Eberspächer Turns up the Heat at this Year's Southampton Boat Show!

Introducing Next Generation Airtronic Diesel-Fuelled Air Heaters

New for the Southampton Boat Show, next generation market-leading Airtronic diesel fuelled heating units will attract great attention from press and show goers alike. 

Bristling with new technology, models displayed on Stand J-402 will be the new compact Airtronic 2 D2L and Airtronic 2 D4L, capable of heating boats from 23ft to 45ft.

For over 40 years, original Airtronic heaters had attained market-leading status, keeping owners and crew warm and dry and boats free of condensation. Now new and exciting developments have led the way for the next generation. Benefits include a 40% increase in an already long service period thanks to a brushless motor, which increases the life and reliability of the system for a wide range of marine applications.   

Further innovations for this new line include quieter heater operation, optimized burner and CAN bus technology also new.   

The Airtronic Generation 2 ensures a pleasant, relaxing ambiance, warming the boat's interior to just the right levels of comfort and infinitely variable heat output has now been made even quieter.   

The metering pump has been noise-optimized, so that the "ticking" when pumping fuel, is a thing of the past and Generation 2 units run quieter thus ensuring a better, more peaceful sleep.   

Making the internal workings more robust and less exposed to electrical faults, CAN bus technology becomes the ‘nerve centre’ of each system ensuring greater reliability.   

A new and improved EasyStart Pro control switch has been designed to enhance a modern dashboard or bulkhead. EasyStart Pro is easy to use and includes a timer function, allowing users to select the desired start time and heating duration. An integrated temperature sensor, enables interior temperature to be regulated exactly as desired.

The display function, including a multi-coloured LED ring surrounding the operating button, continuously indicates whether heating or ventilation mode is currently active.

With greater and smarter ‘finger tip’ temperature control, boat owners stand to benefit from greater fuel efficiency and lower power consumption.

Eberspächer UK Ltd, Managing Director, Vince Lee, commented, “The way boats are used these days are changing, whether it be for sail or power. We are finding that a significant number of owners want to spend more time on-board and cruise further distances throughout the year, and not just in the summer months. With the launch of Airtronic Gen 2 heaters, we have made a giant leap offering superior on-board creature comforts”.

An Expanded Marine Team to Attend the Southampton Boat Show    

On the stand will be Marine Design Engineers, Matthew Burkes and Stuart Moore, who are part of the senior team from Eberspächer UK and who will accompany representatives from the national dealer network. All will be on hand to offer advice on next generation Airtronic and current Hydronic ranges.   

M.D. Vince Lee, added, “I am delighted to announce we have expanded the marine team at Eberspächer UK with the introduction of Matthew Burkes who has joined to further strengthen our support in leisure marine. Matthew, together with Stuart, have over 35 years combined market experience, with skills encompassing both the hugely demanding commercial marine trade, along with the diversity of the leisure market”.
