Multiplus II + Cerbo GX + MPPT 250/100 or Easysolar II GX?

Hello, this is my first post in Victron community, I'm very happy to find a space like this.

Now, the question:

30 feet sailboat,

-48v electric motor (diesel engine is gone). I use the motor barely, it's a sailboat!

-110v marine AC 1085 watt

-Induction stove 110v, 1800watt (max) 15 minutes/day

-Freezer 110v, 1700watt, working all day.

Four solar panels, and 12v 100Amp lithium battery (4)

I need inverter, charger, MPPT and GX, my first option of course is Easysolar II GX, but after read the Cerbo GX specs and know the integration in MNEA2000 net...

Now the answer is Multiplus II + Cerbo GX + MPPT 250/100 or Easysolar II GX?

Any different idea for this installation? all advices are wellcome!!!

If you want to use the MDF integration via Ethernet (easier) you can use the EasySolar-II GX.
If you want to use the way over VE.Can to NMEA 2000 you will need a Cerco GX (or CCGX or Venus GX) because the VE.Can port at the MultiPlus-II/EasySolar-II GX are only for battery-can with 500kbit/s

BUT

Currently the MultiPlus-II/EasySolar-II are only available for 230V!.

Thank you Matthias, you are right, 230v, I'm European living in US, and I have a lot of appliances 230v, but the sailboat is American made, the wires, the outlets... everything is different, I got a big 110/220 5000 Watt transformer that may can help me...

The sailboat is gonna travel a lot, no internet for a long time, but I want to control everything, I think the best option is Easysolar II GX ( cheaper than Multiplus II + Cerbo GX + MPPT 250/100 )
