yacht builder, Skipper Manufacturing LLC. Used by up to 150 guests on any one cruise, the provision of reliable air conditioning aboard is essential to ensure the comfort of passengers and crew as well as satisfy owner expectations.
Hot and sweaty cabins can be detrimental to a guest’s experience, as can the constant humming and vibration of an air conditioning unit, but cooling a large yacht can also have negative implications on the power source, causing wider problems.
Keep Quiet, Avoid Blackouts with Slim Cruisair HVAC
To ensure reliable delivery of efficient cooling and heating without noise pollution or brown or black-outs on-board Lady of the Lake, Dometic’s custom-built chilled water equipment provides the yacht with 480,000 BTU/hr (40 tons) of cooling and heating capacity.
The complete Cruisair HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system includes a three-stage chiller with 21 standard and low-profile air handlers which are designed to be discreet and use minimal overhead space. Further advantages include flexible load management and often a reduced peak electrical load.
A Peaceful Triumph over Stifling Surroundings
Quieter, reliable and efficient systems have provided a comfortable environment for passengers and crew, ensuring their enjoyment on-board is maximized.
Bernie Clements, Purchasing Manager Skipper Manufacturing, said: “Having worked with Dometic for several years, the team has proven to offer HVAC solutions which meet the specific requirements of virtually any application and they are also on hand throughout the duration of the project to provide exceptional technical support.”
