Honda EU2000i

Nearly every sailboat (and some trawlers) down here in the Bahamas has a EU2000i. They're the best things going. Just plug it into your shorepower circuit. It's better if you have a 100amp charger so you don't have to run the Honda long. Starts first pull every time, after a season it sometimes needs a bit of choke to run and that's a sign that the carburetor is a bit dirty. Clean with carb cleaner and it goes like new again. Under $900 so it's quite affordable when compared to $10000 for a dedicated generator. As fo having to carry gas, that's no big deal. We already have jugs of dink gas so another jug isn't going to change things.
