I might get crucified for saying this, but here' a suggestion for your AirBnB...
If your engine/shaft/prop works are exorbitant (likely) then how about just pull the engine out and sell it for a couple grand. Plug the holes in the hull, fair the deadwood, install the high lift steel rudder that your naval architect will easily design... and go engineless.
It's a floating hotel that doesn't move. If you want to go for a sail then take your two launches and use them as tugs to tow out of the marina into open water. Then sails up!
Might make some good marketing points on the brochure as well.
