Corporate History

The Lunenburg Foundry was founded in 1891 and produced marine equipment, including cast iron stoves, until the 1990’s. Navigator Stove Works acquired the rights to a select number of their stoves and has been building cast iron wood stoves since 1997. The stoves are small, designed to heat areas of 300 square feet or less. They were originally designed for use on boats but are also being used for applications on land where a larger stove is too big.

I am still waiting!! I paid my deposit April 2017. No stove. Website states they produce about 2 stoves per week. Using that as a guide, I should have had mine by November 2017. Here we are mid.January 2018 and I am still 28 stoves ahead of me! 😡

"Tiny Power Plant"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

This stove is awesome. It's tiny, for a wood stove, but is a powerful little blast furnace. I've had it in my "tiny home" for about five years and could not be happier. It's well made, attractive, and efficient. Without it, I don't think I'd make it through the winter. Thankfully, this hot little number has dutifully kept me warm for years. I call it my hot little robot. The cast iron construction is bullet-proof. This thing is TOUGH. I've never had any problems with it, never needed to replace or repair anything. I recommend them to everyone I know in the tiny home movement. Several friends have purchased one of their own and all have been satisfied. If mine ever needs replacing, I'll definitely get another one. But honestly, I can't foresee a situation where I would even need to, this thing will probably last my entire lifetime. Thank you Navigator for your powerful little Sardine!
