Dometic Portable Electric Fridge/Freezer


This was the solution to our not so effecient sailboat refrigerator and freezer.  We can use this portable cooler as either a fridge or a freezer and it holds temperature like a champ (even in the hot humid summer temps). This little guy comes in several different sizes but the CFX 50 was the perfect fit under our cockpit table.

A few of our fave features: 

  • Great space – Holds 72 12-oz. cans – 50L/53 qt./1.8 cu. ft
  • Can set temperature anywhere from -8F to +50F (-22C to +10C)
  • Runs on 120-volt AC, 12-volt DC or 24-volt DC power
  • Battery Run Down Protection
  • Digital controls and strong latches, hinges and drop-down handles

We also have the insulated protective cover:

    Hi guys! We love watching you. We were wondering if you switched out your Dometic for a Whynter. If so,we would love to hear your thoughts before we buy ours for our cruiser.
