Why Do Boat Owners Need Water Makers?

Boat owners need water makers because people on the boat need clean drinking water. Indeed, fresh water is not only good for drinking, but also for cooking and cleaning purposes.


Depending on the size of the boat, number of people aboard, and amount of time the boat will be out cruising on the water, away from land, a marine water maker can be an invaluable way to add drinking water to your water tanks at the flip of a switch.


Water makers cleverly use a process called “reverse osmosis” to make water. Water makers use high-pressure, pump-driven reverse osmosis systems to desalinate water, converting sea water and/or brackish water to ready-to-drink water fit for human consumption.


Humans on boats for extended periods of time couldn’t survive drinking sea water, which has too much salt in it to be of any good to the human body.


Water makers, therefore, are often essential systems used on yachts, sailboats and other vessels operating in brackish and/or sea water environments.


Cruise RO Water and Power understands the challenges of powering a large capacity water maker aboard a boat. That’s why Cruise RO came up with the smart idea of designing SeaMaker 20 and 30 gallon per hour water makers to operate on the power produced by the Honda EU2000i generator. Affordable for all, Cruise RO’s water makers can make 100-150 gallons of water using a single gallon of gas. And that means good stuff: daily showers for the crew (thankfully!), fresh water deck and gear wash-downs while at anchor, and, of course, plenty of clean water to drink.
