|Mabhipa||I think a bidet on a boat is an awesome idea! My husband has been looking at bidets on sanicare.com. Have you checked them out yet?|

|trantor12020||I fitted a bidet on my boat. Its an aftermarket type. Sits between the Jabsco toilet bowl and the toilet seat. Connects the tap to fresh water supply in the head. Good for washing after clean up with TP. If you want to please the Admiral or impress a lady, you gotto have a bidet.|

Anyone that has traveled to the Mediterranean encountered them just about everywhere they went. I saw them in France, Italy, Gibraltar, Turkey, Greece and a host of north Atlantic countries. Never thought about putting on on the boat, though. Jumping overboard in a secluded cove seemed like a lot more efficient method--especially if you were skinny-dippin'.

Japan has the best of both worlds. On a boat maybe not practical but in your home would be great.

|LandLocked66c||Being a plumber in the past i'm pretty familiar with them. Most people that have them don't use them, toilet paper is faster - in the US that is. But, yes most lame-men wouldn't have a clue and wonder what the second toilet with drain is for. They are wonderful for hemorrhoids, from what i've been told!!!|

Gosh, I live in Hew Hampshire AND know what bidet does. I once worked on a house that had a GOLD bidet [really]. Initially I thought it strange to have water fountain in a bathroom.
Real men would never have one in a man boat. What the hell are toe rails for !!

I am quite a man from the dark ages and for me in the summer the sea water provides me with almost all the hygiene I need, for a week or so. Not with the ladies that have the need to wash their intimate parts. If a bidé was not so big, or the head so tiny, it would be a great addiction to the boat because it would save a lot of water that is otherwise wasted in a shower, I mean, if you have several ladies aboard as I normally have.

|tdw||Couple of boats we were on this week has bidet faucets....both European...Hanse and Wauquiez.....seems like a good idea to me, maybe somewhat wasteful of water though.|

This proves that most Americans do not know what a BIDET is and what it is used for.
With a BIDET you don't need to use Toilet Paper because cleans the same area that TP is used for.
Wet down there?? A quick brust from your SO's hair dryer will take care of that minor detail.
But many of us Americans are still living in the dark ages.....

|jackdale||I have sailed one boat (Nauticat 37) with a bidet faucet, but no separate bidet. We never used it.|
