Generator Install

My wife and I have a 2009 Mahe and we are considering 2 options for a generator - primarily to run at least 1 of the 3 A/C units while at anchor.

Easy less expensive option is to do what the prior owner did - buy a small portable Honda and plug it in the shore power receptacle, running it as needed located in the cockpit.

Or install a small diesel in a permanent location somewhere on the boat.
I'm looking for input on this option from someone who has had one installed either by the factory or after delivery. I know the diesel is heavier, more expensive, and can be louder, but should offer more convenience of operation. I have 30HP Volvos in the engine bays now - not a lot of room there.

Re: Generator Install


You may want to read through the Mahe A/C thread to see what others have done.
This one maybe of interest to you.

Save this below link, as it is the best place to start your Mahe info searches. Remember to view both pages.
