Buy yourself a copy of latest Yachting magazine and look in classified ad pages at the end. You'll see a system that seems to be what you're looking for. Allows simultaneous talking/listening.

Here is the voice activated head set. Just couple it with two (or more) VHF radios and have at it.

Must be one hellava boat length to need the use of radios for two way communications.
