Hi gang,
I would like to know a bit about your experience with generator.
I think about the new EFOY to to power, up to 240 Amp a day, or a Diesel Generator eg. the Picolo which makes approx. 4 Kw.
Both are around the same price.

What have you on your boat?

Grüezi Laughing

I'm thinking about installing a 220 V AC Generator directly on the main engine.
There a two devices on the market:
Dynawatt (Switzerland)
https://www.dynawatt.ch/dynawatt-de/produkte/dynawatt_5000/index.php

Whisperpower (Netherland)
http://www.whisperpower.com/ch/4/7/72/produkte/lichtmaschinen/w-bd-3.5-ac-belt-power.html

From my point of view they are more or less the same, avaiable in 3.5 and 5 kW versions. Pricing from 3 to 5 grands.

The problem is attaching the gen to the main engine, the volvo penta set is very expensive and made for either a mastervolt or a volvo generator.
Nevertheless i'm not sure if the volvo set is strong enough to transmit 5 kW of mechanical power.

My toughts in this solutions:

Pro:
- No extra motor, extra tank or petrol
- Producing power AND hot water while running the main engine
- Enough AC power to run a watermaker, dishwasher...at the same time
- The engine ist running anyway more or less every day
- No extra maintenance
- Less weight

Contra:
- More expensive then a Honda 2kW
- Difficulties on attaching the device onto the main engine
- Not portable

Adieu merci

Roman
