European Voltage Boat brought to North America

Question:

Hi Jeff, Absolutely love you videos as I am a pure novice in these matters. I am seriously considering buying a boat in Europe and ultimately bringing it back to the US. I mainly do offshore racing and long distance cruising and have rarely used shore power over the last 25 years, but never say never. Any words of advice or articles on potential issues/solutions when using a 220 volt wired boat in US waters/facilities. I plan to have all the proper equipment, converter, inverter, generator, etc.  Thanks. - Dan

Answer:

Hi Dan, Thanks for the feedback on the videos. Here's a Pacific Yachting Tech Talk article on converting a European 220 VAC to North American 120 VAC boat's electrical system:
