The primary advantage of an inboard, built-in genset is that it is acoustically baffled--if only by being enclosed--and is much less obnoxious than a portable generator on a swim platform or on deck. The other factor is that you would invariably have a diesel genset inboard and would not have to carry extra gas. It isn't the gas exhaust fumes that are flammable, after all, it is the liquid gas. The raw gasoline fumes are worse and pose an explosion hazard.
