METSTRADE 2019: Webasto Comfort for Modern Marine Market

Stockdorf/Amsterdam – November 19, 2019 – At METSTRADE, the world's largest trade fair for marine equipment, Webasto, expert in thermal management, together with Indel Webasto Marine expert in marine refrigeration, present its innovative thermal and roof systems for the future marine market. From 19 to 21 November, in Hall 12, Stand 603, Webasto shows for the first time a digital control unit for its thermal systems and the expansion of its sunroof range for boats.

Future-oriented operation of thermal systems
At Webasto, the focus is always on comfort for the customer. The new, BlueCool Connect device connects all air-conditioning systems in the BlueCool series to a network and thus enables simple operation of all devices on board via smartphone, tablet or PC. It can also be used for remote maintenance and software updates. The BlueCool Connect automatically connects to the mobile network and also offers an ad hoc WiFi connection at sea. The BlueCool Connect and all air conditioners can also be controlled via multifunction displays (MFD) using NMEA 2000 or plug and play Ethernet connection. Boat owners can thus choose between BlueCool MyTouch display, smartphone, tablet or multifunction displays (MFD). Webasto will also be showing its range of air conditioners of various sizes, including the proven BlueCool C-series, S-series and V-series. In addition, Webasto is showing heaters for watercraft of various sizes, such as the fuel-powered air heater Air Top Evo 55 and the water heater Thermo Pro 90 with heating outputs of up to 9 kW.

Individual roof systems for marine applications
In addition to the proven shading solutions of the Folding Shade and Rolling Shade series as optimum sun protection on the water, Webasto presents innovations from the BlueSky sunroof series. Following the market trend, all BlueSky roof systems are now also available in a completely black version. This creates a modern look and is in harmony with the black window pillars and frames. A new, premium version of the electrically operated BlueSky roof is also equipped with a grey-tinted glass plate instead of an acrylic plate. The product range is rounded off by a more economical, manual version of the BlueSky roof. This is also available in a smaller version (500mm x 500mm) and can therefore be used in smaller boat models.

Highly efficient refrigerators and freezers
The Isotherm refrigerators and freezers, the widest range on the market, provide cool drinks and food on board. Depending on the desired temperature and available space, various wine cellars, refrigerator and freezer units as well as ice machines are available, such as the user friendly refrigerator models of the Isotherm Drawer series. The exclusive Divino The One wine cooler blends seamlessly into the design of any boat model. LED lighting in 27 possible colors completes the elegance of the wine cooler.
