If money is not an object, Paneltronics and Bass Products will both customize panels in almost any configuration you want.
Bad idea. The AC panel needs to have a double breaker for the incoming power, so that you can break both the neutral and hot lines. If you don't have this and have a reverse polarity situation, you end up with live 110 AC wiring on the boat because the neutral line wasn't interrupted.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
