These are images from the CabinPorn site of a restored sailboat in Bergen, Norway, originally built in 1907.  Holy mackerel, it has a woodburning stove!  And not much room in the head for shaving...

Lovely little boat. I didn't see it last I was in Bergen, but I was there for work Tongue

As for the wood stove... wood was a lot easier to get hold of and a lot cheaper than any alternatives - and you need heat when you're sailing the Norwegian Ocean in winter Biggrin

A wood burning stove in a wooden sailing vessel.  Hmmmmmm.............  They better have some really good fire extinguishers.

I think they're surrounded by fire extinguishing but I would think the point is to keep most of it outside the hull.

I think I would have to hang a mirror and shave in the galley.  I assume there is insulation between that stove and the hull.   But it would not take much heat to warm that small space.

I wonder how they keep it from rusting in that environment?

I would guess enamel for the gray bit, and "ovnsverte" (oven black - aka oven polish) for the black part Tongue
