Important Reminder about Generator Usage

During the evenings in Greece, the temperature generally drops and there are comfortable 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. However, there are situations where air conditioning can make your experience more comfortable (during heat waves, stagnant air, etc). The Saona 47 is equipped with an air conditioning system, however, unlike land-based accommodations there are some limits to its use. Below are a few important notes about A/C usage to keep the system running well:

  • If the yacht is connected to a power supply, the use of A/C is usually not a problem, although we try to limit usage to only when needed (excess wear and tear can damage the system).
  • If the yacht is not connected to a power supply (some islands don’t have a power supply or you may anchor inside a port), the generator will be needed to run the A/C. Because of the manufacturer’s recommendations and high fuel costs in Greece we can usually only run the generator between 3-5 hours maximum per day.

That being said, we do try to be as accommodating as possible so please speak with your captain if you have any questions at all.
