These systems have now reached even small sizes but with great water production. Silent and reliable, they allow you to produce a water reserve for every need even on board. At this time of year, when the boat holiday is sought after and appreciated because it allows you to enjoy your holiday in freedom and away from crowds, boat desalinators keep you away from ports. Desalinators and filters are the ideal solution for having a reserve of water on board, both for use in the kitchen and bathroom, but also for washing the deck.

HP Watermakers / Genius

The HP Genius water filter removes all traces of chlorine and intercepts a large number of pollutants that can contaminate fresh water on board as it travels. In addition, the bacteriostatic treatment system with silver ions sterilises the water at the point of delivery, eliminating any bacteria that may be present in the boat’s tank.
