Hi, I went to our local hardware store Mitre 10 in Kaitaia (pop 5000) in the far north of New Zealand and off the shelf got a faucet identical in every respect to the original. Mine had the pull out function. Incredible I thought, instaled in France year 2000. replaced with identical from Kaitaia year 2016.

First of all, I am not a plumber.
However, we just replaced the original kitchen faucet with a US brand Comllen. The threads on the boat galley pipes are pipe thread. Not sure exactly what was on the new faucet, but an adapter readily available at the local hardware store (US) did the trick.
If I could get it to work, then almost anyone can. By the way, the new faucet is great, spray option and the end pulls out about 18 inches. Don’t know why we didn’t replace it years ago, makes washing dishes so much easier.

Before I buy anything I want to be sure I understand the connection issues. If I buy a Grohe faucet in the US I can install it on my boat without an adapter if I use the supply lines already in my boat. If I use the Grohe supplied lines that come with the faucet, I need an adapter because they would be 3/8 inch NPT vs 3/8 inch BSPT. Is this correct or am I totally missing it ?
