To be more specific I would need to know the size (BTU) of the existing unit as they are priced by size...

You will also need a seawater pump that can run on that power, and size of the unit tells me what size pump to quote.

Where in St Pete is the boat ?

Hi Steve, May I know howmuch is the new unit cost + labour ? The boat is in St. Petersburg now and it would be cheaper to change in the State rather than in Australia right.

 

Do you accept trade-in for my old unit ?

Thanks

Generally speaking…Converting your 115v 50/60Hz unit for Australian 230v 50Hz is not feasible economically…

The cost with a compressor, blower, capacitors, labor etc… Would likely be close to the cost of a new unit made for that power…Then you also get a new unit with full factory warranty instead of a old unit with little if any warranty…

Same thing with your fridge…

Probably not what you want to hear, but it's my best advise…Remove & sell the existing operational equipment here before you ship the boat, and apply those funds towards new stuff either here, or in Australia when the boat arrives…If you wait till the boat arrives you won't have to deal with the refrigerant thing.

Hi Steve,
I recently just purchase a boat 2003 Wellcraft 2600 martinique from St. Petersburg. I'm going to have it imported to Australia. The boat have power and Air-con with heat. I knew that to import to Australia need to de-gas the aircon and fridge. Beside that is there anything else need to change and have it converted inorder to be use in Australia. I think I need to do a power conversion right ? Can you quote me for the conversion ? Also any parts I need to change for the Aircon & heating side and other items? Please quote as well.
My email is ** you don't have permission to see this link **
Thanks alot.
