Carbon Fibre Toilet


Thetford Marine’s Tecma X-Light carbon fibre toilets combine performance and luxury. Designed for maximum adaptability, the X-Light Short is the company’s newest addition.

Part of Tecma’s Design Line, the X-Light series is as elegant as it is modern. Each toilet is hand-crafted of pre-preg carbon fiber for maximum rigidity and low weight—almost 42 lbs. less than most traditional models. The X-Light weighs only 15.4 lbs; the X-Light Short is a mere 14.6 lbs. To ensure structural integrity and a high-quality finish, an advanced post-cure treatment is applied.

Both models offer a generous and ergonomic seat size of 18.5″ L x 14.2″ W. With its supple lines, high-tech black surface and white bowl it’s a bold statement that fits well into any contemporary marine décor. Additionally, a wide range of electronic control panels are available, including the state-of-the-art glass Touch with LED backlighting, to complement any interior design.

The macerator unit and clog-resistant turbine are completely self-contained. It flushes virtually silently with a user-controlled water usage of 17–90 oz. per cycle and has a low power draw.
