The days of using limited on board potable water supplies to flush a toilet are at an end with Raritan Engineering's line of eight Marine Elegance™ electric toilets with the SeaFresh option. The patented system provides the user the option of using stored, or lake and sea water to operate, in a stylish, comfortable form that matches any boat's décor.

Few toilets are as adaptable to fitting as perfectly into a head compartment as the full-size, one-piece Marine Elegance. Made from gleaming white or almond vitreous china, two heights are available, each in a straight or angled back configuration.

The Marine Elegance boasts a unique mounting system with hidden hardware that provides an elegant, stylish appearance and allows for ease of cleaning. It has a compact installation with a small base that matches common footprint sizes.

The toilet empties through the floor, or optionally through a wall, and discharge connection is above deck for all models. The Marine Elegance features Vortex-Vac™ flush technology; it creates a vacuum to effectively clear the bowl with unmatched rinsing. A built-in loop design eliminate odors and maximizes bowl water. Its integrated shredder reduces clogs, while the pump moves waste 30.4m horizontally or 3m vertically. Even with all this power, its operation is whisper-quiet at only 63 decibels.

With the SeaFresh option, changing from pressurized fresh or sea water is as easy as flipping the switch on the small 38mm W x 76mm H control panel. A built-in check valve prevents raw water from backing up into stored potable supplies.

Four different controls are offered for the Marine Elegance. With the technologically advanced Smart Flush Control, users have complete control over the flushing sequence. Fully programmable, it provides the ability to dictate the amount of water used. Optionally, the toilet can be controlled with Raritan's new Bluetooth Flush Control. With the free Android and Apple app, users customize settings to optimize performance and water consumption, and view voltage input and current levels for the previous 250 flush cycles.

The Marine Elegance toilet measures 467mm L x 355mm W. The Standard model is 305mm H, while the Tall is 432mm H. It's available in 12V or 24V, and draws 30 or 20 amps, respectively.

Celebrating its 60th anniversary, Raritan offers a wide range of marine sanitation components and chemicals, water heaters, ice makers and related equipment. Customer-focused, the company addresses issues and ships parts within 24 hours.
