Product Overview

Flexible Diesel Fuel Tanks can dramatically extend the range of diesel-powered sailboats and powerboats.

Nauta Flexible Diesel Fuel Tanks provide many advantages over rigid tanks and are popular with both yacht builders and boat owners. Each tank is made from an extremely rugged 840-denier nylon fabric, coated on both sides with a neoprene/nitrile compound that is chemical and odor resistant. This allows them to be used as waste holding tanks, too. Heavily lapped seams are inside-reinforced with a “doubler” to provide extra strength. Plus, all Nauta tanks are vulcanized to assure leakproof panels and seams for years of trouble-free service. And all are covered by a one-year warranty.

Because of their flexibility and range of sizes, these flexible tanks can fit into almost any space, especially those odd-shaped places that would otherwise be wasted. And since the tanks will collapse as the fuel is consumed, there is far less air in the tank to cause condensation and contamination. This also minimizes free-surfacing action (turbulence in the airspace above liquid) which dramatically reduces sloshing and its noise. When all the fuel has been drawn off, simply roll up the tank and stow.

Nauta Flexible Diesel Fuel Tanks are very easy to work with. Their construction allows for custom placement of fittings to suit your particular requirements and make it simple to install them. They can be deck- or cockpit-mounted to gravity feed (or be hand-pumped to) tanks below the deck. Easier to maintain than rigid tanks, flexible tanks can be removed for cleaning, inspection or repair without structural work. They will not corrode and are impervious to saltwater and other liquids they might encounter in the marine environment.

Sport and commercial fishermen heading into offshore waters and cruisers visiting remote ports (where refueling may be unavailable or of suspect quality) will find flexible tanks an ideal, low cost solution.

Rigorously enforced laws against overboard discharge make non-compliance extremely costly. A Nauta flexible holding tank provides a relatively inexpensive Type III solution. In addition, their Tedlar™ lining prevents gas permeation, thus stopping a major odor problem with many other holding tanks.
