Atlantes Freedom Provides Residential Comfort

Rariton Toilet

Aug 25, 2022

Many boat toilets have dimensions similar to a five-gallon bucket—and are nearly as uncomfortable. The Atlantes Freedom from Raritan Engineering offers residential-style comfort in both full household and elongated bowls, and the option for the familiarity of a traditional stainless steel flush handle. It’s available in white or bone to complement any classic or contemporary interior marine décor.

Made in the USA, the Atlantes Freedom is the original one-piece porcelain china marine toilet. Easy to clean and maintain, it stands a full, comfortable 17″ H. The household bowl measures 19-1/4″ L x 14-3/8″ W; the elongated version is 21-1/2″ L x 14-1/8″ W.

Featuring Raritan’s VORTEX-VAC™ discharge system, the Atlantes Freedom creates an internal vacuum that doesn’t require remote pumps. Yet with all this power, toilet operation is whisper quiet.

Inside the Atlantes Freedom, the robust macerator has stainless steel blades that shred waste into small particles for efficient and reliable flushing. Unlike many marine toilets, the discharge loop enables the boat to hold water similar to a residential device, but only requires two pints to flush.

Raritan offers the Atlantes Freedom with a wide range of flush controls. Ideal for guests, handled models are available in momentary or timed versions. A multifunction wall control offers fill, empty and flush modes, while the Smart Programmable Control has a normal flush and a water-saver mode.

With the SeaFresh option, the Atlantes Freedom allows the owner to flush with raw water to conserve valuable onboard supplies. A simple switch reverts the system back to freshwater flush to rinse-out the toilet lines to reduce odors.

The Raritan Atlantes Freedom is offered in 12V, 24V and 120/240VAC. It comes with a one-year warranty and starts at US$1,355.

Seemingly part sailboat and part spaceship, the new Jeanneau Yachts 55 just busted through the boundaries of traditional yacht design. I couldn’t take my eyes off the bubble hardtop that met me at the dock and I stepped aboard with trepidation. A few hours later, I was planning how to spend my not-yet-won lottery winnings.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
