Why adding your vessel details is important?

Giving us your boat details helps us to check that what you have specified is correct and we can also check against previous systems we have specified for similar designs or models of boat.

The voltage option should be the power that you will be primarily running the fridge or freezer from and this is important as it will affect the options of compressors that the system offers.

Which area you will be cruising in?

This helps us understand the sort of refrigeration you will need.

For boats cruising in hot climates like the Med or the Tropics we recommend you select water cooling which is the most efficient system possible because water dissipates heat far better than air (some 20x more effective) so will dramatically reduce your power consumption.

Boats cruising in Northern European waters will normally have lower ambient temperatures so air condensing sets are more than adequate, although water cooling will still be more efficient it is less critical.

Average 12 volt fridge power consumption

If you are starting in Northern waters and heading South then select Med

Which fridge or freezer system should you select?

Select Separate fridge or freezer (12 or 24 volt DC) for standard 12 volt or 24 volt DC systems to convert an insulated box to a fridge or freezer.

Select Freezer with spillover fridge (12 or 24 volt DC) if you are looking to create a top opening fridge freezer with two adjacent/joined boxes or one box with a divider.  Note: that if the volume of your combined fridge and freezer is too large for a spillover system you will need to produce two separate systems one for the fridge and one for the freezer.

Select Large capacity fridge or freezer (240V systems) for refrigerant systems to update an existing built in fridge or freezer.  Note that these are designed to refurbish or upgrade large fridges or freezers to run 240V  AC only – NOT DC

Have you thought about drawer fridges?

Take a look at the Vitrifrigo D20 and D30 drawer fridges. These are packed with features including the ability to run as freezers. For more information email us at [email protected] or call: 02392 453430
