Question 12 and 24 volts systems

Hello, anybody out there could give some advise ,my boat is a Nicholson 44 and has 24 volts system , in the US 12 volts eletronics is more available ,so I was thinking to have bouth systems,can I run 3 batteries banks as (2 )24 volts and one 12 volts ? or is better to stick to one system ? Tks
The reason is I just bought a windlass horizon 1500 simpson lawrence (ebay)and is 12 volts and I can't return it so maybe I could use a 12 volts batteries bank just for the windlass and other electronics. and keep the 24 volts as the house bank.
