    the short answer is yes....I have read several post where this has been done....all you need is to find a frig that fits in the space properly...there is a 110VAC outlet behind the freezer that can be used to power the new fridge....there may be a 12VDC power cable also behind the freezer although it was not used....most boats this size had either a freezer or a frig as options....the frig was dual power unit that could be powered from both 12VDC and 110VAC thus both power supplies were run to the cockpit galley....the freezer could only run on 110VAC so it was never connected to the 12VDC power supply....at least this is how I found things on my 340 which I assume is similar to your 330.....so if you have both power supplies you can install a dual power frig so it will stay running on the batteries when not connected to shore power or genny power as long as you have the breakers on in the main power control box........

    good luck....

    Like Cliff said, yes but. You will most likely have to widen the cut out. You should have the depth no problem under the seat. I never replaced my freezer but when I did pull it out noticed that I did not have a 12V DC line there only AC so that might mean you have to run a DC line up from the ER. You can follow the cold water line down from the sink for ideas on placement.

    Something like the Norcold NR751 should fit in there

    • Dimensions (Cut-Out): 20.5" H x 18.5" W x 21.0" D
    Most of the models have the cut out dimensions on line to reference. A Zip saw and steady hand and lots of tape is all it takes.
