DC Generators

The FERRIS DIESEL CHARGERS are reliable, high-power battery chargers for marine applications. This engine-driven source of DC power mates an efficient, super-quiet, liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engine with our Powermax 150 Amp High Output Alternator. The FDC has a water-to-water heat exchanger, wet exhaust, and a very low profile.

Ferris Diesel Chargers are so efficient at charging batteries because they use a small diesel engine mated to a PowerMax High Output Alternator. The power of the engine is perfectly matched to the power required to run the alternator. There is no wasted energy as there is when running a large boat engine just for battery charging! With our line of FDC Chargers, you will be able to charge batteries quickly, and since they serve as a reliable backup to your existing charging sources you will never be without a reliable source of DC power.


We’ve taken the rugged, reliable, and proven Ferris Diesel Charger to a whole new level of performance, efficiency, and silence! These are the top of the line of Ferris Diesel Chargers. Up to 150 Amps of charging power, low-profile design & ultra-quiet operation, all packaged in a compact, 3 piece, sound attenuated, fiberglass enclosure!
