Refridgerator and Boiler

Refridgerator and boiler, two of those things that you need to have if you want your stay onbord to be somewhat comfortable.


We have two refridgerators onbord one for everyday use with a box of about 90 liters and a portable one that we can turn on when we have guests and want to cool a lot of beer at the same time without ruin the groceries you have in the other box.

For the main box we have a Isotherm ASU 3251 SP watercooled system with a fanless compressor. The watercooling part really save a lot of amps and it is super quiet.

Verdict: 9 out of 10

The portable one is a Isotherm TB31 that can run on 12 volt or 230 volt. It is not that big, but it is rather effective for beeing an aircooled unit. It is really sturdy with good handles for carrying

Verdict: 9 out of 10


The old boiler was placed on the ceiling of the engine room, when we swapped engine we decided to move it out of the engine room and put it under in the salon instead under one of the bunks. The main reason for that was that since the boiler mounted on the ceiling was much higher then the engine every time you strated the engine and the cooling fluid started to pump the liquid level in the engine was lowered. The reason for that was that there was no expansion tray for the engine liquid, when we swapped the engine we found that out and though of putting an expansion tray but Volvo Penta asked 700 Eur for some platic parts and a feet of hose. Was much cheaper to get a new boiler and put it under the bunk instead.

We have a Isotemp 25 slim, rather long but slim in diameter, which makes it fit great under the bunk. Handles 25 liter of hot water. Mainly heated through the engine but can also run on 230V.

Verdict: 9 out of 10
