A "gas fitter" specifically in the US is a plumber who is licensed to do gas connections. When you ask for a "gas fitter" you trigger a legal situation that no marine electrician or boatwright will want to touch.
It sounds like you may not need any gas connections touched. A good marine electrician should be able to diagnose your sniffer and control panel and replace anything that needs it without touching any gas connections. The only thing in that system that requires a gas connection is the solenoid at the LPG bottle. These do fail due to corrosion.
FWIW, the separate sniffer which is often located near the sole underneath the stove probably fails even more often and is very easy to replace.
