16,000 BTUs of powerful, quiet, and efficient cooling. 115V. Titanium circulating coils, stainless steel bolts, and stainless steel structural pan ensure long-lasting, corrosion-proof compressor / condensing unit performance in even the toughest of marine environments. 2-Year Warranty*.

The quiet, powerful, and efficient CTM Split Marine Air Conditioning Unit is a great option for new installs but also works as the perfect drop-in replacement for all major marine A/C brands including Dometic, Marine Air, and Cruisair. The CTM split unit is fully compatible with all Dometic, Cruisair, Marine Air, and Micro Air controls/thermostats and cables, making replacement of those systems a breeze.


CTM has taken nearly a decade of experience as a top-selling marine A/C retailer in the US, and combining this with an understanding of the wants and needs of marine A/C customers — as well as where other major brands could be improved — CTM has created a split marine condensing unit that raises the bar on quality and performance.

By using R410A refrigerant, CTM engineers guarantee maximum cooling performance while meeting all international standards of clean air.

All CTM Control Boards, Temperature Sensors, and cables are made in the United States under strict quality standards. Every CTM Unit comes with an industry-standard 2-year warranty*, knowledgeable and attentive customer service, and ships ground to you free of charge within the US.

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. 

To be honest, most marine air conditioners from all the major brands are solid and will do the job, as long as they’ve been installed correctly. 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 DEU16 or DEG16 - 115V

The CTM CX-16 115V Marine Air Conditioning Unit works as an excellent replacement for the Dometic DEU16 - 115V (201150160), ED16U - 115V (712216100), or EQ16U - 115V (712116100). There are some specs that should be taken into consideration when replacing one of the units previously mentioned. It is also a good replacement unit for the Cruisair RX models, but in the case of the RX units, you will need to replace the evaporators (being that they use R22 / R417A gas and the CX unit and evaporators use R410A)

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

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

- Dimensions wise the CTM CX is very similar to the above-listed Dometic and Cruisair split gas units, so there shouldn’t be any issues when replacing your current unit with the CX. However, it is recommended that you double-check your current installation space and the CTM CT’s specs in order to avoid any issues when installing.
