Whale is delighted to announce it has been included in Boating Industry’s 2015 Top Products listing for the second year running. This year the Whale 12 V Water Heater was recognized for its innovative design. The annual product listing receives hundreds of submissions and the editorial team at Boating Industry chose the top products based on many factors including their impact on the industry, innovation and how they have advanced their category.
The Whale 12 V Water Heater is an innovative solution for hot water onboard. It is lightweight and compact making it ideal for use on outboards and smaller boats where access to power or space can be restricted. The Water Heater connects to 12 V power supply eliminating any need for a generator, inverter or shore power. With rapid heat up times providing hot water in less than an hour and high efficiency heat retention of up to 10 hours, the 12 V Water Heater is a quick and easy way to achieve hot water when you need it most.
Keith Nixon, Commercial Director Marine and Industrial commented –
“The Whale team is excited to be included in the Boating Industry Top Product List 2015 with the 12 V 3 Gal Heater. From conception to production, this product has been focused on providing a solution for water heating on outboard boats, without generator sets. The market shift from sterndrive challenged us to provide a product where engine coolant was not available. For Whale, providing a 12 V solution allows for easy integration, either upgrading an existing freshwater system or providing boat manufacturers with a new option for water heating onboard. This accolade highlights Whale’s continued innovation in all fields of water system management”
