We have a 1986 Albin 34 Family Cruiser with the single Commlns 5.9
engine Our boat was orignally sold without a generator. We bought the boat a few years ago and determined the generator had been installed around 1999. The generator is a Kohler 5 KW which powers the boat very well even with both air conditioners running.
The installation was done on the port forward in the engine compartment. Plenty of room. The only problem we found was a port list due to the weight of the diesel generator. We lived with it until I found 300 pounds of lead to install on the staeboard aft the water heater.
Hope this helps
