Jeanneau 43 - "Breeze"

Keith was having charging problems with his 43-foot Jeanneau DS, Breeze. It was a new boat that didn’t have a proper charging system, and the house power would run down after just one night at anchor. So he went online to find a service provider and was impressed with Pacific Yacht Systems’ website; his first impression was confirmed when he saw their professionalism in conducting business.

PYS installed a new battery system, along with a Balmar smart external regulator, resulting in faster recharging when the boat’s engine system is running. They also installed a Xantrex Linklite Battery Monitor so that Keith knows exactly what the house batteries are doing. This allows him to anchor out for as long as he wants, instead of having to moor the boat every time the power was low.

"Having a new charging system has made a lot of difference in the way I use my boat," says Keith. "Now I don’t have to go to a dock every time a need power—I can get it off my engine, which means I can stay at anchor as long as I want."

When the work was completed, PYS went over the system with Keith from start to finish. He has recommended PYS to other boaters because “they run a good company.”
