I took a Mase single cylinder diesel generator out of my boat, it had a rusted out exhaust manifold. I replaced it with Nextgen 5.5 kw.
The Mase was running, but leaking from manifold.
If anyone wants it, they can have it...but you have to pick it up in Long Beach, Ca.

Re: Small 1KW Diesel Generator

There is a very small two stroke diesel engine that is making the rounds in the light recreational aircraft industry...

Maybe I misunderstand what you are saying, but I wouldn't call sailboats with diesel generators rare, or even unusual.

ID:	67896Stepping in mid-stream here. I have built a 48V Farymann 18W diesel generator that produces about 52 amps peak power. The engine is water-cooled and single cylinder. It is belt driven. The engine, dry, weights in at less than 100 pounds. The belt plate is aluminum, and weights around 20 pounds. The Mars electric motor weighs, say, another 30 pounds. The power goes through a diode block, then to a Midnight Solar Classic 150 charge controller. Basically, what I have is a diesel serial hybrid system aboard. More than a proto-type, not quite in production. At any rate, there is an answer to the question: is there a relatively inexpensive and lightweight diesel generator out there.

Note: the picture attached is of the Farymann still without the belt-drive bracket. I wanted to get a picture of the electric drive in the back-ground.

Nice clean set up. I've used the MARS motor in a EV project at 96 volts. Potent little motor. I'll bet you enjoy what I call throttle precision when docking, no more clunking in and out of gear with a diesel idle rpm of 800.

48 volts is as high as I go on a boat; I am guesing that your 96 volt project was land based! You are so right, docking with an electric drive is smooth, quiet, and effortless.

Yes EV (electric vehicle) project. I appreciate the precision of electric propulsion as I used to hold a 32,000 ton drill rig over the well with (6) 5,000 hp electric thrusters.

In this picture we are in transit to the next drilling location and are ballasted up high enough you can see the domes of the thrusters.

Re: Small 1KW Diesel Generator

I'm also looking for a small water cooled diesel and found this. I think it's just what I need when I don't want to run my 20K.

Diesel marine generator totally water-cooled - PAGURO 3000 COMPACT - 2.8 kW - 3000 rpm
