Gentlemen, I am about to purchase a 47 ft trawler and it doesn't currently have A/C or heat. I have perused the different types available on line and my question is : would an in roof 'RV type' system do the trick or would it be advisable to spend the extra and get a water cooled, ducted type deal ? My wife doesn't handle heat or humidity too well and the craft will be used in the Gulf mostly with the occasional longer voyage after I semi retire....hahaha...

Thankyou !!!

Water-cooled marine unit (or two) depending upon how much volume you want to condition...make sure you have a generator that will provide the surge capacity to start the compressors, too...
