Kim Parley – Case Study

 

Kim Parley has been involved in the marine industry for over a decade. As Business Development Manager for the Pacific Northwest region at AdvanTec Global Innovations, Kim represents some of the top brands in the marine closure and crane industries including Diamond Sea Glaze, Freeman Marine, Steelhead Marine, and Pacific Coast Marine. Kim is also a part time realtor in the Greater Vancouver area.

 

Kim recently purchased a 32’ 3288 Bayliner, and proceeded to engage Pacific Yacht Systems in Vancouver, BC for an electrical audit. Pacific Yacht Systems found that the onboard electrical system was subpar for the vessel and he was highly recommended to upgrade to an inverter with a built-in charger and to install a battery monitor to be able to properly monitor his electrical system.

Pacific Yacht Systems replaced the current Xantrex X-Power inverter only which was in service since 2006 with a new generation Freedom SW 2000W inverter charger and a LinkPRO Battery Monitor. Pacific Yacht Systems also added a Xantrex Digital Echo Charger to charge starting batteries.

 

The new electrical system enables Kim  to have reliable onboard AC power for electronics and appliances and the ability to charge batteries quickly and efficiently when the shorepower is available. The system also offers a lot of flexibility for future modifications, for example system expansion, addition of lithium ion batteries to name a few.
