What features are important in a galley?
Well, a lot of that depends on the size boat and how you plan to use it. A 25′ boat obviously has a lot less space available for the galley than a 50-footer does. But that doesn’t mean that the 25-footer can’t have a workable galley and a reasonable amount of storage.
One thing to note on all boats is that the majority of your storage space for provisions won’t be in the galley — it’ll be under the floorboards, behind the settees and so on, with smaller lockers right in the galley. Use these to keep a small supply of things you use all the time handy.
There are several posts dealing with galley design issues:
