If your boat has a DC bonding system, I would also suggest a galvanic isolator in series with the shore power ground wire to prevent galvanic current corrosion. Also, the ABYC recommendation is that a main shore power disconnect breaker be within 10 feet of the shore power inlet. As long as you meet this recommendation, you can put the AC distribution panel anywhere you want as long as it is readily accessible and protected from weather and water splash. If you install it next to the DC distribution panel, you should provide physical protection so that anyone accessing the rear of the DC panel cannot be exposed to energized parts of the AC panel.
