Viking Yachts builds the quintessence of well-appointed, high-performance sportfishing and motor yachts. The company's 92 and 75 both employ Delta "T" Systems' automatic marine head ventilation system to complement the distinctive experience of these vessels.
Owners and guests expect a level of quiet, understated luxury on a Viking, from the salon to the head. With this next-generation ventilation solution, they no longer have to contend with the noisy, annoying whine of a blower mounted in the lavatory. "Until Delta 'T' Systems' new centralized unit, we installed a vent fan in each head," said Peter Frederiksen, Viking Yachts marketing director. "It was simply too loud for our standards."
With the flip of a switch discretely mounted in the vanity, the highly-efficient system activates a remote fan and damper. Quickly, the air in the room is refreshed and the humidity removed. "Because the blower is located in another part of the boat, it's virtually silent," noted Frederiksen.
Delta "T" Systems offers optional sensors that automatically activate the system when someone enters the head. The venting remains running while the area is occupied, and several minutes thereafter.
Adaptable for OEMs, the system is easy to install, and very cost-effective. Dedicated 3" ducting can be run through overheads, within bulkheads or any place where it's convenient. A single, self-contained plenum box houses all of the major components and requires a minimal power draw. The single, powerful blower will run four heads; the use of dampers increases its efficiency. One exhaust port is used to vent the air, reducing visual clutter on the boat's exterior.
Delta "T" Systems has supplied Viking Yachts with its advanced products for 15 years. "We have a strong, long-term relationship with them," said Frederiksen. "We've been using Delta 'T' for engine ventilation for years—they've come up with some innovative solutions for us."
For 50 years, Viking yachts has led the industry in delivering luxury and speed, in a hull form that turns heads. It currently offers models ranging in length from 42'–92'.
Delta "T" Systems engineers and manufactures marine ventilation systems. The company produces axial fans, blowers, duct fans, controls, dampers, moisture eliminators, weather closures, vents, louvers and grills. Its equipment has been installed in over 14,000 vessels. It's also the exclusive authorized agent for Cranston-Eagle Marine Hooks in the US.
