We have an 8kW Kohler in a sound shield (Taswell 49) and it is quiet, but not like dock
power. It is a 3 cylinder, running at 1800 RPM
? Are you talking generator model or just boat
My wife was really concerned about it, so we requested the owners put the sound shield back on for the sea trial so we could get a baseline. Some boats are louder that we have been aboard, but it depends on brand of generator, as well as sound insulation
mounting, # cylinders and gen RPM
. And to crank it up, usually it takes a contract/deposit/sea trial arrangement.
one new, I'm surprised you haven't been able to arrange through the agents a visit on a similar boat
