Spectra Ventura Deluxe 150 Watermaker

About 3 years old. Been pickled since I bought the boat. Just looking to simplify things, and I'm doing "fine" jugging it.

Comes with manual, chemicals, a few spare filters, and I'll also include all plumbing and wiring. AKA: Everything you need minus the thru-hulls.

Since they sell for about $5k new, I'm thinking $3k is a nice starting point.
Located in West Palm beach, FL

Are you the original owner of this water maker?

Tellie,
If this is in good condition, how much would it be to get the mpc-5000 controller to add on from you?

Hi Lawdawg. Unfortunatly too much for this water maker. In fact Spectra will not provide retro fitted MPC controls any more for any of their manual units. This VT150 might be a decent deal if you can do without the MPC controls. Sitting for three years there is probably some issues that will need to be taken care of. As I look at the pictures a few things clue me into the opinion that it has been used very little from what I can see. I'm not trying to drum up work here, I know it's against board rules, so I'm treading carefully here. But I remember you are looking for a used unit. But if you and grunzster can come to a deal, he is only about 45 min. north of me. I charge a small fee. But I'd be willing to go up there and throughly check the system out first and let you both know the real condition of this unit. If you guys are interested let me know. Probably a PM is a good idea. Good Luck to both of you.

Second owner, but it's the initial install. Came with the boat. Last ran, going on 2 years, as I was up North and tied to a dock, so I never used it.

I'm thinking 2K is a better starting point if you get nothing else.
Would pick up.

Nice to know the WM went sale went quickly. I'm looking at a boat with the 200 tropical version and wondered about the quality and reputation.
