Re: Smallest Diesel Generator Carrying Sailboat

Not many boats in that size range came with a genset. It was usually dealer or owner installed. Finding the space to install one can be tricky.

We have an engine driven 5kw generator on our boat that takes up very little space. It is about twice the size of an alternator. It is mounted on the front of the engine and requires two drive belts. There is also a small control box in the sail locker and a switch on our panel. The brand is Seapower.
