We are huge fans of Frigoboat. We have had the keel-cooled version for about 6 years now. It is virtually silent and the compressor takes very little space. We have 2 LARGE fridge boxes, one of which includes a small freezer. We insulated them heavily including 2 layers of reflectix. We draw a total of only about 30 amp-hours per day in 70-degree water. Their website gives good tables & formulas to estimate your usage.
They're not cheap, we paid about $1500 (?) with a boat show discount back then. But we were able to do the install ourselves, and its been very reliable since. Wait for opinions from some others, we've heard there were some problems with Frigoboat a few years ago, don't know if its been resolved yet.
