Every newbuild model of Sunseeker is being offered with a range of filter systems from Wave International to ensure boat owners can access bacteria-free fresh water onboard whilst protecting the marine environment.
The Wave International filter systems are either offered as standard or, on the smaller models, as an option. The majority are fitted with the Flostream HiFlo10 drinking water filters to galleys and wetbars and the standard Flostream unit to icemakers. All boats, excluding superyachts, built to the CE standard feature Wavestream System 2 bilge filter systems.
“We fit the Flostream filters for the water coming onto our yachts for drinking, ice or food preparation,” said Jon Robins, engineering design manager at Sunseeker. “Bilge water is also filtered prior to being pumped overboard with the Wavestream filter fitted before the bilge outlet. These easy-to-install, cartridge filter systems ensure that all traces of dirt, oil, contaminants or chemicals are removed before any water is pumped overboard; a really important step in ensuring we minimise the boat’s environmental impact.”
Sunseeker worked with Wave’s UK distributor Halyard (M&I) Ltd to build the filters into its production models.
“Cartridges only need changing every 12 months or so, depending on use, but using them will protect the environment for ever,” stated David Johnson, sales director at Halyard.
The filter systems can also be retrofitted.
