Looks like a knockoff of the AeroGen400. Not that it might be less capable but it’s going to have the same issues with noise and relatively low output and shading of the solar.

What I’m seeing a little bit is boats are starting to look at vertical axis turbines (VAT) under the spreaders where they won’t shade the solar panels over the stern and cockpit and they are less likely to shred sails in that location than a HAT would. While the VATs are less efficient per swept area than HATs the swept area of a VAT can be taller and narrow vs the HAT which has to increase the radius in all directions to increase area.
