Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

November 10, 2011

Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) specialist Dometic Marine will supply its Cruisair equipment aboard a 105ft Motoryacht Class which has been built by houseboat and custom yacht builder, Skipper Manufacturing LLC.


As part of the new agreement Dometic will deliver custom-built chilled water equipment to provide the yacht with 480,000 BTU (British thermal unit) or 40 tons of capacity. “As a private charter vessel, the ‘Lady of the Lake’ will be used to entertain up to 150 guests from her home port at Riverside Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The provision of reliable air conditioning aboard is essential to ensure the comfort of passengers and crew as well as satisfy owner expectations,” comments Bernie Clements, Purchasing Manager Skipper Manufacturing. “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.”

Scheduled for delivery during November 2011 the complete Cruisair HVAC system includes a 3-stage chiller with 21 standard and low-profile air handlers which are designed to use minimal overhead space. Dometic Marine’s latest project with Skipper Manufacturing is testament to the company’s customer-orientated strategy which outlines support, selection and service to address the challenges faced by designers, yard owners and yacht operators.
