As a pinnacle symbol of luxury, no experience on board a superyacht is made whole without fine dining. With immediate proximity to the sea and expert chefs on board, guests aboard superyachts have access to some of the world’s best ingredients, prepared to the finest standard. Just as the age-old adage declares that ‘the kitchen is at the heart of the home’, the galley is central to a superyacht.Photo: Delightin DeeThe galley, an inherently technical space, should be outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment to complement the top-quality ingredients on board, but access to wonderful ingredients prepared by master chefs, proves futile if not stored properly.
With this level of attention to detail and the ultimate guest experience in mind, maritime refrigeration experts at Heinen & Hopman have developed both refrigerator and freezer cabinets to ensure top-of-the-line storage for those all-important ingredients. Whether you’re hopping between Mediterranean ports or embarking on a journey to remote corners of the world, star-worthy food should always be of access.

The technology has optimised air circulation, and therefore extends the shelf life of products. This ensures that food storage is reliable whether you are out at sea or in port.
Adjustable to your needs
Each aspect of the stainless steel refrigerator and freezer cabinets, including walls and floors, custom-built doors and configuration and the number of shelves can be customised to meet the needs of your superyacht. With a large interior volume of 550 litres and vertically adjustable shelves every 12.7 millimetres, storage requirements can always be fulfilled.Photo: Heinen & HopmanA sustainable option on board
The superyacht industry has become increasingly attuned to the movement towards sustainability, and Heinen & Hopman are no exception. With sustainability as a foundational element to the company’s philosophy, their refrigeration and freezer cabinets have been designed to reflect this priority. Design elements such as the use of extra-thick walls and PIR insulation serve to reduce heat, optimise the thermal performance of the cabinets and improve the overall efficiency of the system. Additionally, a non-flammable and low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant is used as both a safe and eco-friendly choice.
Though a refrigeration and freezer system may not be the first thing you notice on a superyacht, it certainly operates as an instrumental piece of the puzzle to ensure your superyacht is being used to its fullest potential by providing the highest level of fine dining for guests.
