Make Sure Your New Yacht is Ready for Fort Lauderdale, Inside and Out

So, you’ve finally taken the plunge and invested in a yacht – only to find that there are many more elements to set up that may not have been first and foremost on your mind. The internal workings of your yacht need setup and care in an efficient, cost-friendly manner that will last for the years you hope to keep it. Making sure that these are set up properly the first time, when you first purchase your yacht, will get you out on the water sooner and for longer.

Air Conditioning

The open water is just that – open. If you’re taking your new yacht out on the water for the day, you’ll be exposed to the elements, and your indoor spaces will be more difficult to keep cool. Make sure to choose the option that works best for your needs, whether a standalone unit or a complete system.

A complete system will require coordination and interaction with other elements in your yacht, including the electrical system. Should you choose this option, make sure you hire a service with comprehensive knowledge of yacht systems in Fort Lauderdale. While companies who frequently install these conditioning systems are experienced, you should be able to ask questions about the effects on the rest of your yacht, the energy required to use the system and the long-term maintenance required to keep everything up. Not every company will be able to meet this need, so qualify your options before committing.


This is not a system you want to find inactive while out on the water! Be sure to confirm, one way or the other, the working condition of your yacht’s plumbing. If not, the salesman may not be the person to ask for help. They may have some references for you to start with, but be sure to do some of your own research too.

Yacht plumbing is different from home plumbing, and so should not be handled similarly. Make sure the company that you choose for this installation is experienced in all areas of your yacht’s system, including the pump, drains, shower, faucets and wash-down for cleaning the decks and surfaces of the yacht. These are also interactive systems, and will require a thorough investigation and knowledge of comprehensive yacht systems in Fort Lauderdale.

TV and Electrical

For entertaining, TV may provide an additional distraction for those looking to relax and unwind, even on the water. But the power and installation process required to make this addition to your yacht’s limited power supply should be taken seriously. Your specialist should be able to ensure the comprehensive electrical system’s continued performance. The additions should not only interact properly with your system, but be sustained by it in the long run.

Some of these tips may seem overwhelming, but don’t be intimidated! The goal is to not be surprised by the steps necessary to get your yacht in functional order. As a new yacht owner, it is important to consider all the aspects of your new purchase before taking it out on the water.
