Yacht Plugs International was born when the owners recognized the need for yachts to have an easy solution for hooking up shore power in different ports worldwide. By combining the most common plug configurations from around the world, the kit is able to cover 20 plus countries utilizing up to 3 phase, 125 amp, 480 volt power. A stationary plug end stays attached to the yacht's shore power cord at all times, with interchangeable adapters to fit most yachting destinations around the world. This eliminates the need to keep taking apart and reattaching existing shore power plugs. It also saves time, and gets the yacht hooked up to shore power quickly.
