    Default Origo Spirit Stoves

    They appear to be discontinued? Does anyone know why? And whether there are any manufacturers still doing decent marine spirit stoves? Can't see any anywhere!

    Yep - every single item there is listed as "discontinued"!

    I have found them still for sale in Sweden - just wondered why all UK sources have stopped importing them??

    I got this reply from Dometic in June:

    Dear Sir,

    Iím sorry but due to very low sales production has stopped.

    We stopped making this range over a year ago.

    You might be lucky to find some online dealers.

    Regards

    It’s a real shame that these have been discontinued, I have relied on these stoves on all my boats over the last 40 years.
    Fortunately the one I have now is only a year old so has plenty of life in it, and when I heard that they were to be discontinued I bought a few spare parts just in case.
    Domestic issue large company and I can see a niche product like this not fitting their overall business, perhaps a small engineering company might talk to them about taking over the production?

    I am sorry to hear they have been discontinued but with people wanting all the comforts of home on their yachts it was inevitable sales would fall to the point where it became unprofitable to continue making them.

    Mine is about 4 years old so I hope it will last for many more years. They are pretty basic so repairing them ought not to be too difficult.

    We have used the Origo successfully over the last 15 years and are sorry to see that it is no longer being sold. However, following an article in Yachting World we recently bought a portable electric hob eg

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Duronic-Tab...02662232&psc=1

    This has been very successful on our last two outings where shore power was available and is obviously cleaner than any fossil fuel burner. (No need to open the front hatch).

    Sad news indeed. Mine is about 8 years old. Hope it keeps going for another decade or so. Still a few parts on Ebay but at rather inflated prices.
