What Fridge ?
I have a small American Vitrifigo C39 fridge onboard which was purchased by my boats previous owners in 2002.
It generally appears to have 'had it's day' and needs replacing.
I have just been quoted by their UK agents £399.00 + VAT (20% in UK) plus they want another £40 + VAT so I can switch between 12v and 230v totalling £526.00 + delivery.
Just how reliable are these American made Vitrifigo Marine fridges? Is it unreasonable after 9 years to have to replace it, as it is not used 24/7 ? they are not so common in the UK as like the Weaco fridges (which are also not cheap).
However before deciding and shopping around on line it will be interesting to hear from others who have experiance of the reliability of these fridges.
Thanks for your help
