Is AC power really needed on a boat that never sees a dock?

Im redoing the wiring in the boat since most of it is shot. The boat stays at anchor all the time and never gets hooked into shorepower. Ive already started removing the old wiring and will be working on the rewire soon. I just don't see a need for 120v on the boat anymore. If i only do the 12v system, ill save alot of money on the rewire.


Heres the reason for rewiring the boat.



How the boat hasn't burnt to the waterline, i don't know.
