Iím the second owner, but my boat came to me with racor style filters already installed. Iíve always thought that was standard from the factory, but now I wonder if the previous owner made that modification. I donít have the nice double filter set up, I have a single unit for the generator, and another single unit for the engine.

I was in no rush to buy, so I waited for a price drop. Bought it in the US and took it back to Europe with me. It came out a bit more expensive than the SEPAR unit, but I like the design better, and RACOR filters are easy to get anywhere in the world.

How much did you pay for the Racor System? I'm also thinking of installing a double filter system after an issue with the water separator alarm of Yanmar out of the bue. It happened again twice and now it seems to be ok. There are 2 problems with this Yanmar type. You have no visual control and when the alarm goes off it's too late.e 2nd the separator is very small so that only some condensation water (I was told by a Yanmar technician) can trigger the alarm. But I'm tempted to buy the SEPAR SWK-2000/5U type. On a Hanse 508 there is enough space in the bilge where the handle for the diesel tanks is. Any experiences with that?
