These are the instructions to which ADI refers https://www.butlertechnik.com/downloads/Webasto_Install_Instructions_Marine_heating_systems.pdf

The instructions only relate to the specified Webasto products and include this safety warning:
If you want to install a Webasto® heater system yourself: The installation assumes that you have sufficient technical and craft knowledge and skill. Unskilled installation can endanger life! Before first use, the heating system must be checked by an authorized Webasto® Partner!This is both for your safety and for the safety of third persons.

It seems they only suggest a condensation drain if the length of the exhaust exceeds 2 metres.

I’ve attached a photo of my own installation (an Eberspacher) and there is certainly no drain fitted to the exhaust (the white pipe) and it’s never caused any problem.

Thanks Pally it's very helpful to see other people's installations, just need to source some appropriate fuel pipe now, I believe it has a safety code on it.

Tragic, but a timely reminder that diesel fumes can kill - quickly.

Thanks for posting that link Pally. I note from reading the full report that the source of co was the silencer, which wasn't inteneded for marine use. Highly relevant to this thread.

Due to the nature of my job (until I retired), I have been banging on about the dangers of carbon monoxide for years.

Yes thanks for posting definitely important to double check everything and make sure exhaust fittings are sealed, i have had a carbon monoxide alarm fitted for 11 years and replaced last year, it occasionally goes of on windy days when the canopy is back due to exhaust fumes being blown in, but a rare occurrence.

Just want to add I wont be using the silencer as the exhaust run will be about 1.5 meters.

A friend of mine removed this heater from a boat on safety grounds. The owner had it positioned in the cockpit with the exhaust pointing at a vent in the hull, but not actually connected to a skin fitting. When the red outer case is removed, it reveals a plastic fuel tank sitting on top of the heater body and all the fuel piping connected in windscreen washer tubing. The really frightening thing is, these are sold like this online. The only modification the owner made was to screw bits of wood to the bottom, presumably to give it some sort of stability. According to the owner, it worked a treat!! I bet it did. Scared
