A/C for boat

I would like to purchase a window A/C unit for my boat so my wife and I can sleep in it while at the dock.

We keep the boat at Port Canaveral Yacht Club in Florida and it gets more than a bit warm here. Usally there is a breeze but not always from the direction I need and there are mosquitoes and enough rain to force me to keep closing at least the hatches.

I would like to buy the smallest A/C unit that will keep my 1981 30' Hunter cool without overworking the A/C unit. By getting the smallest unit I can more easily carry it on and off the boat.

What size A/C unit do I need for this 30' boat?

Thanks,
Will

You can manage with 9000 BTU's. It won't do much during the heat of the day, but by bedtime, it should be pretty comfortable.

Re: A/C for boat

I have a WEBASTCO 5000 BTU air conditioner on my Morgan 33 O.I. and even during the hottest, most humid summer days it cools the entire boat to 70-degrees within 30 minutes. Installation was relatively easy, but you will need to put in an underwater thru-hull and an above-water drain. Take a look at WEBASTO FCF Series Air Conditioner, FCF 5000 (115V) at West Marine

Good Luck,

Gary
