The use of airconditioning is different on every yacht. Some of them have a 24/7 system where others have a rule that at midnight the airconditioning goes off. Generators are operated for aircon, freezers and fridges as well. There is a limited use of generators in ports due to the sound thay make and they might disturb neighboring boats at night. When requesting A/C on during the night time, this may or may not be possible. A/C may be available if you are anchored in a bay and there are not many boats around. Speak to your captain regarding this subject to make arrangements accordingly and as per your agreement for number of hours of use of A/C.
