Typical Specification of Galley Fridge Freezers
In response to recent demand Penguin Refrigeration have developed a new range of galley fridge freezers specifically designed for large yachts and superyachts. Space is a premium on any yacht and in Penguin’s experience the volume of fridge and freezer space in most Superyachts is too small to properly cater for guests and crew. In many instances the galley fridge freezers supplied will be large domestic units such as Miele, Subzero or Whirlpool and while these units work well in a domestic kitchen environment they are severely tested when put into sea or ocean going yacht.
The combination of glass and perspex interior fittings and accessories found in standard domestic fridges and freezers are simply not up to the rigors of life at sea. Added to this the doors do not have positive latches, relying solely on the magnetic door seal to keep the door closed when underway. A lack of fiddle upstands on the shelves also make these standard fridges and freezers difficult or even dangerous to access when underway. Above all, the condensers supplied on this type of domestic fridge freezer are designed to be fitted in well ventilated kitchens not the confined space of a yachts hot and humid galley.
An alternative solution favoured in many galleys of larger Superyachts and Megayachts is to fit commercial fridges and freezers built by companies like Foster and Williams. While these commercail galley fridge freezers are designed to work in tougher commercial environments they are still not optimised for a yachts galley – no fiddles or upstands on the shelves, or locking catches on the doors. More importantly valuable space and refrigeration capacity is lost due to the large feet or castors and condensing units fitted top and bottom of the unit.
