Finding Fridge/Freezer Gaskets for our Eleuthera 60

Does anyone have a trick to finding gaskets for fridges and freezers?
I'm getting the feeling that the fridge/freezer in our Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera 60 is a "one-off" build. I did reach out to Fountaine Pajot, which was really helpful.

Apparently, we have...

1 unit ASU 4901 Magnum with eutectic plate 15L
1 unit ASU 4903 Magnum Freezer with eutectic plate 15L

Google leads me to believe that Idel/Webasto is the manufacturer, but "magnum" seems to only be the inside of the fridge, not the housing (for which I need replacement gaskets).

Thoughts? Recommendations?

I asked exactly this question on a fridge technicien lately.

He directed me to a local rubber products manufacturer.
And indeed they fabricate magnetic fridge seals to the millimeter.

Look for a company selling rubber products and doing some rubber products customisation.
I had to give the dimensions W and H, measuring from the centre of the groove.
Of course you get the same results measuring from the inside to the outside of the groove on the other side of the door.

There are Companies that come around, and they have all the goods to replace the magnetic and regular fridge door seals in older fridges..

Maybe look in the Yellow Pages. They come around by appointment in a van, measure up, and make them on the spot.

Kind regards, Helia 44 now on a Saba 50...

Quick update, just in case someone else with an Eleuthera finds this thread one-day. I've contacted Kent-Marine, Indel Webasto Marine, Beard Marine, MultiTech, and Titan Marine Air, but none have been able to help so far. Everyone is asking for a model number and manufacturer, which doesn't seem to exist.

I also contacted rubber companies... no luck.

I did hear back from Fountaine Pajot and they provided me with the dimensions of the gasket... so maybe I'm making some progress.

What I was talking about in the Post above, was not marine: Try domestic fridge companies... The have vans with various sizes of the fridge seal material, and they come around and make it up on the spot...

I used to use them now and then for various rentals I had, with older fridges where the original fridge door seal was not available.. Try this domestic fridge angle..
