Indigo Under Sail

Customer Testimonial


The photo above shows “Indigo,” our Island Packet 380, one of two boats in which I have installed Ocean Link holdings tanks.


I highly recommend Ocean Link tanks to anyone replacing their holding tanks. A custom tank is far superior to off-the-shelf tanks sold in marine supply stores. Those tanks come with the fittings installed (usually where you don’t want them!); so you end up with extra “relocation” connections – a primary source of leaks, odors, and headaches!

I would like to add a comment about Ocean Link’s service. I miscalculated on the tank for “Indigo,” and had to return it to have a fitting moved. The entire process took less time than I anticipated and everyone there was friendly and helpful.

Thanks again for a great product — and superior service!

Sail Longer, Pump Out Less 

VacuFlush Logo VacuFlush technology uses stored vacuum energy to clear the bowl instantly and propel waste into the holding tank. This results in no odors, no clogs, and exceptionally low water consumption (only 1 pint per flush!) and power draw. Minimal water use means fewer pump-pouts.


VacuFlush toilet systems are one of the most popular sanitation systems in the world.
