Wallas stove/heaters

We have been using portable stoves on our boat since I deemed the Kenyon pressurized alcohol stove a fire hazard and took it out of the boat. At the same time, we have no heat on the boat other than electric when we are on shore power. we are ok with using the butane stove, but I have been contemplating buying an espar or webasto diesel heater for the boat. Then the advertising banner at the top of the page caught my eye. That Wallas stove looks like it could be an excellent way of getting both built in cooking, and heat on the boat, without installing a propane system. Does anyone have any experience with those units? How well do they cook? Are they reliable?

I do not have any experience with their stoves but install their heaters. Excellent quality and as far as the heaters a lot quieter than Espar and others - both inside and outside the boat.
The stoves are pretty unique - nobody else makes a comparable product as far as I know.

I only have experience with the Wallas forced air furnace (excellent) but have talked to two people that have the stove/heater units and both loved them.

We've got an Espar and if Wallas are a lot quieter then they must be pretty damn quiet. Have to say I like the look of them and they claim to use less power than Espar.

Re: Wallas stove/heaters

I looked at one of those Wallas stoves at the Annapolis show two years ago. It is quite a sophisticated device, which appears to be very well built. It had lots of nice features. I have never known anyone that has one though.

I have neighbors with Espar as well as Volvo Ardic and when they are running the exhaust roars a bit, quite audible to anyone nearby. Inside they are probably quiet.

I install Wallas for the local distributor and they are very quiet both inside and outside. Recently we installed a Wallas in a 39" SeaRay and when we fired it up it was dead quiet standing outside 3' from the exhaust - in a quiet boathouse.

Re: Wallas stove/heaters

Who is the local distributor in Victoria? River Marine carries them in Vancouver, I am just wondering if there are any price differences.

They are pretty pricey units unless I can find a used one.
