You’ll be surprised at the installation options for these space saving units. Different from larger marine AC systems, self contained air conditioners can be conveniently installed under bunks, sofas or in a locker. Some only require a height clearance of 8 inches! And if needed, some models come with reverse cycle to heat. Either hot or cold, your day on the water can be comfortable.
Other options include the ability to duct to other rooms with larger, more powerful models. Smaller models start at 16,000 BTU/hr while larger models can go up to 30,000 BTU/hr. While self contained AC units are popular on smaller boats, larger boats up to 40 feet can make use of the larger models with ducting up to 15 feet.
