The shorepower cable and receptacle is different, that will need to be changed to match US shorepower. The AC main breaker (RCD) may need to be changed depending on what's already there and to match the US shorepower chosen. If you chose a US 30a shorepower, the change is pretty easy. If you chose US 125/250v 50a, you then have the issue of how to split the 125v branch circuits across the (2) 125v legs of the main service
. Not insurmountable, it depends on how the main distribution box is setup.
The above is assuming you'll change the EU 230v appliances to US 125v appliances.
Yep the wiring is the easy part. When FP wires the boas for the US they use the same wires. They already use double pole breakers so one side simply becomes the neutral. Brown hot, blue neutral, green/yellow earth/safety ground.
Where it gets expensive and tricky. That boat will likely have a generator
, three or four air conditioners, a charger
, an inverter
, etc. That can not be changed over to us standards without replacement or the installation
of an expensive transformer. There are so many boats for sale
that unless you can absolutely steal the boat don't buy it for the US.
