During the evenings in Greece the temperature generally drops to a comfortable temperature and there are cool breezes coming off the water. As a result, most nights you can open the port windows and turn on the fans in the cabins without any need for air conditioning. Our Lagoon 380 does not have air conditioning, however our Saona 47 does have air conditioning. It’s important to note that air conditioning systems on yachts require extensive maintenance because of the wear and tear caused by the salty Aegean air, and we cant guarantee that the system will be functioning on all charters.
When the air conditioning is running there are a few things to keep in mind about usage. The restrictions are very important to keep the system from failing due to over-usage as well as excessive fuel consumption. Please keep the following in mind:
- If the yacht is not connected to a power supply the yacht’s generator will be needed to run the A/C.
- Some islands don’t offer a power supply in the marina, and on some islands you’ll need to anchor in a bay vs. dock in a marina
- The generator can be used for up to 3 hours per day, and not past midnight due to the noise it causes while running.
- It is possible to use the generator for up to 6 hours (the maximum based on manufacturer recommendations), however, this uses an excessive amount of fuel, and an extra charge of €8/hr will be added to your trip cost.
Please speak with your captain if you have any questions at all about the air conditioning and/or generator.
