The water seems to settle in the area shaped for bottles underneath the freezer plate.  It looks like the moulding could accept a drain but then you need to work out where to take the drain to.

I had a drain on my last boat and it was a pain! Would drain into the bilges and swish around all the limber holes. I was relived to see there was no drain on my 418 and all the condensate is held within the bottom of the fridge where it can easily be dealt with. Just a different way of looking at it ;)
