Villaboat International, the world’s leading manufacturer of luxury houseboats, has selected Dometic Marine as its preferred supplier of marine air conditioning and sanitation systems. As part of the new agreement, Dometic Marine’s HVAC and sanitation equipment will be listed as an option on all new-build houseboats, with the first installation due to take place in April on-board a 22m boat in Hamburg.
With shipyards in Spain, Germany and the UAE, Villaboat is one of the largest builders of first class, custom-made houseboats ranging from 13m to 22m. Constructed entirely of modern hi-tech composite material, a Villaboat offers excellent heat insulation and sound insulation for comfortable on-board living.
“As a manufacturer of boats that offer all of the luxuries of a home away from home, it was important that we found a reliable partner that could provide premium on-board systems suitable for year-round operation,” commented Christian Schwartau, Chief Operations Officer, Villaboat.
“We have contracts with several recreational harbour projects where the boats are in charter during the whole year and so failure of systems on-board is not an option for us. Dometic Marine is a supplier we can trust and provides rugged systems, excellent engineering knowledge and training to support us.”
