Up to you but even in reasonable humidity areas closed up boats can develop problems with mildew/mould. Most boats have areas where the air is stagnant and add a bit of humidity and mould can develop.

Use of a fan will help also as the forced circulation will push air past the dehumidifier so that air can be dried and the circulation will reduce or eliminate stagnant areas.

In our summer I don't use them but I am at the boat many times a week or we are using it.
In winter the humidity is higher, the boat is opened less so I do use two small units.
