From 1977 until today, Marine Air Systems has represented innovation in marine air conditioning. The first company to develop a self contained ductable marine air conditioner in the 1980’s, Marine Air Systems revolutionized the marine air conditioning business by making marine air conditioning more affordable for boat builders to install. This innovation has lead to the patented Vector Compact design, which is the smallest, lightest and quietest self contained marine air conditioner on the market. Other manufacturers continue to try and keep up, but Marine Air continues to lead the pack. That is why you’ll find Marine Air products installed as factory-supplied air conditioning by many of the world’s leading boatbuilders.
Marine Air Systems is also the leading supplier of chilled water systems for mega yachts on a world wide basis, including the patented Chiller Compact. So whether it be a 28’ cabin cruiser or a 130’ mega yacht, you will find the Marine Air name aboard. With a variety of digital control systems including the new “Elite” control, Marine Air has a system for any size boat and any size budget. These high quality products meet ABYC and CE specifications and are built in an ISO registered facility in Pompano Beach, Florida. These products are sold, installed and serviced through an extensive world-wide network of factory-trained dealers.
Marine Air Systems products are made by Dometic Environmental Corporation, formerly Taylor Made Environmental, which was acquired by Dometic Corporation from the Taylor Made Group in August 2003. “Although there has been a change in ownership, the management, sales, customer service and engineering functions have remained completely intact” says Frank Marciano the President of Dometic Environmental Corporation. “This is very important as we continue to give our customers the world class service that they have been accustomed to over the years.” Other major brands include Cruisair air conditioning and fishbox refrigeration, Dometic Refrigerators and Freezers, Sentry battery chargers, Grunert marine refrigeration systems, Dometic microwaves and Eskimo Ice – ice crushing systems.
In addition to marine product, Dometic Environmental Corporation also sells auxiliary air conditioning systems and refrigerators for long-haul trucks under the Dometic brand name and air-cooled HVAC systems for motor coaches, emergency vehicles, broadcast vans and other specialty vehicles under the Cruisair brand.
