Marine Stoves, Ovens

We have just purchased a Cal 34, 1977,located in Belllingham WA. My wife and I intend to sail her to Seward, Alaska in June of this year, approx. a 3 to 4 week cruise with a 600 mile ocean crossing. This vessel does not have a built in range with oven. Previous owner used a portable propane stove and barbecue in cockpit. We want to install a real range top and oven. These older boats have no propane lockers. Our options seem to be to either install a propane locker in the lazaret with new through hull fitting for venting, or install a new alcohol fueled stove. The alcohol fueled Origo 6000 built in Sweden is the one we are considering. We would really like to use this stove and avoid propane. Anyone with thoughts on this.

Marine Stoves, Ovens

I have used an Origo stovetop for the past 13 years and really like the Origo. The stove is very reliable, safe and easy to use. Unlike earlier alcohol stoves, I find that things heat up quite quickly on the Origo. The burners are rated at a heat that is very close to a typical marine propane burner. (Land based propane stoves generally have higher heat ratings). The Origo seems to be very fuel efficient. I typically used less than a half gallon over a whole sailing season but the high quality alcohol suggested by Origo is not inexpensive.

I had just been through the same problem that you are going through in that my recently purchased boat''s propane locker was no where near legal, and there was no easy way to make the locker easy. I installed an Origo 6000. I have yet to use the oven.

I had also seriously considered the Wallas diesel fuel fired stove. These are really neat stoves. While pretty expensive the idea of using diesel is extremely appealing since alcohol and propane are not always easy to obtain but diesel is readily available everywhere.

Defender Marine has the Origo 6000 on sale on their website for $899 which is the cheapest price that I have found. http://www.defender.com/cgi-bin/Web_store/web_store.cgi?keywords=Origo&frames=yes&store=yes& Submit1=Search

If you decide to go with propane, I have a almost brand new Hillerange two burner propane stove/oven that I would like to sell. Email me if you are interested.

Good luck,
Jeff

Jeff, thanks for the report on the Origo stove. I think that is the way we will go.

I would be willing to bet no as the post is 7 years old.

CNG stove w/Oven

John, let me know if you're still in the market for a stove. I have a good, working Tasco 3 burner stove with oven I'm taking out of my boat for racing.
It's fueled by CNG, but I have all the parts (still installed and working)

That stove is long gone. I sold it to a friend almost immediately after posting that back in 2002.
