Rated at 8 kW, Westerbeke’s 8.0 EGTD generator has a compact 1.3-liter, 3-cylinder diesel that operates at 1,800 rpm.
Standard features include over- and under-speed protection; low oil pressure, high exhaust and high coolant temperature shutdowns; an AC circuit breaker; and a 50-amp battery-charging alternator. Electronic governing improves emissions and speed control to reduce “droop” when a load is applied or removed. $14,195. Westerbeke Corp., Taunton, Massachusetts, (508) 823-7677. westerbeke.com
