    Another vote for Caframo which are excellent compared with any others I've seen. We have a Bora in our cabin and the open bladed ones in other cabins including one on a roving lead for the cockpit and boosting in the galley area. We easily sleep with them but in the V berth, where it is mounted under a cupboard, I had to play around with some padding in the mount to get rid of some resonance with the wood.
    I've bought all mine on trips to the US when they used to be quite cheap but exchange rates have pretty much wiped out the advantage over the last year or so.

    Caframo for longevity and current draw. Two of my six year old Caframo Boras have been on 24/7 pretty much every day this summer in Southern Spain and the Balearics.
    Yes, they are a little noisey. Fine for the saloon if you don't sleep there. My wife is fine with the Caframo Sirocco above our bunk but it wakes me, so a winter project is to add some truly silent computer fans to waft a cooling breeze over the bunk.
    And the Boras are a pain to clean. Bits of damp rag round a stick (like a big cotton bud) works, but disassembley is needed from time to time.
