I would think an axial fan with a filter bag over the exhaust end would control cat hair and dust bunnies just fine. You might get by using a shop vac HEPA bag over a small house fan. That wouldn't cost much to try.
Or you could put the filter bag over the the cat...

I would personally use a small shop vac on both the boat and the cats daily, and hope the cats have no front claws, because if they do you may need the welding gloves on for the vacuuming ceremony.
