Generators

A large part of SMS’s work is the sales and repair of marine generators. We are dealers for Westerbeke and Beta Marine generators. Our technicians have over fifty years of combined experience on all types of gensets, from a 4kw. Gasoline unit on a SeaRay, to a 500kw unit on a 115’ tugboat. Single phase or three, 240volt to 480volt, we have the capability to assist you with it’s repair, or it’s replacement. Often the repair of the electrical end of the generator can be accomplished by the installation of a re-manufactured generator that will save the customer money and provide a warranty.

In many yachts, a generator may be paired with a second in a parallel system or with an inverter to provide power when the generator isn’t running. We can troubleshoot and/or modify these systems as our customer’s needs change. Yachts are becoming more integrated where systems are no longer stand alone, but interface with many different aspects of the vessel. Generators are often neglected by many captains as a servant that doesn’t need any attention. These unsung heroes are often not thought about until they fail or go on strike! They need every bit the same service as your main engines and will live a long and dependable life with proper, regular service. Call us to see how we can help you take care of your generator and electrical system.
