Want to run loads of appliances on your yacht that you use at home? Then you need 240V installed.
There are three ways of getting a 240V supply:
- Having a generator
- Having an inverter
- Through a Public Distribution Network (shore power)
Appliances at home need a socket. These might include:
- Electric Shower
You can have these installed quickly and easily on your boat. This makes it more convenient to you and makes it feel more like home.
It’s not just appliances, your 240V supply can provide lighting, charge batteries, and water heating. It’s no fun waiting for the kettle to boil on the gas so you can do your washing up!
The electrics should be fitted to ISO 13297 by a domestic electrician registered on a competent person scheme. It’s important to make sure you’re RCD protected.
By the way, just to note, if you go for the shore power option, make sure you disconnect from the shore power before you set off. Remember “With great power comes great responsibility”
