Hi All,

Has anybody among 430 owners considered installing a generator set in the tiny 430?

 Hi Alain & Anne
 
     I am looking at all the options at the moment. If money not an issue then theres lots on the market (Google marine generators), i am thinking down the lines of building my own DC generator and mounting it above the main engine. Ive cost this option at around 1500 and a bit of work about 1|3 the cost of going the easy route

Alain & Anne,
Did you already look at the Yanmar KMG65E (go to Yanmar and type KMG65E in the search field)?
Or this?

Hi Alex,

Yes I did explore the Yanmar solution and I have got some quote: something around 12000 without the labour cost for the modification and the installation!!!! and for 3kW only.
I have now a quote for a IS 3.5 MASE diesel generator around 6000 all included but the labour cost.
I know the Victron energy solution and I find it a good solution exept the pb of the storage of the generator and the fuel either.
I would like to go for a fixed installation and I am working to find something relevant.
That's the reason why I launched this new topic!!

This is what I have in my papers:
Yanmar engine flange-generator Electra-230 6 kw complete installed (only with 55 PS Yanmar)     13690,00

I am also considering a generator and a watermaker, but I will not install one until next summer.
