Jet washing boat and outside of engine is fine, but avoid prolonged close spray. No reason to clean under engine hood, other than engine tray with warm water. Spraying water in there is likely to cause issues. 3-in-1 white lithium grease is good for exposed earth points and battery terminals afterwards.

Is that with or without VAT?

Close range jetwashing electrics whether it be wiring or components is never a good idea unless you particularly enjoy taking apart, drying & reconnecting things.
High pressure water will enter connectors etc with ease - bear in mind such items are intended to cope with splash.
Be careful with paint work as well, pointblank pressure washer can remove chipped paintwork with surprising efficiency!
