Show Us Your Galley

I'd like to see pictures of your galleys.
I'm getting ready to build my upper cabinets and am looking for some ideas.
Thanks

This works well for us at sea.

Making tall cupboards with custom heights to fit storage needs in both galley and adjoining salon takes a bit of mocking up but is worth it

No there is a Rockwool insulated space between shell and stainless heat shield.

Also vent plumbing from holding tank to side hull is installed behind there.

One advice if doing something similar is to make that section easily removable for inspection and to give easy wiring/plumbing runs if you decide to install something new.

Having access to previously hidden areas has been a key in my rebuild plans...some easier to achieve then others.

I’ve got this row of bolts/nuts that hold my rub rail on….I’d like to be able to get to them with out tearing out my galley (like last time).

Thanks

Very nice.
the upright is fridge, the chest to left is frezzer
thats just how we do it in NZ, brine right around We just bought the componats from a crowd in Seattle, the comp, and condenser and stuff
i think the fridge would have been better being an off shelf 230vac job, but not the freezer, you really need that thick insulation I have seen charter boats where the genny runs day and night, they just cant keep the stuff cold
nice nic pics guys

So I've been doing some mock-up on the dish holder/drain rack part of the galley.

The plan so far is to have the plates and bowels stowed in a rack high in the cabinet and the mugs and glasses stowed in a "tray" below.

Both will be accessible while stowed.
The dish rack will hinge/ rotate down and rest just above the counter out side the cabinet near the sink....at the same time the mug tray will rise up, tilt forward and slid over the edge of the backsplash so when draining the water will drip to the counter top..

Its probably over engineered, but I've had idle hands and the boat is far away.

Keep in mind these pictures are mock-up only...the dish rack will be from
mostly plastic.

The space dog pictures are a section/profile (side view)…the “head” is the dish rack and the rectangular “body” is for the mugs/glasses.

The plywood back represents the cabinet.

I don't photo, but what I did for my dishes was purchase a simple plastic covered wire shelf type dish rack. It's about 20" long and it's an L with the dishes meant to be held between the wires on the bottom and the back. A thicker metal rod connects the two forming a diagonal at each end which can also support the dishes (plates).

What I did with this "thing" is use it as a V do the diagonal support is horizontal. The rack is installed in a counter accessed from the counter next to the sink. I installed two pieces of wood at the 20" of so apart from the front of the cabinet to the back. The rack V is sits in small grooves in these strips and is held secure with cable ties. This is in a "dead corner" which is already difficult to access from a door under the galley sink. I installed a lift lid into the counter to access the dish rack. The dishes do not stack or sit on shelves, but they stand up as they would in a drying rack, but this rack is located below counter in a dead corner. Simple, cheap and it works! The hardest part was cutting the lift lid into the counter. And this involved trimming the lid and the opening with teak so cutting was not as critical as it might seem. But getting it to look right took some effort. The rack part was a piece of cake.

This is perfect for a yacht with a dead corner in the galley with unused counter over it.

Sounds like a good application....any chance of a picture?

What is your counter top material?

My dead corner is above the counter in the upper cabinet....my wife is fairly short and this is meant to help access that space.
If it works it'll be sweet...should just pull down with one easy move.

I decided to make the "mechanism" out of wood and laminated the pieces up today, hopefully tomorrow I'll start working on actual pieces instead of masonite and **** ply.

I know I'm spending way more time on this than is necessary, but I just love sorting this kind of thing out.
