Typically electric boat conversion kits start at about $5,000 and go up from there. Batteries are not included. A recent electric boat conversion I worked on was done with a DC motor, controller, throttle, motor mounts and cost about $6,200 installed. With the size sailboat you are considering (unless I am missing something) you should be able to have a running electric propulsion system in place for about the same money plus the cost of batteries.

I hope this has been helpful.
