Onan generating set OR genset


Explanation:
Onan is an American manufacturer of electrical generating equipment.

groupe (electrogène) would normally mean an (electricity) generating set, or in more colloquial, less formal jargon, 'genset'

Given the size of boat being discussed, I feel that the idea of generator may be more appropriate than battery bank.

12kVA is huge for a battery bank, but quite average for a (possibly diesel?) generator.
