The Dickinson Newport Solid Fuel is hard to beat as a heater - it is efficient and mounts off the floor, out of the way - but it is not a stove. If you are willing to order from Europe or Canada, there are a number of stove suppliers for small cabins located there. Honestly, those are even dwindling as we send a number of Newport Diesel Heaters to Norway, Canada and Sweden every year. Pound for pound, diesel fuel is hard to beat and easy to use.
Would the BTU output be sufficient to heat a 36 foot sailboat? What is the fuel consumption rate approximately when using charcoal briquettes? Does the unit need a heat shield if mounted directly to a wood bulkhead? Thanks.

Depending on the climate, your boat design, insulation and the temperature difference between the inside and the outside, this stove should work for you.
I would need a lot more information to speculate on fuel usage.
