Thetford wins innovation award at IBEX

Thanks to its modern and home-like design, Thetford’s new Porta Potti Excellence (with floor plate) won an Innovation Award at this year’s International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (IBEX). It took top honors in the Furnishing & Interior Parts category. Sixty-five new products were entered in the Innovation Awards, which are organized by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and judged by Boating Writers International.


Serious thinking time was spent addressing multiple ways to improve and innovate one of life’s basic necessities,” said judge Roger McAfee. “The originators of the Porta Potti redesigned everything from a battery powered flushing mechanism to a hidden, integrated toilet paper holder.

Thetford’s new Porta Potti Curve features a user-friendly, battery-powered flush, raised seat height and increased bowl size for supreme comfort. For added convenience, it also has an integrated toilet paper holder. Easy-to-read level indicators make monitoring fresh and waste water tanks simple, while a water tank carrying handle offers trouble-free transportation.
