Watermakers for boats are now compact, efficient and so reliable that everyone considering an extended trip should plan to install one.
The fuel saved by not carrying the extra weight of water could easily recoup the initial investment, and there is the benefit of not being tied to the capacity of your tanks. But the range of options is extensive, so here’s the low-down.
Although they’re commonly called marine watermakers, the more correct term is a marine desalinator. These units remove the salt from seawater and produce drinkable water. Most cruising boats built after 2000 will have a water maker installed, and thanks to reducing costs and size, retrofitting a boat desalinator one on a coastal boat has become a viable option.
Although a boat desalinator does not replace a freshwater tank, a watermaker does allow for a marked reduction in the size of a boat’s primary water tank and all going well, a luxury many people will enjoy — endless showers.
There are a number of reputable manufacturers of watermakers suitable for marine installations. The first decision is which power system to use. Although power consumptions vary depending on model, electrical units seem to use somewhere between 10 and 20 watts per litre. So a 250lt/h marine watermaker unit may draw around 10amp at 220V; a smaller 12V unit is likely to produce somewhere around 30lt/h and draw in the order of 20amp.
