DD122FW MK5 Classic Desiccant Dehumidifier 

 

PRICE: From £169

Tried and Tested

“Over the winter months boats become terribly damp and cold, making them a breeding ground for mould, let alone the damage that damp does to upholstery and woodwork. By simply leaving a dehumidifier on board the problem is resolved”

“In this type of dehumidifier, moisture from air blown on to a heated wheel condenses and drops into the built-in bucket below, then leaves the machine dry and warm; ideal for keeping the boat fresh. Another boating bonus is that it is able to work at low temperatures, even as low as 1°C, but when operating, the warm air heats the boat by a few degrees, meaning that it can keep working when it is well below zero outside”

“A safety switch stops the EcoAir from working should it fall over, thus eliminating the fear of fire if leaving it on, especially if your boat is on a swing mooring”

“To create the dampest environment possible, I filled a small cold room with wet washing and stuck the dehumidifier in there with it. It took just a few hours for it to fill the two-litre bucket, which also has an overflow pipe for draining into a sink. It’s great for a boat, and also fantastic for drying the washing at home. But at just £170, why don’t boats that cost six-figure sums have dehumidifiers built in?”
