This refrigerator is a really great option if you want a large refrigerator and freezer that squeezes itself into a very small footprint (only 16.4 inches wide and 17.4″ deep). They can accomplish this by making the compressor external to the unit that is “pre-charged” with couplings, allowing it to be remotely mounted and then connected to the unit during installation.
The refrigerator ships with the external compressor connected to the refrigerator with copper coolant lines that are 1.5 meters long (4.9 feet). So, you can locate the compressor up to that distance away from the refrigerator. Because the copper coolant lines cannot be disconnected from the refrigerator itself, if you are installing into an existing cabinet/frame, you will need to cut an opening/notch in the frame large enough for the compressor unit to pass through. The compressor unit is approximately 6.5″ x 6.5″ x 13″.
The top area is accessed from a door that contains the primary refrigerator area and a separate freezer compartment. The bottom is a drawer-style refrigerator area that uses stainless steel hinge rails for sturdiness and fluidity. Includes a Night mode feature with low noise level and reduced power consumption.
Unit can be powered from either 12 volt DC or 120 volt AC! (AC converter included).
This refrigerator ships with the doors hinged on the right side but can be swapped so that it hinges from the left side. Details on this are included in the manual.
The front panels can be easily customized with other materials that are the same thickness. You can see an example of this in the image to the left that has panels made from laminate matching the cabinets.

We Protect Your Shipment
Unlike most retailers, we take great care to protect your refrigerator in transit. Each shipment is wrapped in heavy-duty foam insulation and carefully strapped to a pallet (example photo). Prior to launching our store, we've received many damaged refrigerators for own personal van builds which is frustrating and time consuming - particularly with the very limited supply of marine refrigerators these days. So, we take the extra effort to make sure your refrigerator arrives in pristine condition!
Note, the video shows this model with the black color panels. The refrigerator is available in both black and light grey finishes.
