12 Volt DC Watermaker Build your own
I am very fortunate to own two boats and live in Sunny south Florida. All the systems on my 42’ sailboat I've designed and built myself, and I saved a fortune, including a 40-gallon per hour watermaker. The plans for that are listed on Sellfy under Build Your Own Watermaker and save $$$$$. It’s the one with a picture of a watermaker and not the other one. Last year I purchased a 36’ power cruiser as my wife and I not only want to sail but we also want to explore the ICW (Intracoastal Waterway). My sailboat with her 58’ 6” bridge clearance and a draft of 5’ makes it hard to travel the ICW which is why I bought a power cruiser. We wanted all the comforts of home like we have on our sailboat so I decided to build another watermaker for the cruiser. This way we don’t have to frequent a marina for water. I don't care for the water at most marinas anyway. We are spoiled, as you will be after having a watermaker aboard. As I have limited space in the engine room and only carry 47 gallons of water I wanted a smaller, more compact, and modular watermaker. I also didn’t want to over-work the generator so I decided on a 12 Volt DC system with a 6 gallon per hour output. I built this watermaker for under $1575.00 and I’ll show you how. You get everything you need to build this very simple watermaker. Pictures, complete parts list, and step-by-step instructions. This Watermaker is so easy to build even a Cave Man could do it.
