Best Marine Air Conditioners? Best Brand, Support & Warranty?

Boaters often wonder which brand makes the best marine air conditioners when looking to install a new unit.

However, the keyword here is most. You want to improve your odds of being satisfied with your A/C purchase by researching which company’s units have the least number of complaints… and if there is a problem, how that company handles it.

Notes if replacing a Dometic DTU16, DTG16 or ECD16 - 115V

The CTM CT-16 marine air conditioning unit works as a good replacement for the Dometic DTG16 - 115V (205160174), DTU16 - 115V (205160160), or ECD16 - 115V (207500316). There are some specs that should be taken into consideration when replacing one of the units previously mentioned. 

- Because the CT-16 unit comes with the Universal Control board, it will work with the controller you currently have. Supported controllers included: SMXir, Passport I/O, Smart Touch, Elite II. 

- Waterline connections should be the same as the unit you are replacing, the CT-unit has a standard 5/8" water connection.

- The CT-16 Unit has a 6-inch ducting ring whereas the Dometic comes with a 7 inch. It is a quick replacement as the ducting can be easily cinched down with a clamp.

- Dimensions wise this unit is very similar to the one you are replacing, so It shouldn't be a major issue. However, it is suggested you double-check in order to avoid any issues when installing.

The unit is working excellent so far. What we like the most is that this one cools the cabin to the real time set, for example if it is set to 65 degrees the cabin’s temperature goes to that exact temperature. The old unit we replaced ( Dometic ) never cooled the cabin to 65 degrees even though it was set to that temperature, if we put it to 65 degrees, the cabin was always 68 degrees, Another thing is that the CTM is more quiet, silent.

class="review-name" itemprop="name">Great, quiet, heat and cool like we never had

The boat we have is a 2004. It had Cruisairs that did not hold refrigerant any longer. One had been repaired, but leaked again. The quote given to me was nearly 9k to replace. I did some investigating, found the CTM units and how to install. I just put them in 2 days after Xmas myself. The boat is in Ft Myers Beach, I live in Wisconsin. I ordered them 3 weeks ahead, figuring it would take time. Ordered on a Friday, delivered to the marine the next day.

They run great, quiet, heat and cool like we never had. Thank you very much, saved me about $4800

My Dometic DTU16 kicked the bucket this year. Replaced it with the CT16. Great price, and the sales guys were real knowledgeable, helpful. The CT unit kept my boat cool all summer, worked like a champ. Will be testing out the reverse cycle soon.

I bought this unit as a replacement for my cruisair VTD 16, and I am very pleased with my selection. Great unit and lets me use my old thermostat and cable.
