Skip,

No one has responded, so I will give my experiences: I have only used a Fisher Panda 4.5 and a Mastervolt 3.5. Both were enclosed. That is how you get the really quiet engine.

Boy, a 15kw issure a large generator. What all are you running? Where do you find the room for that?

Also, what kind of boat do you have... you'd need a pretty big one to fit a 15KW genset aboard.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

A 15kW generator on a sailboat? Are you certain of this? That's 125A at 120VAC or 68A at 220VAC. That's a lotta juice. Would have to be a pretty big boat, I should think.

Here's a 15kW (peak) generator, just to give you an idea of how big such a beastie might be. Note this one is 15kW peak, 13.5kW constant. Look at that fuel consumption rate: Nearly a gallon per hour at 50% load. That's a lot of diesel fuel.

A generator capable of delivering 15kW continuous would be even bigger and have even higher fuel consumption, of course.

My friend has a 60-foot yacht with a 15Kw on it. To run all three four conditioners, 3 sub-sero’s, and all the other toys he only needs 10KW. Why in the world would a sailboat want 15KW?
