SURVEY RESULTS - HEATING ON BOARD

SURVEY RESULTS - HEATING ON BOARD

We’d like to share with you the results from our recent survey on the subject of heating on board our boats, taking into account the data collected and the informative article published on our website, which you can view here: SURVEY - HEATING YOUR CATAMARAN (excess-catamarans.com)

 

 

Following our survey, it is pleasing to note that 69% of respondents were interested in installing a heating system aboard their boat.

The main motivation behind their responses was the extension of the boating season generated by the comfort of warmth.

Significantly, almost two-thirds of those polled expressed a marked preference for the purchase of a forced air heating system over water-based heating. The reasons given underline the increased speed and safety offered by air heating systems, reinforcing our understanding of our community’s expectations when it comes to on-board comfort.

For us, these results are a valuable source of information that will guide our future developments and innovations. We look forward to responding to the needs expressed by our community and continuing to improve their experience aboard our Excess catamarans.

 

Thank you to everyone who took the time to take part in the survey.

Bonjour
Avec l'électrification des bateaux de plaisance, pourquoi, pour des modèles optimisant la génération d'électricité (panneaux Photo-voltaïques nombreux, hydrogénérateurs, générateurs électriques,...) ne pas non plus proposer une pompe à chaleur bien plus efficace en rendement, comme celles équipant les véhicules électriques (Tesla par ex.) ?

A very interesting post! We are currently planning the heating system for our Excess 11. Apparently not all rooms in the Excess 11 can be reached with hoses for air heating. We are trying to install a water heating system that can also be used to heat the domestic water. We then don't need electricity for hot water. That would also be an advantage for this system. I'm curious to see which solution will prevail.

On Excess 14 Geronimo a Water Heating System is already realized. If you are interested in the solution, let me now.
