What about solar and/or an EFOY fuel cell generator? Then you have absolute silence! Oop, sorry for that loud exclamation point.

Hey Cap't Tom, appreciate your comments on 1980 Onans

When my 1980 MDJA 3kw Onan generator comes on the whole boat shakes from the initial explosion. When it finally warms up though it is very quiet on the outside with barely a flutter of water exiting from the exhaust. The vibration rattle is more noisy inside the boat.

Here is the only thing I am sure of: Don’t buy a single cylinder
Generator of any brand. You will hate it.

We recently replaced the tired original 9kw Kohler with a 4.5 Phasor. Half the weight, a third of the noise, and more delivered power. Would recommend the unit.

I also can recommend Phasor. I had the 15kw unit. In 7 years of cruising 6 months a year it provided faultless performance. It was also noted for being the quietest unit available.

The Dirona owners designed and operate their boat like a commercial ship. The Auto Start feature he installed to power up the Gen when their batteries hit 55% was a great idea.

For this use solar is perfect. Much cheaper, more reliable, no maintenance, no noise.

Add Firefly batteries and a 210 Efoy. The Fireflies will give you 370 of usable amps to power what you have described.

The Efoy for the Pacific Northwest, coastal BC and Alaska Pan Handle will work like a charm in cloudy rainy days, out performing solar, hands down.

Not cheap, no noise, peace of mind. Your situation is a classic case for an Efoy.
