For Sale: Spectra Cape Horn Extreme Watermaker

We are selling our Spectra Cape Horn Extreme Watermaker (12V). Touted to be one of the best, most reliable watermakers on the market, it has the following features:
  • redundant dual feed pumps for maximum reliability;
  • simple analog control panel;
  • compact modular design;
  • high and low speed operation for customisable management and output volume;
  • very quiet and very low power consumption (ours was powered by our batteries, charged by solar and wind, and so no need to be a noisy neighbour with generator and noisy pumps when you are in a quiet anchorage);
  • commercial grade diaphragm pumps with run dry protection (particularly helpful on a catamaran);
  • system includes installation kit, handheld water quality tester and product sample valve.
  • Our system was professionally installed new in June 2015 for the ARC+ 2015 and half World ARC 2016-17. It proved to be extremely reliable and worked perfectly, with minimal requirement for maintenance for the whole crossing, consistently producing up to 70l/hour. It is well-maintained but we now no longer need it as we are coastal sailing only for the time being.

    We are based in NZ, but will have it professionally removed and packaged, can pickle the membrane and ship worldwide.

    We also have the Offshore Spares Kit (unused) and will include new filters.

    Price: GBP3,500 (+ shipping)

    --Bottom paint and normal bottom job needed soon. Hull is sound, just sanding and painting needed. Will include bottom paint with sale.

    --Kohler 8kw genset probably needs a minor check-up. It runs well, but rarely used because of extra-large solar panels.

    --House batteries need checking for possible replacement within the next year or so. Sale price adjusted for this.

    --Anchor rode (chain) has some age on it consistent with normal use. Needs checked and/or replaced before further extended use.

    A few interior upgrades, such as nice sound system and LCD tv make the boat live-aboard ready. Nespresso machine included.

    Hi there sailors,
    Are there anyone here who has experience with the purchase of sail in the Far East, with delivery to Palma, Majorca?
    My boat,Amelie d'Oslo is as the name says belonging to the port of Oslo and are registered in NOR (Norwegian ordinary ship registry).
    What I trying to accomplish is something they call delivery to: Yacht in transit and in that way avoid European WAT.
    I've heard that they practice the rules differ from place to place despite universal European regulations.
    So i fanyone can help me with her/his experience it would have been invaluable to me.
