We upgraded Zia’s refrigeration and installed a 12-volt dual Frigoboat system with keel coolers. It is another “set it and forget it” system that is penurious with power and nearly silent as well. We can serve ice in our drinks and keep the fish that we catch frozen rock solid.

Thanks tons Rob for going the extra mile, I can not tell you how pleasant it is dealing with your company. I have recommended and installed about 6 of these [Frigoboat] units in friend’s boats...all because of the product and of course your great service. Keep it up!

While we were on the hard in Astoria, Oregon we installed two independent Frigoboat keel-cooled systems - one for the fridge (7 cubic feet), one for the freezer (5 cubic feet.) Yes, 12 cubic feet in total. Both of our Frigoboat systems are the same size and use the same components except for the thermostats, which are different. They are "plug and play" and didn't require any additional Freon charging. The lines supplied were plenty long enough to reach from icebox to compressors. The compressors are really small and don't add hardly any heat to the lazarette.

I am amazed how well they keep food cold/frozen and how little power they use. Our boat has four 110 watt Kyocera solar panels. We are able to be completely off the grid for days and still make 4 large trays of cocktail ice daily and keep the freezer full, which makes provisioning meat, produce, and dairy less stressful between long legs of the journey.

I have a Frigoboat air cooled refrigeration system that cools a 9 cu ft box that holds a 1.5 cu ft freezer section. Love it.

about Vitrifrigo refrigeration
The time to replace my never cold fridge has come as expected. After reading numerous reviews will be going with the Vitrifrigo DP 2600 stainless. Was a choice to spend $1300 on a pos or spend the $1800 to get a great product.

I also installed the Vitrifrigo (undercounter refrigerator). Easily made it down through the cabin door and nice fit, with flange kit. Fridge is awesome; good quality fit and finish. Outside dimensions are smaller than original ref., but interior room is more. It is super quiet and has nice LED interior light.

about Solara solar panels
"Greetings from Tahiti. The solar panels are fabulous. They give us so much power"

"We're currently in Guadeloupe. Boat is doing well, I wish everything else was as maintenance free as our Solar panels."

about Solbian solar panels
There was other damage. The two remaining Aurinco solar panels died, bringing their failure rate to a perfect 9 for 9. The two Solbian panels provided enough charge with judicious use of sheet to tiller steering [to conserve power as vs using the “impressive Pelagic tiller pilot”].

I purchased a 100 watt Solbian flexible solar panel and voltage regular from your company at the Annapolis Sailboat show a few years ago. Worked like a charm and was extremely happy with the system. I sold my boat recently and bought another one so I want to install the same panel on the new boat.
