Which MPPT controller?

I need some advice on which MPPT controller would best suit our situation.

We currently have 2 x 180 watt Kyocera 24 volt solar panels and a 30 amp MPPT controller installed. We will soon add another 3 x 145 watt Kyocera 24 volt solar panels and 2 x SilentWind 24 volt wind generators. Our battery bank consist of 14 x 125 amp Gel 12 volt batteries - connected for 24 volt. The yacht will be in the Caribbean for the next 2 years and then we will head into the Pacific slowly working our way to South East Asia.

I guess we will have to replace our 30 amp MPPT controller with a bigger one. Can you advise what we should be looking at?

Thank you for the replies!
In specific, based on all the equipment, what size MPPT controller should I be looking at?
