That's the stock galley range on our '88 boat. We cook and bake with it on every cruise, every year. It's a great stove.
Early in the thread, someone denigrated alcohol stoves for taking "all day" to heat, or somesuch foofaraw.
That's just not so. A given BTU burner heat output is the same no matter what you "burn" to create those BTU's.

I have cooked with a propane stove for a decade on our prior boat and it's great, too. It does require a quality plumbing installation and special fuel storage, with working sniffer and remote gas shutoff, keep in mind. ($$$)
The present boat galley (we bought this boat in '94) is working great also, with its Origo 6000. It's simple and "it just works."

No really wrong answers, just different choices...
You gotta heat up that coffee somehow...
