I did not contact anyone. I performed a BTU calculation on the main cabin, it is quite small so the smallest a/c unit 5000 - 6000 BTU would work. I was going to install myself. I looked at photos on this site for where the unit/return would be located. If I recall, it was either in the bottom of the hanging locker or under the starboard settee. The outlets can be run from a common duct that runs around the cabin in the storage area under the seats with small ducts mounted in the horizontal surface, between the port lights. Also need to run a raw water line and install a new thru hull for water outlet.

    Thanks for the additional info. I would assume that the raw water line will require a pump, or would it just continuously flow to keep the unit cool? Just to make the info complete, will need to ensure that condensation drains to the bilge.

    Hopefully, I can find a boat with AC installed.

    I believe the raw water pump is part of the a/c unit. Good question about the condensate, I do not know where it goes.. It would be a lot easier to find a boat with factory a/c.
