Gasing from new battery charge

We installed a 240ah new lead acid battery today in our boat.
We started charging, once installed, with our generater through our shore power charger unit.
The initial charge started at 32amps at 14.4V and eventually dropped to float after about 1.5 hour.
At the start we smelt a sulphur smell and this continued until the battery went to float.
There was no obvious signs of damage or temperature increase just the smell.
Is this normal?
