I use a Eberspacher heater on my MF695 which warms the air in the cabin which eventually comes up to the windscreen. It would be possible to put trunking up to the windscreen as it would get in the way of moving in the cabin as it cannot be hidden with the way the dashboard is.

 

The other option is to get a small demister and mount on the dashboard , but this has to be fixed as it can be thrown off with swell. I have tried this but these things do not seem to last very long.

I would not bother spending £8 on these. I have had one and they don’t work. Better off buying a couple of demisting sponges and a squeegee .

The Russians make a diesel heater about half the price of a eberspacher

 

or look for a second hand one , I got mine from Clive who used to run seastart for £500 a few years ago

I use mist x in my car, it works very well but does need reapplying every week or every other week depending how misty it gets. Not sure if salty air has any negative effect on it tho
