When you are at sea aboard a luxury bluewater cruiser, it’s essential you have reliable equipment on board, including an electrical generator.
For the owner of a big Riviera 48 based at Bermagui, a recent MASE transplant has brought a new level of power and confidence to extended boating trips. Like many gen sets installed in new boats, the unit on board ‘Georgie Girl’ wasn’t up to performing at peak times.
As it evolved the Yanmar powered MASE I.S. 12 generator set proved to have the capacity and compact installation envelope to suit their specific application.
“On board electrical power is all about having enough capacity to drive all the equipment,” said Craigh Hurst, specialist Yanmar marine engineer. “Too many people make the mistake of calculating the output capacity based on peak output. The figure that counts is continuous load.”
On ‘Georgie Girl’, Craigh Hurst and professional skipper Graham Baker did their calculations based on the assumption that the boat would operate in the heat of tropical North Queensland. With the air conditioning running 24/7, lighting, entertainment systems, fridges, freezers, washing machine and dishwater all operating at the same time, the question of capacity was soon resolved.
The MASE I.S. 12 has a continuous power rating of 10.2 kW with peak output of 11.2 kW. At the heart of the MASE is Yanmar’s 3TNV 3 cylinder diesel engine. Mase Marine Generators, powered by Yanmar engines, are said to feature low sound and vibration levels, efficient size, and built-in sound shields.
