For those of us who call stateside home, traveling to foreign ports can often present a minefield of problems one just has to navigate through. Besides the usual waiting time for customs clearance, and the sometimes grueling and seemingly never ending inspection process, visiting boaters trying to plug their boats into dockside power can leave one no other choice but to run the on board generator to keep things going.

Now U.S. boats destined for international waters can rely on safe ship-to-shore power options from Hubbell and its 63 amp, 230 volt products. This is the only CE-certified electrical shore power system dedicated to overseas use.

Like other Hubbell international shore power offerings, this configuration utilizes standard NEMA designs not normally found in the marine market.

Constructed of 316 stainless steel, the 63 amp products resemble ordinary shore power fixtures. Built to Hubbell’s high quality standards, they offer a watertight seal. A nickel-plated rear enclosure and contact blades ensure corrosion resistance. The unique thermoset interior resists arcing and heat build-up 400% more than typical interiors. Pressure-screw terminals deliver secure terminations.

Hubbell also offers 100, 125 and 200 amp pin and sleeve shore power systems, including back boxes and feed-through boxes for inlets and receptacles.
