Cockpit fridge on Sunseeker Portofino ’42
Stainless steel wet bar fridge for Sunseeker refit
Custom Yacht Works recently completed a full renovation of late ‘90s Sunseeker Portofino 42 bound for Palma Mallorca. The boat had a full refit and part of the brief was to update and improve the aft deck to add a wetbar area to entertain guests and friends. More refrigeration was central to the owner’s requirements and the team at Custom Yacht Works felt the Frigoboat MS80 stainless steel fridge was ideal for the functionality they were looking for within the space available.
The brushed stainless door matches in beautifully with Custom Yacht Work’s white units with their silver grey upholstered cushions. The beauty of the MS80 cockpit fridge is that it is stainless steel inside and out with excellent seals and positive locking slam latch handle. Internally it is an ideal drinks fridge with the two stainless grill shelves supplied as standard with the option of wine shelves if preferred.
Installation was straight forward, using the stainless mounting flange to secure the fridge in place. The remote compressor was mounted behind the cabinet with good ventilation provided from below and the warm air exhausting from a discrete grill higher up at the back of the unit.
The fridge runs from a 12V supply (15A fuse) with a run current of 2.4A. Once at temperature the average consumption is approx 1 A/h in 25⁰C ambient. For full details see the installation guide on the product page MS80 stainless steel fridge 1G52156-1G52161.
With the refit complete (fridges all commissioned and chilling nicely) the owner is now looking forward to putting the wet bar to good use this coming summer in Mallorca.
