Good noiseless 24-12V converter/charger

What is a good converter from 24V bank to 12V that provides 13.6V solid voltage at 20-25A? I would like to use it for powering my 12V electronics (like the DSM300 sounder), charge the 12V batteries for the bow thruster and the SSB radio.

I have tried cheap impulse 24-12V converters, they work well for the electronics but are noisy for the SSB. You cannot change the voltage on most.

I have heard that linear converters have less noise but are so inefficient that it may be better to go 24V bank, inverter, 220-12 charger.

What is the best, reasonably priced option?
