Water capacity

Postby Herminia » Wed Jan 08, 2014 7:08 pm

Hi folks :-)

The last owner states that the water capacity on my newly aquired GS 52 was in two tanks, together 450 liters. I asked about this two times, as I was sure I have read several places that the water capacity is 900 liters. As I haven't had the chance to check this out yet, please advise what is the water capacity on the GS 52. And also where are the water tanks placed, so I can eventually install more capacity during the upcoming refit.

I reckon there's 620 litres in two tanks.

The port one is under the saloon table and can be accessed under the aft settee cushion (you have to lift the locker base to get to it.

The stb one is under the walkway between the back of the centre settee and the seating area on the stb side. You just need to lift the floor boards.

They are both stainless steel and have great access through inspection hatches (3 on each tank) covered with rubber caps, held on with jubilee clips.

Rather than installing tankage, I would consider a watermaker. The one thing that you will notice about the Frers GS is that the accommodation space is incredible (unlike the Nautor versions). The price is that there is not much space between the furniture and the hull, (except in the bilges which are very deep due to the immense floor structure, but usually already occupied). This means that fitting ancillary equipment is challenging. Finally I have also noticed the bad effect on performance of excessive weight forward in the boat, so I would resist the temptation to put extra tankage in the fwd bilges.

If you would like advice on watermaker installation location, come back.

Thanks for the answer. I will check the actual capacity before I do anything more. I wonder why they state 900 liters in the brochyre when there is actually less? Maybe it was an option to have bigger tankage? I already have a watermaker which is almost new (never used according to the last Owner). It is installed in the forepeak underneath a workbench.
