More coverage in the press for the DD8L Zambezi dehumidifier, this time in Motorboat Owner magazine.motorboat-owner

Boat owners are large users of dehumidifiers and tend to use them in the winter when the boats are laid up and not being used again until the weather improves in the spring.  To prevent the boat from smelling musty on their return the use of a dehumidifier is a popular solution to keep them dry and mould free.

A common setup is to put the dehumidifier onto the galley side and use the hose to drain the water into the sink so that the dehumidifier can be left unattended for long periods of time.

Electricity rates can be high if your boat is at a marina and you are paying surcharged rates for the electrical supply.  Boat owners therefore look for a dehumidifier with a good humidistat and often want to be able to control the number of hours a day a dehumidifier runs for.  In the past this was done using an external time to cut the power to the dehumidifier but forcing this power cut is unhealthy for any dehumidifier because they need to go through a shutdown protocol before the power is lost.

Motorboat Owner magazine were therefore spot on when they focused in on Zambezi’s unique built in Daily Run Timer that allows you to select when the dehumidifier works each day.  This gives the owner the exact control they want without compromising the dehumidifier.

The DD8L Zambezi is also the safest dehumidifier in the Meaco range incorporating 12 different safety features based on years of practical experience in the dehumidifier sector.

The sterilising ioniser will destroy any mould spores that dare to grow on board and for those living on their boats the low cost laundry mode will provide a welcome method of drying laundry.

All of the above adds to the growing case for the DD8L Zambezi to be the default dehumidifier for the boat owner.
