It is well known that all equipment – navigation, communication system or data tracking must have external power supply from batteries that are charged by the charger. The same rule applies to yachts. The lack of a properly adapted yacht charger means that the equipment is more likely to fail or malfunction.
What is a yacht rectifier?
The term “rectifier” is used interchangeably with the term charger. Simply put, a yacht rectifier is a device that changes AC voltage to DC. In effect, this means that it supplies electricity with a constant power, which is important for power systems, such as yachts and commercial ships.
These types of AC-DC chargers are in our offer. By using the latest solutions, they can be used on both yachts and commercial ships. These devices have an output current of 3 A to 150 A. We have the following models:
12 VDC / 6 A – 120 A
24 VDC / 3 A – 150 A
48 VDC / 15 A – 60 A.

In addition, we offer DC-DC chargers (stabilizing device; model 12-24-48 VDC / 8 – 30 A).
Which yacht chargers should you choose?
When choosing an AC-DC yacht charger, there are several criteria to follow. The first of these is trouble-free. Compatibility is also important – our devices are adapted to the requirements of all types of Li-Ion batteries. It is important to choose the right charger power for the size of the battery bank. What’s more, the range of power supply these yacht chargers can operate on is wide: 90-265 VAC / 47-63 Hz and 304-552 VAC / 3 Ph. So they can be used in both Europe and the United States, without the need for additional devices. The devices have ETL, UL, CSA and CE.
You also can’t forget about the type of charging – it has three stages in our chargers. This makes charging quick with minimal power consumption.
The safety of yacht chargers is equally important. The structure is protected against DC overvoltage and high temperature. An important parameter when choosing this device is also the size. The ones we offer are compact and lightweight, which allows them to be mounted in various orientations in a limited space. In addition, they allow free access to the cabling.
The main criteria for choosing a charger:
How many battery banks do you want to charge?
The battery charger must have the same voltage as the battery bank.
A practical rule is that 25% of the battery capacity (up to 50% for gel batteries) as charge capacity is sufficient for safe and quick charging of the battery during continuous power supply to the on-board network. For example, a 50 amp battery charger is enough for a 200 Ah battery.
