Never over-publicized, on the market for a few years now, brilliant. The three products we show you are real “cool” life-changers on board that you probably (unless you are a “show rat” or insider) don’t know about.
Living on a boat: 3 accessories that change your cruise
SEABERIA – THE DISSALATOR ALSO DOES THE AIR CONDITIONER It is called Seaberia the desalinator produced by Italy’s Selmar with an integrated air conditioning system, fresh water production from the air and built-in air purifier. In a small space, you will have two functions that allow you to experience the boat 365 days a year.
It is a compact, easy-to-manage unit made of a solid stainless steel structure and equipped with a microcontroller electronic control unit to manage and monitor the desalination section (and an LCD display controller capable of managing and monitoring the air conditioning section and the built-in air purification section). The watermaker is available with flow rates from 100 liters/hour up to 300 liters/hour, while the air conditioning system is available in sizes from 6000 btu up to 18000 btu. FIND IT HERE.
KECO COOLER KIT – YOU MAKE YOUR FRIDGE WITH ZERO IMPACT
KECO is the most environmentally friendly refrigeration kit intended for iceboxes or insulated compartments in boats: it is in fact thermo-controlled by seawater (so it does not use gas and compressors). It can also be mounted in an existing cold room and has many advantages.
At full throttle, it has low consumption (of only 2.8 A that increases to 9.8 at the moment of maximum thrust), does not take up space in the galley (not needing a compressor, does not raise the temperature on board because the heat is dissipated into the sea, and, last but not least, does not require maintenance or recharging. It consists of a radiator, a pump, and a microprocessor control unit that weighs only 180 grams (dimensions 70 x 125 x 40 mm). FIND IT HERE.
CABIN COOLER – COOLNESS COMES FROM THE SEA
Cabin cooler is an innovative product: it is a simple and efficient fan-driven air conditioner that consumes little energy (1 ampere at 12 V), requires little space, and is also very quiet. Are you in a roadstead and the heat is gripping you? Submerge the Cabin Cooler heat exchanger under the boat, with the tubes provided connect it through a hatch to the air conditioner and turn it on.
Cold water will circulate in the pipes and flow to the air conditioner-you will have all the coolness you want with the energy consumption of a light bulb. FIND IT HERE.
