Heating system Swan 48
does anybody know if there was a orignial way or a drawing where to put the pipes of the heating system, the exhaust, etc..
We have some remaining signs of a former existing heating system but we would like to renew it in the next weeks.
Any information on that would be helpful!

supposing that while not having the drawings, some experience with installing a heating on a 48 might help ...
We installed a new heating system two years ago. In preparation, I found all the holes that were intended for the air ducts on the port side of the boat. They have diameters of about 10-11 cm. Starting (or ending) at the aft bulkhead under the port berth in the aft cabin (see pic), they lead forward to the front cabin. If needed, I can post more pictures, but provided Themis has the same arrangement, you will find them.
So I installed a water-based heating (in the stern locker) with four separate heat exchangers (and fans) in the aft cabin, the saloon, the front head and the front cabin. The tubes for the water circuit make use of the holes for the old air ducts. That will not help you, but if you need any pictures of the installation or how the heating unit is installed in the locker, let me know.
Best regards from Bremen,
openings for the air ducts under the portside bunk in the aft cabin
