You may want to consider baseboard heaters. They're silent, cost effective and fit right in. I made this post when I installed them. Please check it out.

I live the heater I have. It warms up my 25' Landyacht very quickly and completely silently. Its a Sunbeam convection heater. I got it at Wally world for $45 two years ago. It is light and ez to move around, not bulky or in the way.

I agree with Jammer. The West Marine heater is the best electric heater I've had. I bought my first one years ago for a sailboat and have bought two for my airstream. I use one for winter low level heating (750 W) running full time and a newer one for camping.
after a year or so they build up a dirt layer on the blades of the fan and need cleaning. I believe all fans do this. I take it apart, wash off the blades, put a drop of oil on the bearings and put it back together. It runs quiet and smooth.

Good heater.

Vornado Heater

We have a Vornado portable heater. We have used the little box ceramic heaters for many years. They work, but are noisy and do not do a very good job of circulating the heat. The Vornado works very well, keeps the room evenly heated, and is quiet. Some people do not like them because they move more air and are not very warm right in front of the unit (because they move more air). We purchased the TVH 500 a couple of years ago and would not use anything else. It has a thermostat that seems to be quite accurate.
