Watermakers

$8,066.88$13,392.00

Our Stella watermakers make a lot of water fast! 80-240 litres per hour with our AC and engine driven units. When it comes to making water “the quicker the better” so you don’t have to do it every day or for long periods. With the simplicity, quality components and lack of electronics comes unequalled reliability, critical when cruising.

They are modular (that means they come as separate components rather than a complete unit in a large framed box) so they can be fitted wherever there is available space. Stella watermakers also use no electronics, just simple control valves for reliability.

Proudly designed and manufactured in Australia.

We have different types of watermakers avaliable:

AC powered unit (Electric 240v-AC)

The first option for most buyers, the Electric 240V-AC is easy to install and makes plenty of water fast. You will need a minimum 3kVa (continuously rated) genset to run the 240V-AC electric unit. For larger powerboats, yachts and catamarans with a suitable sized AC genset. AC units require an inverter or generator to run. Always the first option, easy installation and makes lots of water fast. You will need a minimum 3.5kva (continuously rated) genset to run our 240v-AC electric unit. Output is 80, 160 or 210 litres per hour of water using 1, 2 or 3 standard membranes. Power usage (LP and HP pump) is approx. 12amps when running (without start-up load).

DC powered unit (Electric DC35 12/24v-DC)

Because of the relatively low power consumption these models are popular with cruising yachts when combined with a solar panel, and can essentially be set-up to run automatically whenever the sun shines. This is an ideal solution in the tropics, since the sun shines more and the reverse osmosis process is more efficient when the system is warmer.

12/24v DC motor driving the high pressure pump instead of 240v-AC motor, 12v-DC motor draw approx. 32 amps

  • Jabsco 12v DC low pressure pump (316SS head) instead of 240 volt AC (uses approx. 8 amps)
  • Uses a 21” membrane instead of a 40” membrane – Dimension with bracket 67cm x 18cm
  • Power consumption 38 amps producing 35 litres per hour 

Constellation 60

For sailing yachts, catamarans and small powerboats. The last option if you don’t have a genset or suitable motor with room to mount a bracket. A smaller motor and high pressure pump means less water output but our 12 volt systems have been a huge success. You will need a good source of 12v power and you may need to run an engine while making water to top up batteries. 19A @ 12v 60 litres per hour our most efficient DC watermaker, the best amps consumption per litre of water production of any watermaker available.

  • Auto flush standard
  • Quiet operation
  • Simple to install

According to Stella, this makes the Constellation 60 one of the world’s most efficient 12v-DC watermakers in terms of producing the most water for the least amount of power consumed.

Engine Driven unit (ED80, ED160, ED240)

An excellent option for those without a generator, this system is a very efficient and reliable and also produces good volumes of water quickly. It does require sufficient space around the engine for the high-pressure pump and take-off belt. For powered vessels this is possibly the most sensible option, as the engine will run regularly.

The energy absorbed by the water pump is relatively low compared to a typical diesel’s output, and hence it would have very little discernible effect on performance. But it does mean that the main engine would need to run to make water, and hence an auxiliary engine could be used to drive the pump instead.

Larger boats could possibly have a standalone watermaker powered by its own auxiliary engine.

Our engine driven units are the same price and specs as our electric 240vAC units but with:

  • 12v-DC electromagnetic clutch with single A-section pulley (approx. 2HP draw from motor) mounted to high pressure pump instead of electric motor (22cm x 17cm x 22cm)
  • Jabsco 12v-DC low pressure pump (316SS head) instead of 240v-AC (uses approx. 8 amps)
