Extend your boating season into the colder months with a BoatSafe® heater. These thermostatically controlled heaters automatically turn on at approximately 45°F to ensure that the air temperature in your engine room remains above freezing. This releases you from the need to winterize your engine and enables you to enjoy the water after others have quit! BoatSafe heaters meet U.S. Coast Guard requirements with a safe, energy-efficient design that presents no risk of contact burns.

Features include a footprint choice option that enables mounting in any orientation. Heater cycles on at 45°F and off at 55°F. Forced air heat gently warms engine compartment surfaces.This model is for boats 24 feet or less and engine compartments to 150cu.ft. Boats stored out of the water, twin-engine boats or single-engine boats with a generator should use a larger model.

    Comments about Boatsafe 250W Marine Engine Compartment Heater:

    I have this heater in my engine compartment on my 30' Chapparal Signature. While the temperatures reached into the low 20's last night, the engine room temperature never got below 45 degrees. It completely eliminates the need for winterizing, allowing me to use the boat all year. Best investment for my boat.
