Largest TV - Request

All,

Could someone with a 450 F do me a favour please, and measure the WIDTH and HEIGHT of the space above the Credenza in the Salon. (where most people put their TV).

Metric or Imperial numbers fine, but would appreciate fair degree of accuracy (nearest mm if possible). especially on the gap HEIGHT.

Looking to see what size screen might fit, back mounted (frame), no stand plus some other stuff.

Much appreciated !

Regards

Re: Largest TV - Request

Absolute maximum (W x H) 1420 mm x 770 mm.

So looking at it 50 inch looks like the Max. it's the height that is limiting factor.

With removal of curtain and lighting track it may be possible to gain 15mm in height but then you would be wedged between top and bottom. 55 inch might just be an inch to far.

Re: Largest TV - Request

We have a 50inch tv already fitted and found a sony 55 inch that would fit.you should make sure that it is set back far enough to allow the side coupboard door to open fully.also the pop up tv might hit the tv but we dont use it

Re: Largest TV - Request

Personally don't believe in TVs on board a sailing vessel, just seems to go against the whole ethos of sailing. Just give me a good book (Kindle if you must) and a radio or recorded music.

Re: Largest TV - Request

Well guys, it's obviously not big TVs, expresso machines, ice cream makers, power winches and flybridges on Lagoon 450s.

A quintessential element of a "real" sailing vessel is an open cooking fire. Preferably on top of the ballast stones. Anything else is modern gadgetry that detracts from the pure experience of seaborne life.

Largest TV - Request

A lot of the TVs are actually 12v if you want that and use a "brick" to get to 12V, before I got our inverter I bought a TV with the brick, cut the brick off and wired it direct to the 12 VDC system, has worked fine for a couple of years, just of course be sure it is a 12VDC and not some other voltage I was concerned that 14.3 and higher voltages would kill it, but it worked fine at 15.5 V once.

all of what you said is true. But the Jensen 40 inch is the biggest 12 volt TV I have been able to find.. Most 12 volt TVs are small

Re: Largest TV - Request

How could anyone consider cruising with only a 50 inch TV as their main TV? 50 inches? Maybe in the crew's head but not in the boat's media room!!!

Re: Largest TV - Request

Thanks all,

Sailing is a Dream i'm making reality, but one that is actually practical.


The other is a pipe-dream, that many of us want, but will die of shock if it ever happens...
That being the ability to post a question on the Internet, and NOT have someone feel the intense need to chime in with their opinion as to why your request or desire is bad/wrong/not real / not {insert some contrary view}....

Appreciate the info on whats practical.

Regards

Yes, it would be difficult to fit and run a TV and guests on a 27ft vessel.

Lots of people take video and photos and a TV is a great way to share and edit particually dive video and photos with guests on board. Then again on that sized vessel you would be unlikely to carry scuba facilities.

Sailing can be a means for people to live on the water and move their view when the tire of a spot. For many sailing/boating whether by sail or powerboat is a means to an end not everything. Not all are crustry old salts.

Certainly if living aboard full time year around which is possible in many locations around the world having the LUXURY of a TV whilst not absolutely necessary is without doubt useful and thesedays commonplace. Have seen broadcasting navigation data linked to ships electronics often in recent times another use for that dastardly TV.
