Good stove in disguise
Despite phoning GR8 fires as I had read a previous review stating they received an identical Villager Athlone 1 and being reassured that the stove would be branded as GBS Mariner I received a Villager Athlone 1.
My concern was simply that the only efficiency rating I could find online for the stove I actually received was significantly lower than the quoted 84% for this stove.
I've since learnt that efficiency testing has little correlation to real world performance so decided to keep the stove and I'm happy with it; although I'm still unimpressed with the incorrect answer to my query and wonder whether this was due to a lack of knowledge or a decision to simply fob me off and give the answer I wanted in the hope that once the stove arrived I would keep it as I have done.
The stove is used in our large bell tent and connected to 3m of adapted single wall 4" stove pipe which is not a suitable way to connect any stove for permanent installation and I wouldn't leave it overnight and have several CO alarms.
Despite this and the resultant lower amount of draw from the flue with a little knowledge it performs very well.
Once fully up to temperature burning quality wood I can close the air intake nearly all the way, and the stove burns slowly and cleanly with no visible smoke out of the top of our flue- and when dismantling it several days later for storage even the top hat had no soot whatsoever - a vast improvement over our previous 'camping' stove.
The Air Wash is effective with only a tiny amount of hazing occurring towards the bottom of the window when run low over a long period.
I would draw potential purchasers attention to the Hamlet Hardy 4 stove which looks almost identical but has an external riddle connection and I believe a more advanced secondary burn system (which I'm still not sure as to whether the GBS Mariner 4 actually had). This may be worth the extra money for those looking for a stove for permanent installation in a home or boat, and frankly I find the lack of reliable information available about the minor differences in these stoves and the 'rebadged' versions of them very frustrating as a buyer who likes to do prior research.
In summary, as long as you know what you are getting it's a very good, small stove for a niche market - those that need a small stove with good output.
It doesn't put out as much heat as our 5kw stove at home but this is more likely to be a function of the reduced draw from our short and too narrow for building regs flue. I suspect connected to a 6" twin wall flue or flue liner it would output as much heat as any small stove, although you do need to be mindful of the need to use shorter log lengths than on other stoves.
Finally although delivery was without a hitch the phone call from the courier to arrange a suitable day which I had requested was more like a phone call to inform me of the morning which they would very much like to deliver and persuade me to find a way to accommodate them.
I appreciate this was down to the local freight company charged with delivery in my area and I'm sure had I stood my ground they would have rearranged.

Hard to fault
I'm very happy with the quality of my little stove and with the service from gr8 fires.
It is ideal for my little fireplace where it will be used as a focus and an occasional room heater in a centrally heated house.
It burns very hot, emits a huge amount of heat and my only criticism to date would be the glass blackening as a wood fire dies overnight. I'm not sure whether any stove can prevent this happening?
Gr8 fires price seems a bargain which trounces any competition and a free heat resisting glove and free flue pipe made the deal amazing.

A brilliant fire!
Because of the small cavity, we were limited in choice of fire. When l saw the photo of the fire, l thought it looked 'a bit cheap and flimsy ' and wouldn't ' pack a punch' ; however after reading the great reviews, thought that l would order one. And boy l'm so glad l did!! It's a super little fire, a modern but classical design AND it does 'pack a punch!' Our cats love it too!
Thank you GR8 fires for super quick free delivery.

This is a great little fire, in conjunction with an eco fan it heats the whole length of our narrowboat very efficiently. It arrived when they said it would but, confusingly, was labelled on the box as an 'Athlone Villager' not the 'GBS Mariner' we ordered. On checking on-line we found that the two stoves were identical anyway, so no problem although we'd have been grateful for some form of reassurance with the delivery that this was the case.

In general: good product, good price and prompt delivery.

I purchased this burner for my 20ft caravan and I cant rate it enough. Its very small and compact and not so heavy. The draft control is the best I have ever had and I've had a few stoves in my life time. And the best thing about it is its ability to stay in for hours. It lasts all night on 3 dry sycamore logs. It came well packaged and perfectly on time. It heats the caravan up in minutes after being lit. Have not yet tried it on smokeless fuel as I have a good log supply but I'm sure it will live up to expectations.

Bought one of these last year. What a fantastic little stove, heats most of downstairs and genuinely cut our heating bill by about £150 last winter compared to the previous... Cleans up beautifully and looks like new 1 year on even with quite heavy use. Very easy to control the heat output with the two vents, highly recommended.

A crackin' little stove!
We've had this little stove installed on our narrowboat for a week now and it has really surpassed our expectations. We needed a controllable stove which we could keep burning overnight on a gentle heat. Reading the other reviews we worried it might be too hot for our small space, however it actually does the job fantastically! Fill it up, shut the controls down and it'll burn gently for over 10 hours! Now we wake up every morning to a toasty warm boat! Judging by the fine powdery ash that is left behind it uses fuel really efficiently - other stoves we've had have produced lumpy, half burned grit by comparison. It's a perfect compact size for a narrowboat and the value for money and service we received from Gr8 Fires was excellent too!

Stunning Stove
We have a narrow hearth and the Mariner 4 has proved itself perfect in every way! With such a reasonable price, doubts about the quality nagged initially, but the instant I was told our free delivery would be made within a couple of days, I knew we had gone to a fantastic supplier. Our driver was patience-personified, returning to our house after we were out on his first attempt.
And the best things certainly come in small packages- together with being absolutely gorgeous, this tiny stove chucks out the heat and burns very efficiently too. The heat-proof glove supplied free with it is an essential piece of kit- why don't all stoves come with this??
All-round brilliant service and a stunning stove.

Great Narrowboat Stove
This stove arrived in perfect condition on an pallet, very quickly. The quality of welds is excellent. The Mariner 4 is the same as a Villager Athlone 1 and others. Now I realise the associated makes that are simillar/same it shows what good value this stove is compared to the usual favourites for Narrowboats. The flues supplied are good in fit and finish too. Fitted and running in under 3 hours ( including taking out the old stove and laying a new hearth of Alloy 5 bar plate).
There was a good deal of volatiles driven off as the paint cured, setting off the smoke alarm!
Once settled in the consumption of anthracite was a stove full lasting 15 hours !!!!! WOW !
Burns dry Oak logs very efficiently.
This stove is very controllable and really blasts out the heat at full chat, more than enough for our 45ft Tug.
Airwash for the door glass is very good.
Free glove is lovely.
Replaceable hearth bars are trick design. Vermiculite fire bricks make it light to lift into place.

Only criticism is the deflector plate would vibrate out of place with big engine running in a narrowboat, I cured this before fitting to the boat with a bolt as a stay at the front of the plate to the front of the stove above the door.

I wish we had a bigger boat so we could fit one at each end, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
