    I'm thinking about changing my outside deck refrigerator out for an icemaker on my 2006 320 Sundancer. Do you know what brand and model number would fit under the sink where the refrigerator is currently installed? I'd love to get the short height model (it has the compressor behind the ice box) Raritan in the space but I haven't checked the available depth yet in this location. It looks like the height and width would work on this model. Did SeaRay use a Raritan, U-line, or something else for this location? I tried a quick search and didn't find anything that would help me to answer this question.

    Thanks in advance for any help with this question

    I doubt you just be able to swap out a fridge for an ice maker without a fair amount of work.. I had my cockpit fridge removed and a new U-line ice maker installed. It involved about 6 hours of labor. The space was too small so a new fiberglass partitition between a locker and the appliance had to be fabricated, gel coat repaired, plumbing, etc. There is more to it than meets the eye.

    I don't think it's that big of a deal in this location since it was a factory option. There is already a 110 AC outlet and cold water supply at this location. I just haven't had a chance to pull the refrigerator out to measure the depth available. The shorter height model ice makers will fit with height and width; but they have the compressor behind the unit which adds to the depth required.

    Thanks

    I know that when the U-line was an option the hole was cut out smaller then the fridge, extensive glass/gel work will have to be done, but as far as the plumbing, just need a black T and the small clear h2o line for the ice maker. As far as the depth, there is more space under there then you think, since it lives in an inserted box on the deck, under the spoiler so to speak, so you get about another 6" to a foot to play with.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the reply.

    Do you happen to know what the model number is for the U-Line ice maker that was used?

    As far as the opening being too big, I should be able to make something up in white starboard as a trim ring to make the opening smaller and then mount the ice maker to it.

    It's a factory option on my boat as well but the appliances are different sizes. Tiara adds an up-charge for the ice maker of nearly $1,000. Not sure how they arrived at that number but they probably sell fewer ice makers than fridges so the standard wet bar they build needs to be modified to accept the U-Line.

    I looked at this 2004 with an Ice maker. The picture might help with your question.

    I have an 04 320 with the icemaker, next time I am at the boat I will try and get the model number for you. If I have the manual for the icemaker at my house I will get it for you quicker.
    As stated, there is an awful lot of room in that location and the swap will not be that big of a deal. Maybe an adapter plate to fit icemaker to the existing holes for the frig but I think it would be pretty simple.

    You would think that the starboard would be an easy out, but infact, the U-line icemaker is probably 2x's the weight of the fridge. The starboard would never hold up over wakes.
    Our alternative in-factory would be to place wood 2x's around the opening on the inside then glass/gunk, and gel.

    Your choice all the same :)

    Excellent point. The dealer had to re-build the floor of my interrior locker too because of the weight. I'd forgotten that aspect of the job. Nothing is ever as simple as it seems.

    trit21,

    Thanks for the reply. The model number would help me with this project.

    Everybody else,

    I also agree that I will most likely be putting some support under the unit to rest it solid on the floor to eliminate movement. I also will most likely have to stiffen the bulkhead where the unit fastens and use the starboard to hide what I'm doing to stiffen it up. Believe me, I know nothing is ever easy to do on a boat but with the right planning and patience most tasks can be accomplished. The more you rush and try to cut corners will always complicate the job.

    AAK,
    How did this turnout? Did you track down the model number? I am also considering this. Thanks!
