If you're really concerned about water quality, use a good pre-filter to take out the particulates before it goes in your tanks, and add bleach to disinfect it, and use a good filter with a carbon element to get rid of the bleach and any chemicals that might have been missed by the first filter.
Using UV light-sterilization isn't really cost-effective or wise on a boat. Filtering makes far more sense—and you can buy a lot of filters for what a UV-sterilization system would cost you to buy, install and maintain.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
