Well... since you're in Wickford and I'm in Edgewood if if the Panda doesn't work out I'll sail down there and we can commiserate over a martini.

I probably would need a few Martini's to ease the pain of the replacement cost. And as for changing brands.... especially to a larger footprint unit - not an option.... I have Zero Sq. Inches to spare They did an amazing job of shoehorning in that genset and an A/C unit in that little area under the port side sliding pilothouse door On your 46 ...... heck you could have that big genset powering a washer and dryer.....

We run an Entec West

The Entec West unit may well have the smallest footprint out there. It uses the same engine as the FP, the Faryman Diesel which is very reliable. Mine fits in the cockpit sail locker on our IP35. Anything else would have required some structural modification.

At 4.2KV is runs a 16K BTU AC without issue and it is quite quiet although it does run at 3600 RPM. They offer an optional centrifigual water pump that runs off the generator output and eliminates the chore of replacing impellers.

It is also reasonably priced compared to many other units.
