Engel has made significant improvements to its DeepBlue line of marine coolers, including the new 25- and 240-quart models, making them stronger, colder and more versatile.
Starting at the top, the lid design has been improved by adding integrated, structural I-beams to increase overall strength while eliminating the possibility of warping in extreme conditions. The added strength lets even heavy anglers use the cooler as a raised casting platform, step stool or seat. Engel’s new lid design also features a flat, even exterior surface, making it easier to affix popular padded, non-skid surfaces, such as SeaDek.
Inside, a new optional divider panel slides into channels molded into the interior surface that allows for easy separation of refrigerated items. The drain plug design features more insulating plastic, together with an attachment hole that makes it easy to secure the plug to the chest. The drain plug hole is recessed with an integral gasket ridge, allowing for an improved plug seal while reducing exterior protrusion.
The coolers also feature new multiple tie-down attachment points that allow the cooler to be secured to the deck with stainless-steel turnbuckles, as well as with traditional corner chock systems. The new design also allows for the use of wider webbing tie-downs or a crimped cable to secure the DeepBlue cooler on a vessel or inside a truck bed.
DeepBlue coolers come in 25-, 35-, 65-, 80-, 123- and 240-quart models.
