Can't really say, from a distance and without additional info... but if your current bank is 3X flooded batteries of the same basic size, shape, capacity... then the Victron AGM version should work fine.

If your battery charger is "modern" enough to offer different charging profiles for flooded, AGM, gel... then you probabbly can just choose an AGM setting and be happy. A more throughout approach would be to look up Victron's recommended bulk/absorption and float voltages, and then set the charger as close to that as possible.

Otherwise, charging profiles for flooded batteries are probably OK for AGMs, too. (At least that's what our slightly older charger manual recommends; it only offers two settings, one for flooded/AGM and one for gel.)

Victron also makes a deep cycle gel battery available in Sicily and Victron is one of the few manufacturers that really explains the differences between AGM and gels without a lot of hype. I went back to gels from AGMs because of how I use them.
