When you consider the functionality of a generator, you may realize that your vessel actually has two engines, technically speaking. Generators run like smaller engines, using diesel from your main fuel tank to power the electrical components of your vessel. This is especially important when you’re not running your main engine, which may be when you’re anchored or at the dock. Diesel generators are exceptional at converting diesel fuel into electricity while maintaining lower volume levels. If you’re looking for service, maintenance, or new installations of a diesel yacht engine generator, we encourage you to reach out to our teams at Gulf Coast Diesel Service and Marine Diesel Specialists.
