22 Feb Real-Life Monohull Galley Storage
Last week, I showed the galley storage on our 34′ Gemini catamaran. This turned out to be a really popular post, as it’s so hard to imagine how the storage areas would really work when you’re looking at boats.
Several readers asked to see the storage areas — as they are in use, not cleaned out for a photo op — on a monohull. Reader Rosalind Franks generously offered to take photos aboard her Caliber 40LRC (the LRC means it’s the “long range cruising” model with larger tankage).
First a photo of their boat layout:

Drawers next to and a locker under the sink area:
Drawer contents from top to bottom:
The cupboard under the sink:
“Overflow” storage for bulk goods and cans behind the back of the starboard settee:
Paper goods and cleaning supplies behind the port settee:
Their table folds up against the wall and hides this wonderful wine and liquor cabinet! There’s a latch on the table, but they also use a bungee underway. Lots of non-slip material as padding, too!
