Cooking across the Atlantic

29 November 2012 13:33:51 GMT

Read how the crew of Chiscos, a Warrior 40 skippered by John Simpson, cooked their way across the Atlantic.  Written by crew member Julia Horner, the article is a great source of information for anyone planning an Atlantic crossing.

Chiscos is kitted out with a Paguro 4000 generator, Dessalator D60 Cruise watermaker and Studer XTM 2000 inverter/charger.

"Advance Yacht fitted a watermaker and a generator to our Warrior 40 'Chiscos' during the spring of 2011 in preparation for us doing the ARC  and an Atlantic circuit in 2011/2012.
The sound advice before fitting the equipment, and subsequent workmanship during the fitting were outstanding.
Having these two pieces of equipment fitted has transformed our long distance cruising. We had abundant power from the quiet, economical generator and plenty of water, allowing the whole crew to shower every day.
I cannot thank Rod, Caroline and Wayne enough for their efficient and very professional service.

London Boat Show Review

17 January 2012 10:29:16 GMT

Thank you to all who visited our stand at London Boat Show. It was great to be able spend time talking to prospective customers in detail about their projects and to have a good chat with our existing customers. 

The show saw the launch of the new 9000V and 12000V variable speed generators from Paguro. Incredibly light and compact, these generators are extremely quiet and smooth running. In addition, as we have just been appointed the new Distributor for Westerbeke generators in UK, we also had a lovely red Westerbeke 5.7 EDT, featuring D-NET on display.

Our generator and inverter packages, coupling a Studer Xtender (the most advanced bi-directional converter on the market) in parallel with a generator, were of great interest; not only have we been supplying and installing these systems for over 6 years, we have one on our own boat, so have a lot of experience; all good!  

There was a lot of interest in the Cristec range of battery chargers, shore-power units and associated power management equipment.  Having recently been appointed UK distributor for this major brand, we are delighted to announce that the reputation that Cristec have for high quality at a good price has resulted in them winning Bavaria Yachtbau as a customer. Cristec are already the battery charger of choice for many major boat builders and vehicle manufacturers: Jeannuea, Beneteau, Dufour, Alubat, Delphia, J Boats, Zodiac, Suzuki, Falk, Renault Ambulances.

Our Dessalator watermakers proved popular as ever and the stylish new fully automatic digital remote panel for the PRO series drew lots of attention from our regular trade buyers.

Don't forget, if you didn't place your order with us during the show, you have until 31 January to contact us with your deposit and take full advantage of these fantastic prices.
