I would also look at your engine manual and see what it saids about running the engine at low RPM's. I just installed a new Yanmar and the manual is very specific about not running the engine at low RPM's, otherwise you reduce the life of the engine.

On my 45ft ketch I use to own I brought a 2kw petrol generator that ran for about 10 hours on a single tank of juice. Very quiet and was happy to run for a couple of hours a day no problem.
