If you have 2 batteries you have a battery switch. It is most likely in the engine compartment. If there's only one battery, they may not have installed one, though i would have still liked to have the ability to shut off the 12V fro emergencies and when I need to do work. You can install one very easily. Follow the positive lead from the starter to the battery. It should be in between somewhere.

My 2001 did not. Just a On/Off switch. I added a second battery with an isolator.

I have a 94 Maxum 1800sr, Would it be necessary to install a 2nd battery to run say 6-8 Speakers on a small amp? And maybe sooner than later and 1 10" sub, Or would a Brand New battery due the trick. I just don’t want to be out in the middle of the water anchored out jamming out to the radio only to find out my boat wont crank. Thank you for any helpful advice.

Yes, you're going to want a second battery. If you can, find a spot for either one of these (they both have a 200 minute reserve capacity):
