Villaboat International, a leading manufacturer of luxury houseboats, selected Dometic Marine as its preferred supplier of marine air-conditioning and sanitation systems.

As part of the new agreement, Dometic Marine’s HVAC and sanitation equipment will be listed as an option on all new-build houseboats. The first installation is set to take place in April.

“As a manufacturer of boats that offer all of the luxuries of a home away from home, it was important that we found a reliable partner that could provide premium on-board systems suitable for year-round operation,” Villaboat COO Christian Schwartau said in a statement.
