Go on caravan and RV websites. They have 12V kettles. Also remember that water takes a lot of energy to heat so boil exactly what you need and no more. I suggest filling your cups/mugs to near the brim with water and then pouring them into the empty kettle. That will greatly reduce the "boil time" if the 12V kettles are slow.

But being a sailor makes you a boatwright, sailmaker, naval architect.....

Spent last September in Barcelona helping my 21 yr old, language teacher son, who is blind, learn the city and his travel routes.
Being Bermudians,(British subjects, and all that, you know ), we like our tea.
Visited 1/2dozen stores, including Cortes d' englis (sp) asking for an electric tea kettle. Blasphemy to the coffee drinking Catalunyans, whose residential water is provided by on-demand gas fired heaters.
When buying a Symcard in the phone store, a salesman overheard us discussing this, and told us to ask for an electric kitchen heater.
Problem solved muy bien.
