We have an 8kW Kohler in a sound shield (Taswell 49) and it is quiet, but not like dock
power. It is a 3 cylinder, running at 1800 RPM
? Are you talking generator model or just boat model ?
My wife was really concerned about it, so we requested the owners put the sound shield back on for the sea trial so we could get a baseline. Some boats are louder that we have been aboard, but it depends on brand of generator, as well as sound insulation
mounting, # cylinders and gen RPM
. And to crank it up, usually it takes a contract/deposit/sea trial arrangement.
one new, I'm surprised you haven't been able to arrange through the agents a visit on a similar boat with one.
