Quiet and Compact

Operating at 1800 RPM with a tuned air intake silencer and four point vibration mounts, the 5.5 BCD runs smooth and quiet. Designed specifically for those installations where height is extremely limited, this generator has one of the smallest envelopes available in its class.

Powerful, Lightweight and Reliable

The 5.5 BCD is powered by an industrial .95 liter engine supplying a full 5.5 kilowatts. A very popular generator, the 5.5 BCD continues to support the strong record of reliability Westerbeke has built supplying generators to the United States Navy and Coast Guard as well as commercial vessels and pleasure craft.

Easy Operation and Maintenance

To minimize engine maintenance, the 5.5 BCD operates at a slow 1800 RPM and is fresh water cooled for longer life. Easy access to all servicing points and individually removable top and side panels of the optional sound enclosure allow easy installation and maintenance.

Full Torque, Power Take-Off Interface

A customer sourced, electric clutch and hydraulic pump can be mounted to the full torque, power take-off interface for use with such items as bow thrusters, compressors, winches and “take-home” systems.

Five Year Limited Warranty

The 5.5 BCD is backed by Westerbeke’s 5-year limited warranty. The presence of Westerbeke in over 65 countries around the world provides customers with easy access to parts, service and technical support worldwide. Established in 1937, Westerbeke is committed to providing its customers with quality products and unequaled after sales support.
