The inexpensive Schenker watermaker that winks at design
The Zen was launched on the market in September, during the last Genoa boat show. During the event, it was selected by ADI (Italian Design Association) as one of the most interesting new products presented at the show. Afterward the new Zen got the award of ‘Special Mention’ at the prestigious ‘Design Award Dame’. The final ceremony took place during the METS in Amsterdam, a show dedicated to nautical accessories. Zen was included in this restricted range of products chosen by the international jury of the DAME for its peculiarity to combine advanced technological features with a beautiful and original design. Schenker invested significant R&D resources to produce not only a system with the best and most advanced technical features, but also a design object. Definitely a not usual attitude in companies that design machines to be installed in an engine room. For the just born product, Schenker Watermakers chose the name Zen, a term evocative of essentiality, simplicity, lightness, minimalism. Revolutionary from a certain point of view, it is small (just 10 cm depth) automatic, very silent and incredibly efficient. Moreover it can installed both flat or even vertical, almost like a painting and therefore can fit basically all boats.
