Bertrand,

Does the marina have a 50 amp 220 volt plug?

Bertrand, keep in mind that a simple transformer will not deal with frequency. In france you have 50Hz, and it is 60Hz in the US and other parts of the world. So electronics won't work (washing machine, microwave,etc...). A simple coffee machine will work.
You may just be better off using your inverter providing 220v/50Hz and charging batteries with the generator/solar.
Check your charger, if it is a new one it may be able to accept 110v (but you may have to run a different cable).
good luck
