We had Uchimata install ours on our L400
Originally we were going to put them on the davits
as per our last L380 as I was concerned about shading, lack of sunshine in the cockpit
and obstructing the view. As it turn out we prefer them as they are. The shading and rain protection is a plus, we can always sit in the sun if we want.
The panels were a bit tricky to source as they are quite high output, but we eventually found a supplier in La Rochelle, Pierre can hook you up there.
Similar size victron panels are only around 240W
The bar supporting the panels should have been 50mm diameter instead of 38mm, then 2 supports would have been enough.
Cost is under 4000 euro supplied, installed with a victron 85/150 MPPT
controller which is just enough capacity for the 1120W panels. Installation
is neat, all wiring
running through the Bimini lining and the stern light moved to the rear of the panels.
