If you are set on a kerosene unit, I would highly recommend the Taylors. Taylor is out of the UK, and there they call them "parrafin" rather than kerosene stoves. That might help your internet search. We had the -030 Cooker (which has two stove burners and an oven) for many years and it is a very nice unit. I mentioned in another recent thread that the heavy guage brass and stainless metal, as well as the enameled cook top are beautiful, and can almost double as a cabin heater (but it's not vented outside the cabin like a proper heater would be so you'd want to limit your operating time.)
But be prepared for sticker shock if you get a Taylor, even the little -030 Cooker. They are among the best boat stoves made, and they don't come cheap.
All that said, we now have a propane stove/oven and I wouldn't go back. It's just too easy and clean compered to kerosene (parrafin). No pre-heating, no odor, no residue, etc. But to each their own...
