Have no experience with this, but it looks interesting:

Are you confident of being able to sleep through the combined noise of the A/C and genset on a 39 footer ? You might find that the noise is hard to escape.

The claimed fuel consumption of that unit is rather high at .88 gph. That size of genset should give 3 or 4 gph.

Just for the record, I have A/C on a 43 footer and hate it. The unit came with the boat.

You'll need to balance the weight. It's a light boat. I would talk the Bavaria factory on how best to balance it.
