I know these stoves well. Regretably these models have no inherent value. Pressurized alcohol stoves have pretty much become a shunned- obsolete technology of the past for a variety of reasons.
Basically, the thinking is that compared to propane and catalyzed alcohol they do not put out much heat, the flame is hard to see, they tend to have flare-ups and so have very high insurance premiums (I had to remove one from an old boat of mine just to get insurance), they are inefficient in tems of heat for the dollar, and replacement parts for some, if not most, models are pretty hard to come by and so on.
At this point, I would assume that this stove has served the boat well for many years and like all good things, its time has come and now passed.
