Yep, everything in a boat is a compromise. The galley's up in not too large cats I have seen (limited number though) just don't have the storage necessary. I liked my Lagoon galley down it was huge.
I certainly wouldn't want to have to go to the forepeak for the pantry!
Pic showing just the inside half of the galley... The white area above the counter are cupboards. Stove and fridge across the aisle. Above the cupboards you can view into the salon from the galley. or from the step by the sink to the right.

Re: Up or Down Galley

Galley up is great for a few weeks charter. Over the long term in a extending cruising environment, galley down wins out.

Antares galley is integral to salon and has the benefit of being lower for less movement in a seaway while being part of the social flow.

Re: Up or Down Galley

To me galley up doesn't make sense until you get into a large beamy cat. Here's a couple of examples of galleys on 36' cats. One galley up the other down.

Re: Up or Down Galley

The Mahe galley up is great and there is enough storage around it.

Re: Up or Down Galley

Would never get the admiral to have galley down. I agree with her.

Re: Up or Down Galley

Not sure how much space you need.


We managed pretty well.


The saloon table is also close by.

The connection to the cockpit and helm is really the attraction of galley up.

Re: Up or Down Galley

We did, at one stage I admit think about putting a drop down into the stairwell to add some bench space but in the end decided it was a lot of trouble for little gain.


I seem to remember someone did add benchspace but I can 't remember how or who.

Re: Up or Down Galley

I wouldn't have a sailboat (or a wife) if it wasn't for galley up!

For those who claim galley up can't be done in a small cat, I have to disagree. It fits us quite well for the coastal cruising we do.
