All fridge compressors vibrate to a certain extent. The trick is to isolate the fridge as much as possible so that is does not pass this on to the structure of the boat. Free-standing fridges usually have no problems but I see that yours is fixed on three sides to the surrounding cabinets.
You might try putting a resilient material like foam draught strip on the mounting flanges between the fridge and the cabinets. Make sure you don't tighten the screws to their fullest extent so as not to flatten the strip. You should also ensure that the fridge is standing equally on its feet before your do this.
If the problem persists, check with the supplier.
