I have just looked at the Solgas website and the flameless ceramic hob looks good and only requires a 12V power supply.
The important feature is that it should have flame failure protection on all gas burners; and this is not apparent from the blurb, but is however quite likely. It would be best to ask the Boat Safety Office for a definitive answer before fitting one to your boat.
It is likely that although it works from a 12V supply, it might not like the 11V to 15V possible range of the boat supply and it would be as well to fit a DC to DC converter to supply a regulated 12V supply.
