It depends on how you are using the boat. For liveaboard or long term cruising, I would recommend getting a 12 VDC powered system, rather than a engine-powered system, since it won't require running the engine when you're at a dock with shore-power. Also, upgrading the electrical system's regeneration capability is not a bad idea in any case.

How large a refrigerator are you looking for? The Engel/Norcold portable units are pretty good choices if you need something that isn't too large. They have units as large as 60 quarts IIRC.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
