If you are a full-time cruiser (or plan to be) traveling the world and depend on sustainable energy production, then you'll find the D400 fits the bill. It's the highest quality wind generator out there featuring no upper limit to maximum energy created (over 600W seen!), super efficiency, no/low maintenance, no noise, and no vibration. We are unique, selling the D400 as a package - only. This D400 package that we offer has all components and accessories ready to install, including a full manual on integrating the various pieces of equipment. The regulator, although not fancy, has proven time and again to be able to handle the variation of and extreme energy output. All you need is the pole (KATO is highly recommended) and wire.
We are the #1 worldwide online supplier of the D400 wind generator hands down - with actual cruising experience. We get you the parts whenever and wherever you need them, we answer any and all questions you might have about your particular situation and we are also available to design an energy plan of your vessel. You've landed on this page because you've seen one for yourself and/or you've done your research and concluded that this is the one you need.

FAQ before purchase?
600+W maximum (yes!!)
420 W @ 14 m/s (28 knots)
235 W @ 11 m/s (22 knots)
Starts charging @ 5kts.
12kts, 44W = 3.7 Amps
22kts, 235W = 19.6 Amps
28kts, 420W = 35 Amps
You will need a pole with the following dimensions: 42mm ID (inner diameter), 50-70mm OD (outer diameter). The D400 and the delrin sleeve sits INSIDE the 42mm ID pole.
See also the TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS tab just under the pictures for lots more information.
We recommend the Kato Pole Solution (within the US). Outside the US it would be easier to source and marine welder locally.
If you have installed Lithium batteries and are looking for a suitable wind generator system, we trade out the NCHC regulator/controller with a 6TB regulator/controller. The 6TB does not have the battery equalization setting, which spikes voltage to 15.9V.
The D400 is a direct-drive wind generator, designed for a variety of marine, rooftop or terrestrial applications. It is exceptionally quiet and vibration-free in operation, qualities that are of paramount importance for any wind generator operating in close proximity to people. The D400 features a powerful 3-phase alternator, and computer-designed rotor blades optimized for low speed, user-friendly operation. This innovative machine is extremely efficient in low wind speeds, yet is capable of sustained high power outputs of up to 500 watts in higher winds. Available in 12V and 24V.
