With electric cooking and high levels of air conditioning featuring more heavily on luxury yachts, loads are high and space is still limited. This is where the 8.8 steps in to take the strain; our most powerful output from a footprint the same as the 7.5. With the durability and reliability the Westerbeke brand is famous for, the 8.8 is happy to take the load. While very quiet running, the sound output can be reduced further with the optional SST-Sound Guard.
Quiet, Compact and Reliable
Designed exclusively for marine applications, Westerbeke slow running diesel generators represent a breakthrough in compactness, quietness, and reliability that has become the industry benchmark and the preferred choice of the most prestigious boat and yacht builders.
Advance Yacht supplies both digital and analogue models with the start/stop panel mounted on the generator. We supply the main panel with a harness so that it can be mounted in a convenient location for easy operation.
Long Life & Easy Maintenance
The engine operates at a low 1500rpm and is fresh water cooled via a heat exchanger for durability in the marine environment. Easy access to most servicing points and individually removable top and side panels of the optional sound enclosure make for easy maintenance.
Peace Of Mind
Westerbeke's diesel generator performance is matched by their extensive global customer service network. Westerbeke work hard to make sure you are taken care wherever you are in the world, whether you need parts, warranty support or technical service.
The D-NET range of diesel marine generators is fully automatic, using state of the art Westerlink or optional NMEA 2000 canbus communication technology. The modern D-NET panel features ‘at a glance’ lights that indicate proper operation, monitoring battery and generator voltages, frequency, oil pressure, coolant and exhaust temperature.
The Westerbeke range of analogue diesel marine generators is designed for leisure and commercial applications where a simpler ‘classic’ control system is preferred.
SST Sound Shield
Engineered for silent operation and ease of servicing, the addition of a stylish and rugged SST Sound Shield reduces the average sound intensity of your Westerbeke up to 50%. Each of the 5 powder coated aluminium panels can be removed with a quick snap of 2 latches so you have full access to all four sides for ease of servicing.
5 year limited warranty for leisure users*
