Needed small heater, to fit in small compartment. Was really fast installation, I bought all additional parts like tank, chimney, others from SVB. Its quiet, low on petrol. Don't used it in cold conditions, but when is 10-16 degrees outside it is enough for 31 footer sailboat.
Yes, I would recommend this product

Excellent - works well. Installed in my Beneteau Antares 650 and warms the cabin nicely. Dave
La mise en place dans le bateau demande de la minutie
Hello everyone, Nothing to say about the SVB service, always on top ... On the product, I had a "WALLAS 1300" heater in the 90s which died of old age and which worked very well. That's why I ordered a new one. The latter is more compact which makes sense 30 years later. The chimney flue went from 3760 to 2845 therefore obliged to change the bridgehead. And be careful with old boats, check the quality of your electrical line because 2 volts less, the fan turns but the boiler does not turn on. Finally all this once solved the device blows hot air, very hot and you can lower the temperature by acting (anti-clockwise) on the blue resistance visible on the underside of the device and against it from the mouth air outlet (count 18 to 20 pump pulses per minute to have 22 to 23 in the boat). This is not in the doc ... Regards Michel
Excellent buy!!. I installed this unit on a 10 meter sailboat with a cabin smaller than usual at this length. I chose to put it in a bulkhead and the connection in gooseneck directed to a side of the ceiling. The deposit of paraffin just below hiding in a drum. The whole installation was very simple and I made it personally except the cover hole. The heating works perfectly and heats one cabin and two small cabinets in about 15 minutes. No annoying odors. Fan noise is tolerable but can be improved. Overall satisfied for the price it has.
Installed in a traditional sailboat (plan Cornu) of 10 m on the partition between the square and the bathroom. Tank of 10 l under a berth, fireplace on the roof of the roof with double stainless steel pipe about 50 cm long. The unit is extremely easy to use (no adjustment) and works perfectly, fast and efficient heating in the square, bathroom and cabin front, blower not too noisy.
I had bought the Wallas 1300 a year and a half ago and installed in my Oceanis 323, berth on the Mediterranean. Unfortunately, the function is absolutely unsatisfactory. Even after shorter periods, the device has considerable start-up difficulties, with mostly strong smoke at the beginning, and only after several on-off cycles it runs, or mostly not. Only after rinsing with isopropanol (as recommended in the operating instructions) does the heating start. The wick had to be replaced twice, the kit costs 50 euros every time. I use the best fuel available here in France, but I had the question as to whether it could be because of it. However, requests for my part concerning the fuel selection at SVB as well as directly to Wallas without success. If the device ran times, the heat was ok, however the blower is quite loud, to sleep in the immediate vicinity definitively too loud. For a price of about 1000 euros (with all parts) I expect 100% reliable operation, without constant elaborate cleaning and maintenance work. This is not given here. The device is saddened again, I should have bought something '' right '' from Webasto or Eberspächer.
