A marine generator is an alternative power source that's used to power a boat when it is not at shore or when its engines are shut down or shore power is unavailable, i.e. anchored at sea. This alternate power source saves battery power and uses considerably less fuel than the main engines.
A marine generator differs from the ordinary residential or industrial generator in that it is designed and constructed to withstand the moisture and corrosion problems associated with the marine environment. Additionally, the vast majority of marine generators don’t need a self-contained cooling system, being cooled instead by hydraulic pumps constantly circulating seawater through the generator core. Thus, a marine generator will take less space in the usually cramped engine spaces of the typical recreational or work boat.
Beware of confusing an inverter with a marine generator; each is a separate electrical power producer. An inverter will convert a vessels battery power, which is direct-current (DC) into a weak alternating-current (AC) to provide power. A generator, on the other hand provides constant AC electricity independent of the batteries. This can be a serious consideration when attempting to start an inverter-equipped boat with drained batteries.
