The new 5.5 EGCD genset from Westerbeke is powered by a compact 0.95-liter, 3-cylinder diesel with smooth, quiet operation at 1,800 rpm.
It’s rated at 5.5 kW/60 Hz and incorporates electronic governing for cleaner emissions and improved speed control, which virtually eliminates “droop” when load is applied or removed, according to Westerbeke. The 5.5 EGCD meets all EPA emissions requirements. $11,800. Westerbeke Corp., Taunton, Massachusetts, (508) 823-7677. westerbeke.com
