    You will probably need to change out the wiring unless your boat is a model that commonly had a factory upgrade from 12 volt to 24 volt. I would look into it a little more. You don't want to starve your motor for power or overload the wiring.

    A lot of newer boats come pre-wired for 24 volts but then only 12 volts a put to use. If it's a newer model boat check with the dealer about how it was wired originally.
