Sea Sure’s Blakes’ toilets now come in any colour with the option of words or logos engraved in the porcelain bowl and an electric push-button flush.

The toilets, which were first designed in the late Victorian era for classic racing yachts, have featured various colours in their long and well-respected past although most were made in white.

“Traditionally porcelain was not white,” said Graham Brown, managing director. “Pastels were the fashion for a long time during the 1960/70s and then white became the high-end look. That’s changing again. Colour is coming back into designer bathrooms onshore, and we’re bringing it back to Blakes. We’re delighted with the results.”

Robust design

Both the Baby Blake Classic Marine and Blakes’ Victory Classic Marine toilets feature pumps on the right with a rigid handle on the discharge pump and a 1.5-inch hose connection on the discharge outlet.

Castings are manufactured in bronze for maximum corrosion resistance and both feature separate pumping systems to ensure that clean and waste water are never mixed and are suitable for use with a holding tank.

As well as making Blakes’ toilets, Sea Sure also renovates them at its factory in Warsash, Hampshire.

Renovation takes as little as two weeks and includes dissembling the toilet, stripping and re-polishing the original castings, as well as re-powder coating and re-chroming all the parts. All perishable seals and gaskets are also replaced.
