    I am considering buying a 4 kW diesel generator for our sailboat, and am
    interested in opinions on various makes. So far, I have not seen too many
    makes, and would appreciate info on types I have not yet looked at. I have
    looked at: Westerbeke ($$$), FischerPanda (can't find a dealer), Entec, and
    American Generators.

    We have an Entec and love it. A friend just installed
    a Next Generation and is very happy with it so far.

    I have a NextGen 5.5 and despite a few minor issues with sensors, it has
    run fine for 2 years. It has a 8KW gen on it with a motor set up for
    5.5 KW. It can run 110 and/or 220. If you buy one.... get a spare
    capacitor (they are heat sensitive), spare relay, spare Oil and temp
    sensor AND buy the battery charge option. (The system eats 12V power for
    it's excitor and monitoring system) Kubato parts are available at any
    Kubato dealership.
