Except at mid-day in summer, I find the one unit sufficient to keep the boat comfortable - but then I don't like icebox levels of aircon and we live in shorts and T-shirts.

Cheers
Perfect experienced response thank you.

The 12000 cools the aft master and the pilot house, and the 16000 the galley, saloon, and the forward if needed. I can't see ya haveing any problems, except maybe the ducting and that such of thing ! Just my 2 cents. And we live in south Louisiana and have high heat and humidity.
Another perfect experienced response thank you.
