Question 80mph boat with AC/gen 30+ feet???

I have a buddy looking to upgrade from a 25' Baja to something bigger with twins or triples that runs 80 and has AC/Gen. What brands would you recommend. His price range is in the ~80k or so

I don't think a whole lot in that price range but well see what others say.

not. Marine gas gens have much more stringent safety systems and protections on them. Diesel gens are made to run in boats with diesel motors and diesel fuel tanks.

So why would they do that? Seems like it would be a pain to have to fill it with diesel.
Still a nice boat.

My assumption would be they needed more kW.

That Mase diesel genset is awesome. It was chosen by the original owner, and we have installed several of them. (I've known that boat since new; know the original owner and current owner very well--it's the boat that turned me on to ATs years ago.) It SIPS diesel, one tank of diesel lasted the first owner more than 2 seasons! The diesel genset produces no carbon monoxide so it is much safer than a gasoline setup. Albeit we have installed several gasoline gensets lately.
