The Discovery 32 is most likely pretty much a 'stick built' boat (ie not many liners, if any). So you are probably free to do whatever you like as long as you avoid disturbing structural stuff.

A friend recently installed an Engle fridge drawer.. sounds like what RU is mentioning above.. makes sense, you still have the cold conserving top load, and good containment when heeled and it frees up precious counter space if there's room for it somewhere.

You galley looks a little tight, maybe the nav table area needs an upgrade/repurpose while you're at it.

A galley redesign could be fairly simple. ........

However, I don't see much a way to do that except eliminate the quarter berth. You probably have thought of that?
An Engel in a drawer oriented to slide aft and under the cockpit might work there.. You would lose the quarterberth but could retain a good sized seat; or sacrifice the berth, mount the engel (again in a drawer) athwartship and have a ton of extra counterspace/standup nav table and possibly more cabinetry and storage.

Accessing the newly created 'cockpit storage' might be trickier...

Where is your fridge now? With that linear galley (not at all like the drawings on sailboatdata - but then some of these hulls were sold as kits) an engle in a drawer between sink and galley stove should work a treat.

Alternatively maybe raise the stbd quarter a few inches and maybe a decent icebox/fridge could be fitted under the forward section.
