I have a Force 10 cabin heater which is bulkhead mounted and originally set up to use diesel. The best thing that I ever did to the boat was to convert from diesel to propane plus the diesel was a hassle liting the flame. It puts out about 6000 btu/hour so is much smaller than some other brands, but I liked the small diameter flue camparred with the others. Could not bring myself to cut any larger holes in the deck. I mounted a fan over the heater so I get good distribution in the saloon, but depending on your setup something else may be better to allow using duckwork.
