We have 3 units now; 2 of which are going on 3 years old. We use 2 of the units to heat the salon during the winter in lieu of the onboard HVAC and the new unit supports heating of the enclosed cockpit to limit the accumulation of ice, snow and condensation. We have NEVER had a problem with any of these units. Plug them in; set the desired heat and fan; done! They are analog, so if power goes out on the dock, when it comes back on you are back in business. No digital resets required. A simple great product.

This product shorted and began melting the main control knob. Good thing I was in the boat at the time or it may have burned my boat down once the plastic lit on fire which it was about to, losing shape and turning black. Do not buy.

    Comments about West Marine Portable Cabin Heater:

    Perfect for our 28ft sailboat cabin. First impression when I started shopping for a heat was that I should be able to finder a nicer electric heater for less money. I could not. I finally bit the bullet and bought one. I glad that I did. Also this heater is made in Canada (not China) appears to be well constructed and I trusted it for use on my boat. Very quiet fan which is nice too.

      Comments about West Marine Portable Cabin Heater:

      Wife and I like to stay on our boat on the weekends, but winter was just too cold with blankets alone. We got this heater and have spent the last 3 weekends on the boat though it has been at or near freezing. The option to set it to turn on when it approaches freezing is very nice. The boat is not freezing when we get to it and takes little time to warm up. The outer layers of the unit does not seem to get hot at all even at full heat. Would recommend it.

                My West Marine Consultant encouraged this heater and he was spot on. It's a great little heater I use in one of my staterooms to keep the room warm. Does a great job.

                  Definitely one of my favorite of the West Marine products! I use two of these during the winter and they are powerful enough to keep the cabin of a 37' Trawler nice and toasty warm all winter. I appreciate its low-profile design as I don't have to worry about it tipping over!

                      Comments about West Marine Portable Cabin Heater:

                      I've had two of these for a few years. Bought them to keep the cabin from freezing when the boat isn't winterized. Found myself using them instead of the marine AC/Heat units. The freeze mode is great for keep the boat above freezing but then crank them up and they keep the boat comfortable when your there. They also do a great job of keeping the humidity down. Just purchased a third one as our new boat is larger. I run mine all winter (even when the boat is winterized) just too keep the boat dry and above freezing. The power usage isn't too bad either.
