Wind Generators

Hi, anyone out there can advise me of most efficient and QUIET wind generators ? I have 62 ft Jongert Trewes ketch and shall be cruising from Med to NZ end of this year.....my new auto-pilot , TMQ requires quite a substantial power supply, about 300amps/day, I am advised. I shall be fitting 4x 180 Watt solar panels, but also wish to have wind generating capcity as additional. Tks your assistance Bobichan

Re: wind generators

Silentwindgenerator has the least noise and very good performance. It has been the winner of a few magasin test.

Here is the manual:

300ah a day? Are you sure?
That's 12 amps on average ... My TV, fridge AND autohelm hardly use that much all together.
