Extra drive belt on Yanmar 3GM

I am looking to fit a belt drive Echotech Watermaker to my Yamnar 3 GM.
Has anyone got any good ideas about mounting?
Space is very limited as it is in a catamaran and access os over the top..
Theere is not much space on the sides?

You may have to use solar panel and/or heavy duty engine driven alternator and convert to 115 volt AC to drive Echotech if not enough room. Consider http://www.balmar.net/2011-Balmar-Product-Guide.pdf You would probably need 150 amp small frame alternator with dual belts or serpentine. If you want more than 13 gallon/hour, get large frame alternator if it will fit.
