*A Note About AC Electric Cabin Heaters and Water Heaters

Electric cabin heaters and water heaters can only be used while the yacht is connected to shore power. Diesel cabin heaters can be used away from shore. The electrical wiring for Liberty's climate control system is isolated from the rest of her electrics and requires a second shore power connection in order to power up.

Important: All MSC yachts have an electric space heater that plugs into an 110v outlet aboard, but these can only be used while the yacht is connected to shore power. If a boat has a 110v inverter, using a space heater away from shore may be technically possible, but is not permitted because it will drain the batteries very quickly, possibly leading to battery damage.

To learn more about power management while away from shore, be sure to read the article Marine Battery Care and Power Management Basics in the Member Resources section of our website.

Testimonials

  • Casey Bishop, Corporate Regatta

    WE LOVED IT! The whole team was so honored and thankful. Thanks so much for all of your team's hard work and excellence in organizing our party. Of the 22 of us, only 4 had ever been sailing and not in the Bay. The guys had an incredible experience, the skippers were all really great, allowing each of us to be at the wheel. They were kind and empowering. Plus the weather and wind were perfect! It was definitely one of the top 3 experiences that we have shared as leaders in the past 5 + years. We couldn't have asked for a better day!

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.

  • John Boynton

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.
