Westerbeke 5.5 BCD Details and Specifications

Westerbeke Diesel Generator: 5.5 BCD, A truly low profile 5.5 kilowatts....

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.
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.
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.
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.
The 5.5 BCD is backed by Westerbeke's 5-year limited warranty.
