Currently helping a friend who is purchasing a N46.. there is a N46 for sale
(Tigerbalm) in Thailand with two mini split systems on board.. the main cabin roof has both outdoor units mounted on it.. no worse looking that a propane locker or life raft.
With the exception of the god awful indoor air handler they are a nice unit..
(although they are available with hidden ducted air handlers for additional $) No clogging of the ac seawater lines with grasses or critters for those in high fouling areas would be really great. Might need to do additional vibration dampening if mounted above the main cabin though.

Mini splits are available all the way up to 22SEER and are the most efficient air source units available
