Atwood's engineering, manufacturing and application expertise have been honed by time and the experience of supplying millions of water heaters to the recreation vehicle market for more than 30 years. Almost 20 years ago, Atwood applied this specialized knowledge to meet the needs of the marine industry. In doing so, we designed the water heaters that have become the standard in the boating industry.
Performance Atwood water heaters have been designed not only to heat water quickly and efficiently, but to also deliver every ounce of usable hot water possible from the tank. Atwood water heaters perform reliably, assuring customer satisfaction and full use of hot water benefits designed in your pleasure boats.
Safe and efficient heat exchangers To quickly heat water when under power, Atwood has developed efficient heat exchangers. Each heat exchanger is specifically designed for the water heater's capacity resulting in heat up times superior to competitive models. These heat exchangers ensure safety by using a unique double tube construction which prevents any possibility of engine coolant contaminating the fresh water system
Corrosion resistant construction The casing of every Atwood electric water heater is constructed from corrosion resistant materials and the non stainless steel models are carefully painted to stand up against the most corrosive marine environments. Special attention to detail on edges and corners helps assure greater handling safety. The Atwood tank is constructed of high strength aluminum core with a bonded corrosion fighting cladding material on the interior surface to assure a long life. This eliminates the need for an anode and it's annual replacement.
Designed for installation flexibility The cubic shape and lightweight aluminum-alloy tank offers greater flexibility for water heater location in floor plans.
Atwood marine water heaters offer substantial weight savings Through the years, Atwood has advanced the technology and the application of highly specialized aluminum alloys used in forming the tanks of our water heaters. This technology delivers superior tank life, while allowing us to maintain substantial weight savings over all competitive models and greater design flexibility in location of the water heater for boat manufacturers. All 110V marine water heaters have a recovery rate of 8.2 gallons per hour.
