Whether you need a boat stove for a small sailboat, an ocean-going ship, or something in between, there’s sure to be a cookstove to fit your galley.
Propane vs Diesel Stoves
Diesel stoves are mostly used by northern-latitude cruisers and commercial boats. Diesel burns hot, is safer than some other types of fuel (like alcohol) and, thanks to its high heat content, is compact to store. Fuel for the stove can also be supplied by the vessel’s fuel tank. Propane stoves, also known as LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas), is now the most common type of fuel on most of the newer boats. Propane is stored as a liquid and burned as a gas, making it a compact choice.
When preparing food out of the galley, Dickinson has that covered, too, with marine-grade propane barbeques in three different sizes.
