Channel Cutter Yachts is a distributor for the Nature’s Head® composting toilet. I have installed and used all types of marine heads and holding tanks systems during my 30+ years of building boats and cruising. I am convinced that the Nature’s Head is the best solution to the difficult problem of human waste aboard a boat. It is drastically better than carrying around a tank of raw sewage and looking for pumpout stations or a legal dumping site. When you add up the cost of a good quality marine toilet, with a holding tank, valves, thru hulls etc. it will often cost much more than a Nature’s Head.
The key to the Nature’s Head is the urine separating design. It is very simple. When men and women sit on the toilet, urine naturally flows forward, down the two drain holes shown. When the trap door is closed, all urine entering the bowl will flow into the urine drain. Sitting is recommended, especially underway.
The Nature’s Head will hold 60-80 solid uses. This means that two people living aboard full time will empty once a month or so.

Here you can see the vent hose connection on the side of the toilet. This can be switched to either side of the toilet for convenient installation. The other side has an air intake. Air is constantly being drawn into the toilet and exhausted outside, with the aid of a small 12 volt fan (it draws 0.07 of an amp, which is less than 1 watt at 12 volts. It will use 1.7 amp hours of battery capacity every 24 hours). Power free installations are possible with the optional solar vent.
Below are the measurements of The Nature’s Head (click for a larger image).
Here you can see a close up of the ‘crank’ handle. The choice is yours. Both handles work equally well, but I suggest the spider handle for installations where space is a concern.
Below you can see how the top of the Nature’s Head tilts up, to remove the urine bottle or to empty the base. When mounting against a bulkhead or wall, you should allow 2.5″ of clearance for tilting. This means you need to allow about 20″, from the bulkhead to the front of the toilet.
The urine bottle holds 2.2 US gallons. Urine is sterile and does not pose a health risk. Therefore, it is easy to dispose of either on shore or at sea.
