Expensive, but the best variable pump you can get. Mine works flawlessly.

I installed a Johnson Pump Flow Master 5.0 Gph Variable Flow Demand Pump 2 months ago. Don't like it at all. A pressure tank will be going back on as soon as I get around to it.

It appears that they suggest an accumulator with the Johnson VS pump. Every review I've seen when it was coupled with an accumulator showed folks were happy. Mine just showed up but it may be a while till I get a chance to install it.

Years ago I put a variable speed pump in a previous boat. Didn’t last 2 weeks before I pulled it out. It didn’t have great flow and it made lots of loud noises. It would actually groan like it was straining. I went back to a regular pump and accumulator tank. Maybe they are better now but I don’t think I will try one. Too much work putting one in and possibly having to pull it back out.

Nice thing about our set up is its literally a 5 minute job to swap out the pumps
A fair bit of thought was put into accessing systems on her thankfully.

Still using the $160 Vetus 24v at this stage, its gone past the 3 year mark and now out of warranty

Funny thing about these is Vetus adds a $30 accumulator tank on a bracket and the price blows out to $1056

Yes, and you have a 60’ boat with a lot more room inside... You have to take into account the cost of the bracket.
