LAGOON RELIES ON AIR CONDITIONING UNITS FROM WEBASTO FOR ITS CATAMARAN RANGE
Webasto, global systems partner to the mobility industry, is now outfitting the boats of the premium Lagoon brand with compact BlueCool S-Series air conditioning units.
The Lagoon boatyard has been building catamarans with a focus on innovation and individuality since 1984. For the Lagoon 40 to 55 models, the yacht manufacturer now relies on Webasto’s BlueCool S-Series air conditioning systems to enhance on-board comfort when navigating the high seas. Thanks to the heat pump mode of the stand-alone compact air conditioning units, the catamarans’ cabins can be cooled or heated independently of each other, offering passengers added comfort and freedom.
BlueCool S-Series compact air conditioners: a flexible solution
The BlueCool S-Series range is available in voltage variants of 115 and 230 volts. The latter is fully compatible with 50- and 60-Hertz power supplies, making it suitable for worldwide use. Other benefits include the option of operating the air conditioning unit in heat pump mode (hot/cold), its compact dimensions and its low-noise operation. The air conditioning system is controlled via the innovative MyTouch control unit. Operation is intuitive and offers new functions such as a timer, a detailed status display, an individually configurable standby display, and error messages with analysis data. The BlueCool S-Series is also compatible with the optional BlueCool Expert Tool, which connects to a PC via a USB cable and can facilitate on-site maintenance and remote support.
The stand-alone, scalable BlueCool S-Series compact air conditioning units are the ideal solution for boats and yachts aboard which multiple cabins need to be cooled, making them ideal for the cabin concept of the Lagoon range. From the initial needs analysis to the precise dimensioning of the air conditioning installation for different-sized cabins, Webasto plans cooling capacity requirements in advance. Numerous parameters play a role in determining the cooling capacity, including the volume of the individual cabins, the window areas in cabins and saloons, the sailing waters, the customer’s desired temperature, and the timing and temperature needed in relation to outdoor variables. Lagoon relies on Webasto’s air conditioning systems to deliver a wide-ranging performance spectrum between 6,000 and 20,000 BTU.
