Beneteau USA announced that Dometic Marine's SailVac Vacuum Holding Tank system is now listed as an option for several of its yachts.

"Today people are generally more environmentally conscious, wanting to ensure they live in a green and good way, and sailors in particular are ahead of anyone else on that," Wayne Burdick, president of Beneteau USA, said in a statement.

"The integration of Dometic's SailVac Vacuum Holding Tank aboard our boats adds a significant extension to cruising time for sailors so that they don't have to worry about getting to pumpout facilities as often, enabling them to enjoy the ocean for much longer," he added.

In developing the SailVac, Dometic Marine's engineering team worked with Beneteau USA to design a product that met the yacht builder's requirements for a modern and efficient toilet and holding tank system that fitted the footprint of its mid-size sailboats.

Due to the electrical, freshwater and space restrictions of sailboats, it has not previously been possible to install a toilet and holding tank system similar to those enjoyed aboard powerboats of the same size, the company said.
