I know of one motorboat liveaboard, who use one located on their sundeck. The oven is not thermostatically controlled and it's pretty light weight and not insulated very well.

I being very frugal, replaced my 42 year old RV stove in my sailboat with a new atwood wedgewood RV stove. Pretty much identical to this one. RV Atwood 3 Burner Stove w Oven Black Wedgewood Vision 31 Special Sale | eBay

It cooks like a home stove. That is the burners heat foods as fast as a land stove. The oven has all the safeties and is thermostaticelly controlled. I'm am very pleased with it. I used the old gymbal mounts which worked out well. I added a latch to the back to lock it in place. The door and oven walls do not get hot when the oven is on.

The big difference between the Atwood stove and a marine stove is the top burners are no auto cutoff on flame failure and of course it's not stainless steel. But my old stove lasted 42 years. If the new one lasts half that long, I'll be happy.

There are Force 10 flame failure burners for about $100 ish each, that might be able to retofit with a lot of work. Myself, I don't worry about it. I don't leave the stove top unattended when cooking. Plus I have a propane sniffer that will shut the gas off on leak.

Do you really need an oven? If so, SC has the inexpensive way to go.. (Assuming you're plumbed for propane). Yup, it's not ABYC certified and stuff, but you can decide if it's gonna blow up the boat or not. (Get a propane detector fosure)

OTOH, I really like my alcohol Origo. Simple as simple can be and safe. Mine is only the top burners, no idea on if the alcohol oven works.
