Refrigerator off main breaker?

I am just installing a new fridge system. The old one is tied to the main breaker but I am considering going direct from the battery through its own breaker so we could leave it on with the rest of the boat off. Is this OK?

It is for long term cruising and we have a very well insulated (4 1/2"+) refrigerator and 400w of solar.

Advice appreciated as always.
