- cheaper - centralized system shares some common components that would otherwise be multiplied with the independent system (cost savings estimated to be about $1000)
- saves space - fewer components means more space for other stuff
- more "efficient" layout - in the centralized system, the components can be placed in those "hard-to-reach" areas, under the main salon, that are unlikely to be accessed in "normal ship operation". This may make access to components difficult for repairs, but, hopefully repairs will not be a regular event (knock on fiberglass).
