I'm not an expert on electricity and I don't know what or how but FP now say that the 220V boat we ordered will have a switch to change her over to 110V shore power input whenever necessary.

Re: Electrical - 110 and 220 Volt Systems

Sander,

Ask them if they also change the frequency.

You can change the voltage (up or down) easily using an auto isolation transformer, like Victron. I have the manual version on my boat and it works great! But, it only changes the voltage.

Oops, I just realized that the post I replied to is very old...

Galley Plugs

Helia 44 Owners,

We wanted another plug in the Galley, so we added one.

I used a Multi tool to plunge cut the hole through the 3/4 inch wall.

Used 12 gage marine wire, just as the factory did.
