I've got a Moody 419 centre cockpit yacht in New Zealand that's in need of a new 230v 50Hz AC system.
The main demand for AC power is the water maker pumps. Calculated loads 2.15kw ( 9.35amp ) but the start up loads will be higher.
From the marketing blurb on the new Mastervolt GPX-5 it looks like a very appealing combination of generator / inverter / charger that would suit my needs. However it's new technology and I'm interested t hear from anyone that has installed it and what the experience has been. Any teething problems? www.mastervolt.com/gpx
I have 450 amp hour gel 12v domestic batteries and it would seem from the literature that I might have to increase the capacity to 600 amp hour.
