To follow up on Danny33's post, you have some work ahead of you.
No offense, but it seems like you don't know much (if anything) about electrical systems. So, before you proceed, you (we) need to know:
-how many batteries you have
-how are they configured (start bank, house bank, just 2 batteries with a simple off, 1, all, 2 switch, etc.)
-do you have a charger (yes)? is it working? How much power is it putting out?
-does your boat have a shore power connection (yes)? Is it connected? Is it working? does it have an A/C system, or just A/C to D/C?
-what voltage level does your battery(ies) have?
Lastly, if you bought a new battery and installed it correctly, it should have more than enough power to start your engine. If it doesn't, then either the battery is bad (not likely), you didn't install it correctly, or something is wrong with your engine or wiring.
Again, I'm not trying to insult you, but if you own a Good Old Boat, and don't have a boat load of money, you need to become more knowledgeable in your ship's systems.
