Price for Kenyon Marine stove

Hi,

I have removed a Kenyon Marine Homestrand two burner, flush mount stove with cutting board from my boat. It's in excellent condition - age/model unknown (info label faded). Looks as if has never been used - very clean. I plan to place it for sale. Any thoughts as to a fair price? Kenyon Marine site does not list this model, so I have no reference as to price. All suggestions appreciated.
Thank you.

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.

Sounds like the stove on our boat. Where are you located, BAS?

Was probably about $300 when new. You can get a new Origo for about that now. I wouldn't price it at more than $100.
