Diesel generator
Is there any among the members who could give me advise on the best place for a dieselgenarator on a Swan 47

In my case the generator and the watermaker system are centrally located between the two aft berths in the vane under the small entrance ladder.
I hope you can see from the pictures

Thanks, Mateo,
Have you sacrificed the fridgespace for this solution?

My boat is a Mk I Interior plan. The kitchen area has adequate fridge capability and two cells on the sides of the oven.
There is no fridge in the aft cabin. The space abaft the ladder of the cabin is occupied by the high pressure filters of the watermaker. Under the ladder there is at starboard the generator and at port the low pressure filters and the two pumps of the watermaker.
Fair winds, Matteo

Hi Alexander,

We had our generator relocated from the aft cabin ( in front of the fridge amidships) to the fore cabin between to the 2 bunks. This involved a bit of carpentry to modify the small locker between the bunks. I did it primarily to trim the boat which had become aft heavy because we had put in a lighter carbon rig. Other benefits have been quite aft cabin with a bit more space, and easier to get in and out of the aft companion way, which we have cut out for washboards.
