The Galley

Cooking is something I am planning on doing much more of when we live aboard. At present I don’t seem to have enough hours in the day to be able to spend time preparing wonderful meals at home. I am looking forward to having much more time on my hands to be able to bake and make fabulous meals for us and guests! Therefore with this in mind there will be a few things that I will be looking for in the galley of the new yacht:

  • Storage for – knives & forks, plates, wine glasses, pots & pans etc
  • Storage for food
  • Refrigerator and freezer – accessibility and size and how it is run – off battery power or motor
  • Oven & cooktop – how big
  • Gas warning alarm
  • Gas bottle storage – and is there room for a spare?
  • Sink size
  • Sea cocks
  • Fresh water and pumps
  • Sea water?
  • Ventilation
  • Area for rubbish bin

By the way – if you are looking for literally hundreds of wonderful boat galley ideas and tips – check out Carolyn Shearlock has a wonderful website, newsletter and Facebook page with a wealth of information in there.

Just look at all the fabulous storage space in the Sun Odyssey! I would have a field day putting all my sistema containers in here!!
