With the dropping Euro, the prices of Euro boats are definitely looking better. Like having a 15% price reduction without even making an offer! Some of this depends on your intended use. If you're looking at long cruises, like a circumnavigation
, then the 220 volt issue is less of a concern. You'll be dealing with the problem in one place or another, no matter what.
If you're looking at being more in 110 volt area, then it makes more sense to look for a 110 volt boat. They are easier to convert to use an isolation/step-up/step-down transformer for use in 220 areas, since the gauge of the wiring
on your boat will be heavier for the 110. The same is not true in reverse (unless the factory put in the heavier gauge wire for all boats they make). Then, you only have to worry about whether your appliance is 50hz and 60hz compatible -- many are! Many aren't.
Good luck in your search.
P.S. The only problem with the currency conversion is this: The Euro has dropped, quickly. It can go back up quickly, too! You might make an offer thinking about the conversion, today, but find it has changed by the time closing comes around. Therefore, you might make the offer in USD and let the seller take the gamble in the currency market.
