Modern motor yachts offer a high
level of luxury and comfort, and a warm and cozy environment is a
priority. Webasto Air or Coolant Heater systems fit virtually any type
of motor yacht. For example, an Webasto Coolant system installation can
be integrated into your domestic hot water system and give a supply of
hot water at all times.
Webasto Air Heaters are normally installed in the engine area with hot
air ducted to the cabins via flexible tubes. All you see are the
discreet outlets in the cabins.
Diesel fuel is drawn directly from the main tank with a separate fuel
metering pump; this pump is included with your kit. For boats with
gasoline engines it is recommended that you consult your dealer for
guidelines and installation instructions. If you have a gasoline
engine a diesel heater is recommended using a separate tank to hold
the diesel. Fuel usage for the heater is such that only a small tank
Webasto Heaters can suit boats up to 95ft through multiple heat and zone
heating, while offering the latest in power and space saving designs.
In a sail boat, space is at a
premium. The compact size of an Webasto unit reflects this with the
heater usually being fit in a stern / cockpit locker and the exhaust
being led away to the transom.
The warm air duct system is led to the cabins behind panels and
through interior lockers. All that can be seen are the outlets in
berth/seating fascias. The ducts are kept as short as possible to
maintain an efficient air flow. Very often only one outlet is
necessary in sailboats up to 32ft. The strength of the outlet hot air
flow is sufficient to convect throughout the boat.
As ducts pass through interior lockers, natural surface heat loss
creates useful drying compartments. This surplus heat is also doing
much for heating those hidden corners beneath the cabin floors.
Fuel is drawn from the main boat tank and actual consumption is so
small it does not materially affect the capacity of fuel carried for
A battery connection is necessary to drive the initial ignition, fuel
system and main air fan. However, Webasto units are designed to offer a
balance of economic electrical draw with optimum heat and air power
New Compact models such as the AIRTOP Series offer integrated electronic
control (no separate control box required), automatic boost heat
level, self-regulation across a number of heat levels and extremely
low power consumption.
