May be a misprint but DC generators are quite common and the most efficient way to charge the batteries. Beats running the main engine or having a big generator for AC. A DC generator and an inverter, which you will probably have anyway, is a lighter, lower maintenance solution. On a larger boat, say above 40', I would want one.
I have seen several, one on a 35' catamaran and one on a Saga 43 for example.
