“The only rea­son I am not cry­ing right now is be­cause we have a Stella Sys­tems Airtronic diesel heater” said Sasha, as she and Mike came to terms with the fact that their de­par­ture from Auck­land to the warm azure wa­ters of Fiji would be de­layed a fur­ther two weeks.

Cosy and warm in­side their sail­ing yacht, nurs­ing com­mis­er­a­tion beers they re­played the day’s events; a cold June morn­ing had turned into warm cel­e­bra­tions as their brand-new Stella Sys­tems Airtronic diesel heater (top left) was switched on for the first time. Warm, dry air filled the boat, trans­form­ing the sa­loon and their sleep­ing berth (right) into a cosy homely abode – this year’s off-shore pas­sage would be a mighty com­fort­able one. But later that day a rig check had re­sulted in bad news, new cap shrouds would be re­quired be­fore their alu­minium cy­ber-cata­ma­ran MOONFISH (bot­tom right) could sail north to the win­ter­less South Pa­cific. Af­ter years of liv­ing aboard en­joy­ing end­less sum­mers, Mike and Sasha were re­ally feel­ing Auck­land’s chilly June weather, some­thing had to be done. It was an easy de­ci­sion to choose a Stella Sys­tems Airtronic diesel heater; it runs in­de­pen­dently from the en­gine, and un­like wa­ter based heat­ing sys­tems was quick to in­stall, uses less power and gen­er­ates heat al­most in­stan­ta­neously. All key fac­tors when you need to be warm on the hook or while sail­ing. Whether you want to ex­tend your boat­ing sea­son in New Zealand, or just keep the fam­ily warm while you en­joy a spot of fish­ing, give Ian at IMARINE NZ a call, he’ll get you sorted.
