Paguro 4000

4.0 kW


Call for our current price

The Paguro 4000 is our most popular generator. Ideal for when you want to charge your batteries and have plenty spare for a couple of air conditioning units and a watermaker as well as the usual TV, laptop, electric kettle, microwave, hair dryer, etc. This powerful unit will even start and run a small dive compressor such as the Bauer Junior or the Coltri Sub. The 4000 would be a good choice for boats in the 40’ – 50’ range wanting a similar facility as having standard shore power – it has a 15A output.

The power output quoted above is the continuous rating at 230V and when the power factor is 1.0.

This model is also available in a 120V 60Hz version. For the 120V 60Hz version, please contact us directly to place an order.

Please call us on 01794 523900 for details of our special offers.

Additional Information


Firm favourite
Our best seller; the Paguro 4000 has been around for many years and is a well known firm favourite. Retaining the fundamentals of its original design, it has been developed over the years and is recognised around the world under various badges – early HFL, Mastervolt, Dolphin by GenACis and Westerbeke.

Clean sine wave
Using modern skew cut synchronous alternator windings producing a clean sine wave, the Paguro 4000 is excellent for running TV, laptops and other common domestic equipment.

High start load capability
The oversized synchronous alternator delivers high start load capability – over 300%, great for starting power hungry equipment such as multiple air conditioning units, watermakers and for those of you who are diving enthusiasts, will even start and run a Bauer Junior of Coltri Sub dive compressor.

Optimum performance using raw water cooling
If you have been told scare stories about the use of raw water cooling in small generators, let us assure you that the Farymann engine used in the Paguro 4000 is designed to run with raw (sea) water without problems. It is manufactured with a grey cast iron head and block and has been in use for many years. Reports of problems with corrosion are related to generators manufactured by competing brands that use aluminium water cooled alternator housings. These have small machined channels which block up with salt and corrosion, causing the alternator and engine to overheat. Paguro's intelligent design utilizes a stainless steel cooling water drum around the alternator to avoid these problems. Raw water cooling of the alternator enables your Paguro 4000 to produce an excellent level of continuous power and it will not de-rate when being used in higher temperatures.

Peace and quiet
An enhanced triple skin soundproof capsule with advanced anti-vibration feet (internal and external), ensure noise and vibration are kept to a minimum and you (and your neighbours!) can relax on board with all the power you need.

Easy to operate
Your Paguro 4000 comes complete with an easy to read remote control panel and 13m cable, ensuring it can be sited in a convenient location on your boat. It has a unique real time power monitor so that you can see ‘at a glance’ how much power you are using and how much is available.

Energy saving
Using just 0.35 litres of diesel per kW (being used) per hour equates to a likely average consumption of less than 1 litre of fuel per hour.

Engineered for simplicity and reliability
Manufactured using proven techniques and high grade materials to ensure a long life in the marine environment; for example, the water cooling jacket and exhaust manifold are fabricated in 316L austenitic stainless steel to prevent corrosion, enabling optimum raw water cooling.

Easy to service
The split capsule can be easily removed, allowing access to all service points. Fitted with an oil change hand pump, servicing is a clean and simple job.
