For what you want, the simplest / cheapest choice is an all laminate acoustic guitar. Staying away from solid wood tops solves most of the climate problems for boat life. Keep it in a polyfoam or TRIC case, stowed as low as possible where it stays cooler, and perhaps wrapped in a sleeping bag or blankets to minimize temperature excursions. That is what I did when car traveling with wood guitars, and had no issues. A friend brought a couple of my "spare" guitars down from Alaska in the unconditioned compartment under his RV four years ago, without incident. Granted they did not divert through Death Valley.

Or go with carbon fiber and fear not. Lots of good options from the usual suspects....
