Splendide Washing Machine

I just purchased my first sailboat (Cooper 416) a couple of months ago and am now preparing it as a liveaboard. I was at the Seattle boat show last weekend and I saw these little combo washer/dryer units (Splendide) that were on sale for a really good price $858 US. The marina I will be moored at does not have any laundry service. I can make the room on my boat available easily enough and I like the idea of being completely disconnected from shore. The unit will need to be run from a generator when away from shore and I figure I would discharge the water directly into the sea - using 100% nature friendly detergent of course. The unit uses about 10 gallons per load. Has anyone had any experience with these?
