Mildew/Ventilation problems.

I live aboard my boat in FL and have an marine AC that both heats and cools. Yet the way that my boat is designed, I am getting condensation in the winter. Unfortunately an indoor/outdoor carpet was used to line the walls and ceiling of my V-berth, and I am beginning to get mildew problems. There are so many options that vary between dehumidification and ventilation that I thought it would be best to tap into the experiences and opinions of the experienced people on this site. I take my boat out regularly, so I am trying to find a low power solution that would work on the hook as well as at dock. I am leaning towards solar ventilation and a fan. I read older posts regarding ventilation versus dehumidifying, but they were a few years old, so there may be better technology available now, and this topic was not always the main focus of the thread. Thanks in advance.
