We faced the same thought process you are going through. The first thing we could not find a unit that fit in the same opening without serious modifications to the cabinetry. We had the freezer box removed and replaced it with a large cooling pale that fits on the back wall and is curved to fit on one side. This has proved quite satisfactory and is double in size to the freezer box. We can send a picture of the modification if required.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Front opening refridgerator
I have two questions:
- I like to remove the front opening refrigerator on our SM#259 from 1999 to clean out behind it and clean around the compressor, but I can't find whats securing it, doe's anyone know how to pull it out?
- I think of changing the compressor to a water cooled unit and also the evaporator to save energy and reduce the sound from the fan, does it make sense to do that? I hesitate to buy the new units with drawer as they are very expensive.
