Re: Recommendations wanted for an electric tankless water heater

Very energy thirsty even at low flow rates, IMO useless.

For electric, better to go insulated tank if you want high temps, still there with the genset off.

Only direct fuel tankless is worth it, but propane is dangerous on a boat.

Diesel Webasto style is excellent, not "truly instant" but close, can also space heat via hydronic air exchangers aka radiators.
