Marine ToiletsInterior boat designers often mix and match plumbing equipment to accommodate space. The Tecma Flexi Line 2G range of marine toilets and bidets from Thetford Marine delivers the flexibility to maintain the same décor throughout the entire vessel. The line is so striking and technologically advanced, it won the Golden Sail Innovation Award at the 2017 China (Shanghai) International Boat Show.

Noted designer Emanuele Pangrazi conceived the Flexi Line 2G range to evoke a clean, modern look from any perspective. A unique, side-mounting system eliminates visible hardware around the toilet base, improving aesthetics, and making it fast and easy to install.

Luxurious Italian ceramic hides the innovation within the high-performance Flexi Line 2G range. Siphoning and backflow issues are eliminated with integrated safe-air admittance valves. This optimizes venting and improves hydraulics, and eliminates the cause of a loud-flushing toilet. Its reliable internal macerator is the industry standard.

Four toilets make up the next-generation Flexi Line 2G range: the Silence Plus 2G, Silence Plus 2G Short, Silence 2G and Silence 2G Short. The Silence Plus 2G boasts a 15.4" W x 20.1" L home-sized bowl. Slightly smaller, the Silence 2G's bowl is 14.6" W x 16.9" L. Both are a comfortable 18.1" H.

For use on base steps, the Silence Plus 2G Short is 13.8" H and the Silence 2G Short is 14.2" H, and have the same bowl dimensions as the standard versions. These low-profile models mount flush to the floor—no more cutting holes.
The Flexi Line 2G range has the same footprints as previous Tecma models, making refitting easy and straightforward. They come with a two-year warranty. A video is at bit.ly/2d6YVpO.
