My wife had life threatening allergies and simply could not live with mold or dirty air, diesel fumes or any other smell scared her. We lived onboard for twenty years and never had a single spot of mold, drop of water in the bilge or any smell in the boat whatsoever. We had many strategies for this over the years but for the last seven years we found the easiest solution .... On our 43' boat we had two Heaven Fresh Air Purifiers. These units have HEPA filters, ion generator, UV filter, carbon filter and an ozone generator. These ran 24hrs a day except for the ozone which was turned on only when we left the boat. These units worked extremely well for us and made my work in keeping the boat habitable for my wife much easier.
