alternator max output - how long until burn out

hi

how "unhealthy" do you think it is to allow an alternator (in this case standard yanmar 3YM30 60 amp alternator) to run at max output for several hours at a time numerous times per year?

i.e. are these alternators designed for continuous high output?

thanks in advance
