That is the latest new autopilot system. It will not only steer, but it will start the engine, decide on a destination based on weather and tides, plot the course, adjust speed, take videos of the journey and post about the trip on Trawler Forum.

Could be Auscan, but more likely it`s a self composting toilet/bidet for long range single handing Captains.
Remember that recent incident of a Captain going below, his boat on autopilot course crossing a ferry route? Would never happen with one of these.

Possibly a refrigerator or icemaker?

You're right. She's the ZB15 icemaker.

Looks like a countertop icemaker to me.
