Welcome to the forums from Africa

It may be easier and a lot less costly to try to get a 110/120v washer.

You can use an autoformer to raise the voltage. I specifically looked for units that could be inverter driven. You'll need to check the power requirements of your washer.

The following Xantrex unit is in limited supply and a bit on the costly side.

Step-Up/Step-Down Transformer 120-240-120 VAC | GoodBoatGear.com


Several listed here.

How do you get 110v on your boat? Is it from shore power, generator or inverter?
