As a practical matter, you can not install enough batteries on your boat to run a 16,000 BTU air conditioner from an inverter
. You might get an hour or two before the batteries are discharged.
If you intend to run an air conditioner on your boat, you need shore power
or a genset, properly sized for the AC.
