On my previous boats I fitted a waeco charger (iu152 I think) and have moved over to my seamaster.
It's a great little unit that I leave connected all the time and has not let me down even over the winter months.
It has trickle/condition mode to keep batteries healthy and I fitted the remote control unit so that I can see at a glance what the unit is doing as it is under the floor near the battery compartment.
It has the facility to run a leisure circuit as well as starter battery and always keeps them in good condition.
One word of advice if you do go for the remote control unit, make sure that the rc unit is the correct colour, black for the older version, silver for the newer version, they look the same but are not interchangeable.
Coastwise I think about £300 for the charger and approx £50 for the rc unit.
I wouldn't be without mine but there are cheaper units out there
