Customer Testimonial: 
Sail & Power



My wife and I have been customers of Ocean Link for many years. We own a 60 foot voyaging sailboat (photo above) and have made almost 30 trips of 1500 miles+ back and forth to the Caribbean. Our boat has 4 heads, so you can imagine the number of plumbing projects that can present.  


We’ve always been able to count on Ocean Link to keep the systems fully operational. In addition, they have provided excellent support for our watermaker and its systems.

Last year we had a much more involved project on our hands when we gutted and refurbished the interior of our 32 foot powerboat.

Most of this work was done while we were sailing in the Bahamas and the Caribbean. We turned the entire plumbing project over to Ocean Link. Terri and her staff visited the boat, understood our requirements, and put together a comprehensive package to meet our needs. They implemented the entire program flawlessly.

We had a wonderful summer experimenting with our new powerboat. The systems they installed worked perfectly.

If you want a thorough and professional plumbing job done your boat, we can highly recommend Ocean Link.

Greetings! Sunset Sailing

We’ve been so busy here at Ocean Link that we haven’t had much time on the water ourselves, but we hope you’re out there enjoying the season!


If you’re having problems with any of your systems, be sure to give us a call at 401 683-4434 so we can get things working properly for you once again. 


Happy Summer!

5 Critical Things to Know
BEFORE Buying a
Marine Air Conditioning System



We are proud to offer the most trusted, best designed, and most reliable air conditioning systems on the market – Dometic Marine’s Cruisair brand.

CruisairSelfContainedAC Buying a marine air conditioning system is not – and should not be – something you do often. If you purchase wisely you will own a system that lasts many years and functions with reliability that keeps you and your passengers comfortable year round.

However, not all air conditioning systems are created equal. Be sure the system you choose comes from a manufacturer with a long history of producing marine-rugged air conditioning and a reputation for quality innovations.

Consider these 5 critical factors when buying an efficient, environmentally friendly air conditioning system that is also a pleasure to use: 

  1. Optimized Marine Design for Maximized Efficiency
  2. Confirm Proper HVAC System Sizing
  3. Reduce Noise
  4. Improve Air Quality
  5. Trust Proven Brand
