An Introduction to Marine Wind Generators
Marine wind generators are designed to charge batteries onboard boats & yachts. To be suitable for marine use, a wind generator needs to be carefully designed, reliable and built with marine grade components. Wind generators or turbines are often combined with solar pv panels to form a 'hybrid' battery charging system.

A smooth running, quiet wind generator is essential for a peaceful night's sleep. It also improves relationships with other fellow boatowners, who are looking to spend a weekend relaxing on their boat, ideally without the sound of a howling banshee ringing in their ears. 





An Introduction to Marine Wind Generators



Leading Edge LE300 Wind Turbine (MARINE)
Built in the UK to last for many years, the tough little LE300 wind turbine has become very popular with boat owners due to the fact that it outperforms other similar-sized turbines. Suitable for marine and inland use, the LE300 now carries a 5 year warranty.

Marlec Rutland 504 Marine Wind Generator - 12v
The Marlec 504 is a compact, reliable marine wind generator ideal for trickle charging batteries when away from your boat. The high inertia alternator design maintains momentum between gusts of wind like a flywheel, providing a more constant output, resulting in more charge into the battery.

As Marlec's smallest wind generator, the Rutland 504 stands out from the crowd with it's safety blade design. The 504 has a unique outer ring to provide protection from the blades, providing less chance for accidents or for the blades to get tangled in the boat's rigging.

The Rutland 504 has a brushless alternator design with a fixed, rather than rotating shaft. Built for a harsh marine environment using durable materials, the 504 will provide many years of maintenance-free battery charging.

Marlec also produce a range of suitable charge regulators, designed to prevent the battery from being overcharged. A range of marine mounting kits are available. Full details here.

Suggested charge regulators : Rutland HRSi, Rutland HRDi (with display).

Marlec 504 Marine Wind Generator - Features :

- 510mm rotor diameter, turning radius 304mm, net weight 3.5 kg.
- Power output ratings: 25 watts in 19 knots of wind, max output 60 watts.
- Low start-up wind speed of only 5 knots means more power is generated.
- Low friction 3 phase brushless alternator for high efficiency.
- Encapsulated windings and magnets for reliability.
- Tough, injection-moulded aerofoil blades.
- Smooth and silent operation.
- 12v model available.
