Updating electrical system

I just purchased a 87 Pearson 39 and plan to refit the boat. There is very little equipment on the boat, no batteries, older charger, etc.
I will be keeping the boat on a mooring for the foreseeable future and would like some thoughts, insights on the most practical way to power the boat.
This year I would like to get the basics installed and then be able to add a wind generator next year or so.
My thought is to go with 2 bank, one isolated starting battery and two house batteries. I would like to be able to use solar to keep charged while on mooring and maybe more if doable. I've read so much, including all of Nigel's book and articles but wondering what other people have done. Thanks in advance for any and all info, thoughts.
David
