We have a Splendide non-vented unit under the counter in our galley. I'm not familiar enough with your layout to make a specific suggestion for you. I've seen them everywhere from the galley, to underneath tables to sail lockers.
I would offer some observations for the use of a W/D aboard. First, they burn power, so plan to run the generator or be plugged into the dock. Running the genset for a load of laundry will be expensive. They only use a few gallons of water to wash. However, the un-vented models use a ton of water and power to dry. Sounds funny, but they can't exhaust the heat, so they blow heat inside the drum, create condensation and wash it down the drain with fresh cool water. If you think you can find a place to vent it, all the better, but I've never seen that yet. Quick dry clothes are best, perfect actually. Small loads only. Heavy cotton, like denim, will not fully dry.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
