What to do about a 220V electrical system?

My friend is considering purchasing a boat coming out of a charter fleet that has a 220V electrical system, for use in the southeastern US and Bahamas. I know folks taking 110V boats to the Med buy step-down transformers so they can run battery chargers, tools, toasters, etc., but what do the Euros do when they come to the US? I imagine it would be a bit of a PITA to reconfigure everything for 110V? Anybody with firsthand experience care to chime in? Thanks!
