Refrigeration specialist expands award-winning CRX range of versatile solutions for boat owners

Marine refrigeration specialist Dometic is introducing the convenient and versatile CoolMatic CRX65D compressor drawer fridge with removable freezer.

Providing boat owners with a practical three-in-one cabinet solution, Dometic’s new 57-litre capacity CRX65D is the first marine drawer fridge with freezer compartment which can be easily transformed into a larger capacity fridge-only or freezer-only unit.

The elegant drawer fridge contains two removable basket compartments so users can organise their provisions in accessible, slide-out rows. The 7-litre freezer section can be removed easily to adapt the unit as required, for storing fresh food and also deep freezing produce in temperatures as low as 17°F (-8°C).

The CRX65D features a flush-mount electronic thermostat control panel with 5 temperature setting points, located on the interior side wall where users can easily reach it to make precise soft-touch adjustments. An infrared sensor triggers a bright LED-light system to illuminate the interior.

Ensuring efficient performance, reduced power consumption and quiet operation, the DC-powered fridge (12/24V) uses an advanced, powerful electronic three-speed variable compressor which adjusts automatically to achieve the required cooling capacity. The fan is driven by the ambient temperature to minimise the noise. The fridge is also suitable for solar operation.

Julien Le Feuvre, Head of Marine OEM - EMEA, Dometic, said: “Our DAME Award winning CRX range of refrigerators featuring our breakthrough patented removable freezer concept is providing boat owners with a truly unique unit which they can adapt to suit their specific needs, granting them new versatility in keeping their food and drinks fresh. We are now delighted to expand the range and introduce the CoolMatic CRX65D for those people who prefer the option of a drawer fridge with slide-out access to their refreshments which they can organise in secure, easy to reach rows.

“The CRX range is a stylish addition to your galley and easy to install, with exceptional interior illumination, and features the latest technology to ensure quiet and economic operation, precise temperature control and durability.”

The CRX65D unit has a temperature range of 0 to 12°C for the fridge compartment and -6 to -12°C for the freezer compartment. It has a power consumption at 5°C of 16 watts (1.3 amps at 12V) at an ambient temperature of 25°C, or 28 watts (2.3 amps at 12V) at an ambient temperature of 32°C.

Saving vital space on smaller boats, a special cut-out design on the back of the fridge allows the unit to be fitted against the vessel’s hull.

The sleek Dometic CRX65D fridge is available in silver grey, with a stainless steel version also available.
