Hi all we looking at hiring a boat for next March 2022. So going to need heating. On boats we had in the past they. all had heating, but can only ever be used if you got the engine running to get them started. Now in March the morning are likely to be cold so going to need heating at 6 when I get up,( yes I know that's early but like the peace and quite at that time of the day). so can't run engine at this time.  So was wondering if we got boat with a shore hook up would we be able to use the heating in the night.

Or does anyone have any recommendations on boats that can have heating on at night. Have looked at Brinks Rhaspody as that's all electric, but the reviews are not that good. Plus the price.  

Chris

A properly designed heating system with decent batteries should not need the engine to be run to start . That said if the yard cannot confirm that is the case with the boat you are interested in then yes, providing the shore power is connected through the boats battery charger then that should enable enough power to the batteries to start the heating without running the engine .

Hi MrC
If you have shore power you can take a fan heater they are very light and take the edge off. A fan heater really boosts the warm air system as well.

One tip given to me.   Before you leave the Marina make sure you know where the cable is and that it is there to be used.   If not and the boat is advertised as being able to use 240 shore leccy then demand you get one.   I have heard that some Marinas are loath to put them on board due to numpties ruining them by casting off still attached.

Saying that is not only hirers that do that.   When we were moored at a certain Marina down South the chap behind us took off one day with the cable attached and not only wrecked his cable but took the whole unit with him so all of us were with out electric for a while.

Women dont nag they just
point
things out...

If you go for shore power, I would recommned one of those oil-filled radiators on wheels. They are safe as no external heating elements, and as such can be left on low overnight too.

Hi Chris. We had gracious emblem from ferry Marina. The heating system was very good. You don,t need to run the engine and the heating doesn’t, run off the diesel. The hot air is blown across a heater matrix, like in a car. Each area has its own temperature and fan speed control. There is a controller in the aft cabin for Hot water. Or Hot water and heating. The electrics are all 240 Volt and no gas.
The only downside  for hiring in March may be the aircraft 8ft 4in. But other than that a first class boat.

How does the heat get generated? Is it electric?

Regards, Ray.

Oil filled and warm air heaters taken onboard eat electric so have a supply of electric cards (both type) if you go down this route.

All help gratefully

Do you all have a hook up de hook up procedure
Hooking up connect boat first then electric point
Hooking off disconnect electric point then boat
That way not electrics at water side
