Funny you should ask...
I just bought a new set for my house. It may be a little big for a boat, but I will share what I learned. I bought the Sony Bravia 32" KDL-32S3000. Its a great LCD. Why did I buy it? Its flat black, the response time is 8ms(very important), aspect can be changed in HD(not so for some brands), the remote is simple and intuitive, no big glowing "on" light. Don't be fooled by contrast ratio, there is no standard measurement for this. Anything around 1600/1 normal is fine. The Bravia is 1600/1 and 8000/1 dynamic, but the numbers are nonsense. If you are not going bigger than 32", don't bother with 1080p/i, you won't notice the difference from 720p. You will need a set with an HD tuner if you plan on using an antenna. For the smaller sets, I liked Samsung.
