Products: Paguro 3000 Generator
"With a larger and more comfortable boat, our boating changed from our previous experiences on the water and thus we did not indentify the need for 240v until we had taken delivery of the Princess.
Days at anchor soon proved too much for the robust leisure batteries with mood lighting, fridges and electric toilets soon depleting the 12v system. Thus a suitcase Honda was acquired…. This was fine for keeping the water hot and batteries charged but did not allow oven use and other galley equipment remained idle. Although quiet we thought sometimes noise was an issue and it was a performance stowing and re stowing the Honda in the lazerette.
We researched the possibility of a retro-fit diesel genset of 3/5 Kva and liked the Paguro due its size and type – can accept brief higher than rated loads, and features.
When speaking to Advance Yacht Systems, we both found ourselves extremely comfortable with their expertise and advice – thus an agreement was struck that allowed total flexibility from both sides concerning the Gensets all- in price, location, installation, through hull inlet and exhaust outlets etc. AYS are great people to do business with and are very ‘can do’.
The job was undertaken much quicker than we had anticipated and indeed when we visited the boat after the Genset had been installed I thought that AYS had fitted our unit to the wrong boat so good was the condition when we opened the door! It was only when I went to the switchboard that my fears drop once I saw the newly installed operation panel in
place. The whole installation is first class and looks /
feels that it was fitted during build at the factory.
In use we find the Paguro excellent – it’s very quiet and allows us full use of the 240v systems O/B; just like shore power really. The after sales advice has been 1st Class too. Nothing is too much trouble at AYS and I have no hesitation in recommending Rod and his team to any individual or authority.
We like the Paguro’s features – ease of use, good control panel, oil change pump is handy as is access to the impellor and the ability to crank the unit by hand should the need arise.
We are very happy indeed with our decision and highly recommend AYS"
