Galley Nightmare

Forgive me but this is a real "punt in the dark" but I wonder if anyone can help with a small problem that I have? On Bimbling I have a three-burner range/oven which is now out of production; it is a Mobilite - originally built in Finland, it has a 3 burner hob and an oven.

I note from occasional earlier posts on Sailnet forums that some members own/owned Mobilite cookers on their boats.

As my Mobilite beast (defective) is fitted on my ketch which is located in Tortola, however, at the moment I am in the UK and have been offered an unbelieveable deal on a replacement cooker but I don't have the dimensions of the Mobilite with me, therefore, cannot be sure that the new unit will fit in the fairly tight aperture in my galley.

In order to capitalise on the great opportunity can anyone furnish me with the dimensions of the Mobilite, width, depth and height, by any chance?

Thanks in anticipation.

I'm not sure anyone knows. I'm not sure anyone could know. Most manufacturers made multiple models, so even restricting yourself to 3 burner models could still leave some uncertainty. Is there no one you can call or e-mail to get down to your boat and do the measurement of the space in which you hope to fit a replacement?
