SV - You didn't really state how you use the boat, so tough to suggest AC or not. We've been discussing small generators on other threads, so ultimately if you use the boat for long weekends or something, you could simply bring a 1000watt generator and atleast have the ability to brew some coffee; with a low wattage coffee maker, of course. Or, since you are looking to save money now, simply wait awhile and then add a small inverter like a Xantrex, which comes with two AC plugs.

Either way, yes, you can live without AC.
