hi Richard
the Belair that used to run out of sabena had a full size whirlpool bath or somthing of that type. did not try it my self, but her indoors did. it took ages to fill and acording to her it went cold rather quick. not suprised at that though she has a large skin area. plus when she pulled the plug, a 3ft bore went hurtling down stream from Acle towards Yaremouth.

All the boats we've hired with baths have been "sit baths", they've had a little seat to sit on slightly higher than the bottom of the bath.  It was great as a kid - and with my three would be a godsend now.  My Mum loves them.  And if you like showers it's great because you have much more room.  I think one of the Alpha new ones (probably Rapide) has a whirlpool or something, if my memory serves me right!  Its been a while since we had a boat with a bath but I cant remember it ever being a problem with water.

Thumbs up for baths on boats!

We have a bath on our Calypso 28. It's brilliant and wouldn't change it even though it does take up more room than a shower. It's not a full size bath but I can just about stretch my legs out straight and I'm 6 feet tall. I wouldn't say that it uses a great deal of water either because by the time you fill it with 3 or 4 inches of water and get in it, it is nearly at the top. Probably uses less water that some people that like to stand under the shower for 10 minutes!

Hi All,

We have four boats in the Key-holder scheme with full-size baths (our 42-footer has two) and yes, our Bel Air does have a whirlpool bath - which works very well, provided you've cruised for a little while before you use it so that theres enough inverter power!

Baths on boats are fine, provided you have an upgraded water heating system - even if you only use them for cleaning up the little ones!

I am sure that the Admiral (from Brooms -caught the steam train from Liverpool St.) we hired when I was three (and earlier at 16mths) - late 1950s had a bath.  The old catalogues would probably say.

We once hired a two person boat from a yard in wroxham (name of both escapes me) with a full bathroom suite in... burgandy or maroon (very 1970s).

It took up a lot of room on the boat but you couldnt get enough water for a bath.  The shower was sited to the end with less headroom, which made showering a right PITA oh, and the proper flushing bog filled the sewage tank PDQ.

my new boat is being designed with a 1600mm corner whirlpool. I've looked at several heating options the most likely being a dedicated calorifier running in series after the main with an immersion back up for shore power use. At 220w the circ pump is not a major issue, I work it that I can have four minutes in the whirlpool for the cost of one in the microwave  Playful Wink

The original schematic allowed a bathroom of 1800x1250mm, in order to accommodate the bath and WC we have had to go to 2100x1250, the "overspend" in size will probably mean a smaller dinette, but I do have 70 feet to play with so I'm sure I can save a foot somewhere.

Regards

Paul
