sapo We use the small Ryobi, with 18v battery. Works fine, we have a cat and live aboard. Also use the Ryobi 18v drill and saw. Ryobi offers a car charger for the 18v bats, that makes us pretty much off the grid . . .

LauderBoy I'm using this at the moment: Shark Pet Perfect Hand Vacuum, SV75Z: Appliances

The battery life and portability are great, but it doesn't get into the corners and hard to reach places very well. The small 1-2 gallon wet/dry vacs listed here look awesome.

Works great to get that last bit of water from the bilges.

Ditto here. Love this tool. Much more suction than expected. Even has a blower, which I just used last weekend to inflate the swim rafts for the kids.

I'm looking for a vacuum for living aboard, so this looks great. I also want something that can suck air out of a space bag, thus making clothing storage a breeze. Has anyone used a Shop Vac for space bags? I'm assuming it'll work fine.

malpka Saying that I recently found some very useful information on vacuum cleaners that you may find interesting. Actually answers most questions that you would be likely to want know. Also provides a lot of information on the different specifications of vacuum cleaners. Have a look and see what you think The Domestic Guide | Your Guide to Domestic Appliances

malpka Heard the Dyson DC24 Animal is excellent. Very reliable and as I have 2 dogs it works a treat and so much better than your average vacuum cleaner

malpka I was recently looking for a new vacuum cleaner and happened to find some really useful information on vacuum cleaners. I had previously bought a Dyson which which was excellent and compatible for abroad as it is a global brand
