I have lost track of the topic more than a bit but it its a 24V engine system and 12V domestics then I doubt anything like Col bought would have enough output.

I'd assumed t'other way around Tony, based on his 24v Mastervolt Combi.

See transformers don't work on DC, only in A.C.. 

 

A 24-12 volt buck boost converter would do the job though.

Thought I said that but getting a buck module big enough to charge a depleted 12v battery may be difficult. He could try that battery equalizer off Col............................

 

Its all supposition anyway as we still cannot be sure how this boat is wired, it needs a pro in there to sort it.

Having been fascinated by this thread and other recent threads on the same subject it would appear to me that the advantages of 24v are insufficient to persuade me to ever contemplate going down the 24v route.

I agree Phil.

12V is bad enough when trying to manage charging via 3 sources with a big inverter, no cow thruster and attempting to get more than 2 years out of a cheapo set of lead acids. I see no point wotsover in complicating it further. KISS.

Do you need a BS certificate as well as a BSS ?

As I see it, the only benefit of 24v is the ability to use thinner cable - far outweighed by the scarcity of 24v 'stuff' at canal side chandlers and the hassles shown in the recent threads.

Only if you are worried about catching BSE.
