Dometic Marine created a new version of its innovative Sealand RushFlush toilet to suit the specific requirements of Viking Yachts.

The custom-made, residential-style version of the RushFlush toilet has been fitted into Viking’s new 62-foot model.

Following the collaboration, the renowned builders of luxury performance sport-fishing and cruising yachts will now be looking to expand its use of the RushFlush toilet into other future models.

The need for a different version of the toilet arose due to space restrictions in certain areas of the Viking 62.

Adam Baker, Regional Sales Manager at Dometic Marine, said, “Viking tested our RushFlush on their 70-ft demo boat last year and the trial process was a success. After the test, Viking spec’d our RushFlush toilet on their new 62 Convertible.

“Initially, we only had an elongated-profile version of the RushFlush, but the Viking 62 required a residential-style version on two of the heads due to space restrictions, while one head would use the original version.

“To accommodate their needs, we have created a new version of the RushFlush style which uses the 4600 flat-back bowl.”

Dometic Sealand’s RushFlush toilet series uses high-velocity water jets to macerate and flush waste, while also delivering easy plug-and-play installation and premium comfort.

Incorporating a pre-assembled integral trap-way and discharge loop, the RushFlush takes 50-75% less time to install compared with competing high-flow toilet systems. As with all non-mechanical macerating systems, risk of failure of the RushFlush is significantly reduced, while freshwater flushing capability eliminates plumbing system maintenance issues which are typically associated with raw/sea water systems.

The RushFlush toilet is a full-size, residential-style toilet with large, deep bowl and elongated seat, providing users with exceptional comfort. The toilet can be fitted with an electric handle or a wall-mounted touchpad for flushing.
