John, it depends on things you have installed on boat. If you're purchasing new, just ask for a 110V system. If it's already built on 220V you should consider many factors. I personally dislike the input transformer (a bulky transformer input 110V - output 220V). Besides the size/weight/etc you never know how many things you'll install in the future, requiring upgrades and lost of investment, and not all systems accept 50HZ vs 60Hz. Look to wich appliances are connected to AC, like freezers, microwave, airconditioning, batt charger, inverter, genset, etc ... some of them would take both 110/220 50/60Hz simply changing a switch, and some are automatic. But majority of heavy load (microwaves/aircon/etc) doesn't have such double power input. Then plan a replacement for others. The more you have installed, the more costly will be your project and certaily will ruin a good deal. Think twice ....
