boot Düsseldorf 2019: At Home on Board with Webasto

Stockdorf/Munich – January 18, 2019 – Webasto heating and air conditioning systems ensure pleasant temperatures on board, regardless of the weather, so that travel on boat and ship is possible all year round. The thermo specialist from Stockdorf near Munich will be presenting its complete systems and a comprehensive range of accessories from 19 to 27 January 2019 at the boot 2019 trade fair in Düsseldorf in hall 10, booth G 59.

Heaters - especially for marine applications
The proven marine heating systems from Webasto provide the necessary comfort on board in wet and cool weather. Both air and water heaters are available - for every boat size and individual heat requirement. With the ThermoCall App, the heaters can be operated via smartphone from any location. Boat travellers will find a comfortably warm cabin after every trip on land.

Air heaters convince by their short preheating time and their effective power output. Thanks to their compact format and marine installation kits specially developed for use on board, they can be retrofitted quickly and easily. An electronic thermostat ensures continuous comfort. Since the intelligent fan control automatically throttles the speed when the previously set temperature is reached, even systems with a higher heating output require little current.

Webasto has three air heaters with different heating outputs in its portfolio. Which heater is most suitable for the particular boat depends on the one hand on the size of the boat, i.e. the volume to be heated, and on the other hand on the outside temperatures at the destinations. Webasto offers the Air Top 2000 STC (2 kW heat output) for boats up to eight metres in length, which, for example, are more likely to travel in the Mediterranean region. Larger boats or boats that have their territory in colder regions are comfortably heated with the Air Top Evo 40 (4 kW heat output) or the Air Top Evo 55 (5.5 kW heat output). The compact Air Top 2000 STC runs on 12 V, the Air Top Evo models on either 12 or 24 V.

At boot 2019, Webasto will be demonstrating how the compact Thermo Pro 90 water heater can be integrated into the water circuit using a boat model. The thermostats can be used to regulate the temperature in the cabins separately and continuously. Thanks to its high output, it also ensures even heat distribution and a comfortable feel-good climate, just like at home. Webasto's portfolio includes reliable water heating solutions with outputs of up to 35 kW, which can be installed in the engine room to save space and also supply hot water for the shower and galley.

BlueCool series air conditioners for travel to warmer regions
For the cooling of boats and ships, Webasto offers air conditioning systems with different cooling capacities - depending on requirements. The BlueCool S-Series compact air conditioner provides refreshing coolness on boats with up to three cabins when travelling to warmer regions. The cooling capacity is between 6,000 and 27,000 BTU/h. All models in the series are also equipped with a heat pump function that can also be used to heat the cabins. BlueCool S Series air conditioners are extremely efficient and easy to retrofit. For larger boats, BlueCool C series air conditioners offer a wide performance range between 16,000 and 108,000 BTU/h. These chiller systems use a water-glycol mixture for the temperature control of the cabins, which is led via pipelines to the individual cabins. There, the interior can be cooled or heated as required using compact fan heat exchangers. The BlueCool S and C series are operated with 230 V alternating current and 50 Hz or 60 Hz. This means that the air conditioning systems can be used anywhere in the world. Since this year, Webasto has been offering mobile generators of the Whisper Power brand for a location-independent power supply. At boot 2019 these generators can be seen at the booth of Whisper Power BV (hall 7a, booth E19).

All climate systems in the BlueCool product family are controlled by the intuitive MyTouch element. It has a colour touch screen and simple, self-explanatory symbols. MyTouch is compatible with various commercially available cover frames and can therefore be optically adapted to any boat design.

In addition to the complete heating and cooling systems, Webasto offers a comprehensive range of accessories for anyone who wants to retrofit their boat themselves.
