The Ship’s Systems feature of the latest issue of Marlin Magazine (March ’15) covers the brilliance of having an on board watermaker that uses reverse osmosis technology to turn salty sea water into pure potable water that is actually cleaner than most municipal and dock water supplies!
The World’s Largest Watering Hole
With a Watermaker, the Ocean Becomes a Limitless Supply of Freshwater
Once considered an extravagant option aboard a sport-fishing boat, watermakers are pretty much standard equipment today, with many boats even utilizing two units. Having a steady supply of potable water to shower, cook, live aboard and wash the boat with at the end of the day is a huge benefit. Converting salt water to fresh via the reverse-osmosis process gives you virtually mineral-free water, so it is far less damaging to topcoat finishes and Isinglass curtains than city or dock water. It’s also better for ice machines and the entire freshwater system. (more…)
Newly Formed Company’s Innovative Products & Features Take Reverse Osmosis to Next Level
Led by industry veteran Chris Rollins, recently formed Blue Water Desalination (BWD) will debut the finest selection of reverse osmosis desalination systems to the marine market at the Miami International Boat Show, February 13 – 17, 2014. In space S66 on the main convention center show floor, show attendees can see for themselves why this new class of leading edge watermakers will leave their competitors in their wake.
BWD will showcase three distinct lines of watermakers at the show – the Legend, the Explorer and the Express. The benchmark Legend series features an industry leading 7” touchscreen control panel, with fully-automatic operation. The Explorer offers semi-automatic operation in a wide range of capacities to fit the needs of most mid to large sized yachts. The Legend and Explorer models offer capacities from 475 gallons per day to 1850 gallons per day, while the Express series offers capacities of between 200 gallons per day and 800 gallons per day in a compact design to fit the tight spaces of small and mid-sized yachts.
