A bow thruster is more desirable. Both is better. Hydraulic motors usually require you run your generator when you need to use them. If the main engine is used, there is the need for more RPMs. When you are docking at idle speed you may not have enough power for the pump. I would go with a good quality electric (constant run) motor, dedicated battery bow thruster. Then save your money and add a stern thruster next year, if needed.
