Agree with yours below
Did the math yesterday and concluded that the one offered is actually too small.
I have both a 32A (A/C and washing
machine) and a 16A shore cable (everything else). That mounts up to around 10kW
The boat is designed to carry a 11 kW so this one is not for us
I also saw this and have done some checking around on the net. It seems Mastervolt stopped producing these in 2004. Since this engine has been sitting unused since 2001(14-15 years), you might want ot be thinking about packings o-rings etc drying out (also depends on what temperature the genset was stored under.

I can't answer your other questions, but in terms of price. A brand new kubota genset 3.5KW (half the Mastervolt size, but still producing 15 amps) can be bought on ebay for DKK37.000. Add an extra DKK5000 for the soundproof box and you've got yourself a genset.

The Mastervolt weighs 225KG which is big and would require some type of lifting device to get onto the boat (I don't know how I would get it into my boat) The kubota weighs 80KG and is smaller.
As i said I looked at it and decided to pass based on the above. We're leaving on an RTW next spring and I would love to have a genset. I've decided I can manage to cross the atlantic with our solar
and 600 amp batteries.
Depending on how that goes - I'll buy a genset in the US.
The seller is asking for DKK 65.000 - I think this is too much. 40K perhaps or less[/QUOTE]
