Question Wanted: Recommendations for a new fridge for our CS30

We have a 1987 CS30, with a "unit" currently installed.
One of the previous owners replaced the factory fridge with apparatus
that was not familiar to the surveyor, and we can find no markings on it
to help.
That being said, it is more of a cooler, not a cold environment per say, and a block of ice or a bag of cubes melts within a couple of days.
It does run on shore power, and is connected to the main as it would be
under normal circumstances.
It is a drop in model, and the factory double door lids are still in use.

There is just really the 2 of us, but we like to keep lots of bevvies on board, and yes, that includes cold water, pop and juice, not just barley based beverages...

We are day/weekend sailors, but we'd like to keep some things on board
cold from weekend to weekend to avoid lugging a cooler back and forth
every time.
I don't keep any meat, cheese or milk products, only sealed unopened beverages at this point.
Budgeting about $500.00 to $800.00 including the install.

All suggestions are welcome...

We installed a Norcold conversion kit. I have a short article on my site that shows the unit, how I installed it, and my thoughts. The kit costs around $600 from West Marine. Cheaper elsewhere, but then you pay more for shipping.

My blog site is listed in my signature line.
