Watermaker

Watermakers Add Safety, Convenience, Value

Boats are a lot like homes: upgrades and enhancements add to their comfort and livability, and increase their value. FCI Watermakers explores how adding a watermaker to a vessel is an investment that pays dividends in terms of safety and convenience, and sets it apart when it's time to sell. The ability to make pure, fresh water while at sea is liberating. Gone are the days of water frugality. With a watermaker, there's more than enough for drinking, bathing, cooking and refilling supplies. And in case of mechanical trouble far from the nearest port, it can be a real lifesaver. It's a stretch to say that a watermaker improves boat performance, but less stored water means reduced weight. This translates into decreased fuel consumption for motoryachts and sportfishers, and improved speed made good for sailboats. The vessel's range is extended to open up a whole new set of destinations. Costing as much as a new multifunction electronics package or set of sails, a watermaker is a serious purchase. Yet, unlike some equipment that depreciates as soon as it's put into service, quality units are built to last for years with only minimal maintenance. They can even save money when visiting a marina that charges for fresh water. A quick review of any used boat website reveals that vessels that are impeccably maintained and continually upgraded to high standards command premium prices
