It is Plastimo. Haven't been able to find that particular pump. Still searching.

Re: identify this pump

Try Wolf's Marine in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Home Page

They have a lot of NOS & discontinued stuff. Call & send a photo. You might get lucky.

Re: identify this pump

Here is the Plastimo website. Plastimo

Bilge pumps are on pages 396 through 406.

I see similar pumps but I don't see your pump.

Re: identify this pump

I know this post was from 2015, but just curious, I have a Beneteau First 285 with a Plastimo bilge pump and have the same issue, a nice cutout for a discontinued pump.

Any luck with a replacement? I would like to try a Gusher or Urchin, but I am afraid the cutout won't match:





Thinking of trying the Whale Gusher Urchin Manual Bilge / Waste Pump:

Whale Gusher Urchin Manual Bilge / Waste Pump

What did you end up doing for your replacement?

Randy--

That's a standard Plastimo manual bilge pump presumably pulled from you starboard stern locker. Valves and the diaphragm are (or at least were) still available from Plastimo and, potentially, through BeneteauUSA (call Ward Richardson).

FWIW...
