    The electric boats are only for a very specialized use.

    Changing and at times HUGE house loads , and moderate propulsion loads combined with large thruster loads at times.

    The ability to have 10 or 12 gensets and operate with optimum loading is for cruise ships , not most boats under 100ft.
