As noted, this isn't a space or heat question, it's a power question. Do you have the fairly beefy inverter and battery capacity to run even a 600 watt microwave for even 10 minutes? The process of inversion and the particular high draw of a microwave (with its combination of rotation motor and magnetron) makes them quite power-hungry.

I would have the microwave and a propane stovetop, but I'd probably get a pressure cooker for the stove top to reheat stuff or to keep it hot until dinner on the water.

Of course, you're talking to a guy who has carried a Coleman camp stove into the cockpit and put in on a plank with no-skid...Mmmm...boat breakfast...keep 'er level, dear!

Microwaves are great at dock.
