Mine is higher than that so telling you what I have (Panasonic) isn't going to do you much good. An outside height of nine inches is going to be a very small microwave and I think you would be happier with a larger one even if you have to find another place to put it.
That said, the Internet
is your friend here. You will find a lot more models on the Internet
than in your local stores.
Although rare, if you can find one with a manual timer or electronic but no clock, you'll be better off. The microwave in my home won't even heat water
without knowing the time day, date and year. On a boat
you won't have constant power and this would be a very big hassle.
