Not really. Your boat will get the power it needs at the voltage it needs up to the capacity of the breaker on the dock. True, if you're trying to draw 50 amps and you've inserted a transformer, the dock breaker should trip but how often does that situation occur?

Just make a note not to run the central vacuum at the same time you're using all four stove burners and the oven and the AC and you should be fine.
