Entec 6kw Generator Value ?

I have just removed from my boat an Entec 6kw diesel generator with 740 hours on it. It runs fine I just dont have a need for it and can use the space. I would like to sell the generator but am wondering what its worth?

I have the transfer switch, gauges, complete exhaust system, bronze Raw water intake strainer etc. Its complete turn key but does not have an enclosure.

We dont have air conditioning on the boat and don't plan on installing it. The boat came to us with the generator and after a year of weekend cruising we have no use for it. I am planning to install 480 watts of solar to provide our charging along with an 800ah battery bank and a 3kw inverter I should have all the AC power I need. Plus the genset was installed in the engine compartment and really restricted engine access.

Im in Annapolis and plan to list the genset on ebay, craigslist, bullitin boards etc. Just trying to get an idea what I should ask?


PS. Im not sure of forum rules here but please do not construe this post as an ad to sell the generator as it is not yet actually for sale. Im looking for advice on a price.

Entec 6KW generator value?

Greetings Escape Plan,
Did you find a buyer for the Entec? Would you mind sharing with me the sale price? I am looking for a similar genset for my Willard trawler and am wondering what to pay for a used but good (low hours) diesel generator. You can reach me off-list at
