Used Village Marine Little Wonder Watermaker 200gpd

This is a used VIP (vertical integration chassis) Village Marine Little Wonder Watermaker. It is rated at 200 gallons per day. Figure more like 7+ gallons per hour in practice. It is a 12volt DC system using about 17amps.
I have removed the two short membrane vessels (included in package) from the frame and mounted a new standard 40in membrane vessel external to the frame. All mounts included. Pickling and cleaning chemicals included. Some spares and rebuild kit included.
Membrane was pickled in Jan, 2018.

We’ve used this water make while cruising over the last 7 years. It has about 2,000 hours on it. (Replacing with a larger output watermaker).

usd$1,650 plus shipping of approx $150 domestic US or pickup in Bellingham, Washington.

Re: Used Village Marine Little Wonder Watermaker 200gpd

Very interested in this purchase, but I'm overseas for work. Would like the dimensions. Also would need to wait until I get to the boat on the 7th to measure.

The frame is approx. 13x13x22inch. The frame is not really necessary, you could mount the pump, etc separately.

Very interested but as mentioned I'm travelling overseas for work and won't be home until the 10th. Would like to get this for our Shannon as we're heading out later this coming year.
Would you take $1500 shipped?

Re: Used Village Marine Little Wonder Watermaker 200gpd

Dear Paul,

For the benefit of the rest of us, could you share the maker and type of the 12V motor and pump?

Based on what you say and the online spec sheet, it produces 8 gph @ 18A which would make it one of the most efficient on energy recovery watermaker I have come across.

Thank you,
SV Pizzazz

The pump is made by Parker Racor, the make of the Village Marine watermarked. It is not an every recovery system.
A Spectra system is almost twice as efficient at a cost.

Seems like a very good deal for the money and output. If your on a budget and you need a watermaker I'd snap in up.
