We agree we've done and continue to do it. You may
also want to get a 120 volt 30 amp plug as well. This
of course means you'll need a new battery charger to
handle both 220 and 120. We just installed a unit
from Dolphin that does the trick quite well.
We also added a True Sine 24 volt to 110 volt inverter
to do away with Amel 220 to 12 volts..

You absolutely do not need to replace the cord with
a 4 wire cord. the stock cord is more than
sufficient as the boat does not use the white
neutral wire as normally found on USA boats. Just
get a 50 amp plug. hook the brown to the black in
the plug. hook the green to the green in the plug ,
and the blue to the red in the plug and you are
ready to plug into any 50 amp outlet in the USA or

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] 220v shore power cord
I am in the process of purchasing a 1998 SM in theUS. I have been
told by a surveyor and electrician that the stock220v shore power
cord does not meet US electrical code standards,and that the cord
needs to be replaced by a 4 wire, minimum 10 guagecord. The
replacement cord is much heavier and thicker, andrequires the groove
in the aft lazarette cover to be enlarged. Hasanyone had experience
with replacing this cord? Thanks.
