Question Sizing battery charger

I replaced my house bank of 2 4d's with 6 6v batteries that total about 750 amps, and continue to have one group 27 as a starting battery. My current charger is a 50 amp Promariner multistep. Is this large enough for my larger battery capacity? I also upgraded the engine alternator to a 120 amp Powerline with extenal "smart" regulator. Thanks.
