Marine Refrigerators 12 or 24 Volt DC Ideal Conversion for High Energy Efficiency

SunDanzer solar refrigerators and freezers weren't specifically designed for marine applications but they make an ideal conversion unit if you are looking to save precious cabin space and improve energy efficiency. SunDanzers typically use less than one-third the energy of comparably sized conventional marine refrigerators.

See the electrical specifications and dimensions here in a printer friendly window.

If you are fitting or refitting a sailboat the energy efficiency will be especially helpful with your smaller generator, wind generator if you have one, and smaller battery bank.  If you are the owner of a cruiser or motor yacht (aka stink pot? - sorry, I am a sailor) the benefits are the same but energy conservation may not be as important.

One of the great features of SunDanzers, whether you are sailing or motoring, is that these chest style refrigerators work well in low headroom quarters, and you don't have to worry about latching the safety catch as you would on an upright.  The cold air doesn't run out on your feet, either, another energy saving comfort.

SunDanzer direct current (DC) refrigerators are designed to operate on a range of voltages, either 12 or 24 volts, without any adjustment by the user other than changing a small protective fuse, 15 amps for 12 volt or 7.5 amps for 24 volt. 

The 24 volt refrigerators have a low voltage safety cut-out of 22.8 volts with automatic cut-in (restart) of 24.2 volts.  The 12 volt cut-out is 11.4, cut-in is 11.7.  The low voltage cut-out protects the compressor motor from damage and a  battery from excessive power drain.

SunDanzer also has a 115 VAC power supply option.

The refrigerators can also be operated from 115 or 230 volt alternating current (AC) by using a step down transformer that converts AC to DC of either 12 or 24 volts.


  • 12 or 24 VDC with low voltage disconnect for battery and compressor protection

  • Environmentally friendly CFC-free refrigerant (R-134a)

  • Rugged scratch resistant galvanized steel exterior

  • Easy to clean anodized aluminum interior

  • Automatic control with adjustable thermostat

  • One year factory warranty

Quite Quiet Operation - A Marine Luxury

One of the additional advantages of the super energy efficiency of SunDanzer refrigerators and freezers is their quiet operation.  In order to conserve energy, these units do not have internal or external fans that create the majority of the noise associated with conventional refrigerators.

You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant is pumped through the refrigerant coils.  When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped around and you will hear a faint whirring sound or pulsating  noise from the compressor.  A thermostat controls the compressor and you may hear a 'click' when the thermostat cuts in and out.

SunDanzer refrigerators and freezers are designed to provide years of efficient trouble-free operation.  The design is optimized for energy savings with an efficient DC compressor, thick insulation, and a chest style configuration.
