Also considering moving to a live aboard boat. Would get one for the boat too if the water usage is low. EDIT Looks like 10.5 liters of water per cycle on normal.
I was pondering whether these would make sense on a boat, too. First, you have to assume you have generator or shore power. Real cruisers, especially sailors, will probably balk at that idea.
Beyond that, it's just too darn easy to wash dishes by hand, if you ask me. Even if I run the generator for an hour or two a day, and run the dishwasher then, I'd probably still never use it. I generally have the dishes done (by hand) shortly after a meal anyway.
Then there's the space it takes up. Space is almost always at a premium on a boat. A boat big enough for one of these counter top units, is probably big enough for a proper built-in unit.
The only advantage I could see would be if you had to convince a spouse who wasn't sure about living aboard.
