AC Bilge Pumps?

I have a liveaboard with no engines and some major leaks. Our bilge pumps are essential to flotation at this point but I'd rather not be married to using DC batteries when we have access to AC all the time.

Do AC bilge pumps exist besides basement style sump pumps?

Does an AC to DC converter do the job in this case?
Does that exist?

thanks,
Rusty
