On large boats with multiple generators, it's common to have one installed in a space away from the engineroom so when working there is no noise.
In most yachts, a bow location for the generator puts it far away from the owners cabin. A wet exhaust near the waterline isn't going to send fumes aboard in most cases. Lot of commercial fishing boats have their engines as far forward as possible to make more space available for a fish hold.
