Precisiontemp looks like a winner. Their "junior hydronic" heating system gives hot water and cabin heat. I would be inclined to put propane aboard for that.

The most economical water heater that I have ever seen was a black coil and tank that sat on the cabin roof and was piped to the sink and head. Even on partly cloudy days it made warm water. He also had a diesel engine heater. This boat also has a wind generator and solar panels.

I've used solar hot water heat, and if you are someplace with bright sun & don't mind taking your showers after noon instead of in the morning...the "fixed" ones certainly work. I'd expect the plastic "hot water heaters" (black plastic bag that hangs in the sun) for camping use do a reasonable job the same way.

No, you can't use it as a sauna, but the alternative is always to boil a big pot of water and pour it into your shower bucket. Not elegant, but that still works nicely for a "Navy shower".
