I’m considering using what you have.  I want defrost vents on the windshield and wonder how well heat would find it’s way into the cuddy

The nordic DT looks awesome, thanks for sharing kennneee. A bit expensive but looks like an awesome solution for a heater and stove combo.

I bought this diesel heater for my crestliner sabre. Works great,  all aluminum housing, simple control knob and cheap.

Does it work while under way?   I see it is called a “parking” diesel heater.  The price is definitely do able!

I wonder what "parking" means.  For boats that wouldn't otherwise have a heater, either because of $$$ or boat size/usage, it'd be nice to put one of these in.  If I build a Widebody, I definitely will...

There is a video on YouTube where some guy tests it.  I just can’t remember how loud.    I want to say it was 80 something

I suspect the main application is for heating the cab and sleeper on a Class 8 truck when "parked"...

Works just like webasto or espar. In fact i think it was copied from espar, almost identical. Used in the same ways. Haven't had any problems underway even in a steep lake Erie chop.

as i start to get furniture in order for the build I find my self hitting my head against the wall.  I stared at all the lovely images of alcohol stoves for sale for a year now.  Along with others fuel types too.  It wasn't until the past couple days I learned that no alcohol stove really exists new, for sale.  I did lose an action on Ebay for a new in the box origo 3000 which I really wanted.
  The Wallas is just Sooo expensive.  I have read so many stories about Scan Marine crappy service and great expense folks have had to shell out for these units.  Unfortunately there just inst much of a choice I guess.  On another note the porta potty I want is also unobtanium.

I ended y
up buying an Origo two burner.  I really wanted the diesel cooktop.  With the money I saved I can outfit the entire house.  So there is that.  Anyone interested the non pressurized alcohol stove should start looking around before you think you need it.  They are not so east to come by.  I bought a nice one on Ebay.  Be prepared to PAY!
