Look at the features that make an FCI Watermaker the world’s finest innovator of marine reverse osmosis systems.

FCI Watermaker offer’s the world’s only full automated combo unit watermaker that provides spot-free water from seawater or a dockside source with true one-touch operation. Auto-flow shut-off extends the membrane and pre-filter life while significantly reducing operational costs.


FCI V4 Controller Technology continues to lead the market with complete automation and bridge certifications. The industry’s most advanced Watersmart Intelligence does the work for you. The V4 interface works via 7” or 4.3” marine-grade, high-resolution and full-colour HMI (Human Machine Interface) touchscreen. Our monitor’s higher heat tolerance and system design allows it to work in the harshest environments. The FCI touchscreen displays can be installed with confidence because there will be no interference with their on-board electronics.


Every FCI Watermakers unit can be customised to fit your specific application or your voyaging habits. The result is optimum performance and reliability, with less maintenance and lower operating costs. Whether you need a few minor tweaks to an existing series, or a completely new designed desalinator, FCI Watermakers will deliver a system that is tailored for your needs.

FCI Watermakers Benefits

FCI Watermakers does more than build and sell marine reverse osmosis systems. They invent the technology and advance the systems that are the future of marine desalination around the planet.

Over three decades ago, FCI pioneered the integration of the UROC (Universal Reverse Osmosis Controller), which allows for features and automation that had never before been seen in a marine watermaker.

These attributes have become standard in today’s marine desalinators and commercial systems, including one-touch commands, multiple station operation and remote system control as well as monitoring. Today, FCI continues to provide boaters and offshore industries with products that are always ahead of the curve. As both engineers and craftsmen, they specialise in dependable, high-performance and value-driven marine watermakers. They  are proud of the thousands of continuously operating RO units that have been cruising the globe for decades.
