Amel connected almost of the bonding on Kimberlite with S/S hose clamps.
Haven’t had a problem in 14 years.

If you check that there is no continuity between the AC grounding (green/yellow) and the charger case AND there is no continuity between DC -ve and the charger case then it may be OK to connect it to the boat bonding. I would agree that the safest bet is to not connect the charger case to anything.
The article that Bill Kinsey provided a link to is very good. Interesting that it says "Do you have wires attached to sea cocks with hose clamps? Forget it. This is putting stainless and copper together, which are galvanically incompatible and it won't work" - I found Amel had done this on a cock I changed under the holding tank in the forward head at the weekend.
