There is probably NO CHANCE you will find anything to fit without some slight alteration to your top. If you wanted to go with a drop in, this is close and might cover. Those holes in back are the problem.

I would think that as long as you pick out a bigger sink, you could cut your top out and make it work.

The template that comes with the new sink will show you where to cut... until you lay it on there it's hard to say.

With a wet saw and maybe a grinder or cup wheel... maybe a diamond core bit for the corners... it should be no problem.

Not much counter left there in front... so you might want to fudge the new one back as far as you reasonably can.

Is this for a kitchen? I imagined it was a bathroom.

This sink has bowl size that is only 15 3/4" so I assume I dont need to cut anything...It should fit in the existing hole ...what do u think?

We cant measure it but you can. If you download the specifications file from that page it will show you what the cutout size is and what the flange will cover and what it won't.

That cut out looks like it was cut for a bar sink. The BIG Orange store has several examples of bar sinks.
