Schematic Recommendation

I’m in the process of upgrading the system on my sailboat and a little overwhelmed by the complexity of most of the schematics from Victron. Can’t seem to find one that closely resembles what I’m trying to do.
-1 lead acid start battery

-100 amp internally regulated alternator

-Orion 12-12 30 amp isolated DC-DC charger

-2 206Ah Lithium batteries w/ integrated BMS

-1 Multiplus 3000 12v inverter charger

-2 Victron MPPT charge controllers to be added (planning two arrays totally approx. 600 watts)

-Cerbo GX

-Both AC and DC

Can someone point me in the right direction in terms of an appropriate schematic?
Thanks in advance!

Since you are still at the planing stage, if you did not bought anything yet, you should consider going for a 24V or, even better, for a 48V system. It is more suitable for a 3000VA inverter than a 12V system.

Maybe on my next boat. I have already purchased and installed the 12 volt Multiplus so committed down this path for now.
