AF­TER THE PARTY

Yachting - - EXPERIENCE -

Per­haps not sur­pris­ingly, given that my test yacht was built for an Aus­tralian owner, its gal­ley was aft. A stan­dard place­ment in his part of the world, the lo­ca­tion gives the chef good ac­cess to the cock­pit. (Aus­tralians aren’t known for stay­ing in­doors, es­pe­cially while on the wa­ter.) An aft-fac­ing elec­tric win­dow, one of three on the 60’s main deck (the oth­ers are to port and star­board), opens to let in cool breezes and keep the cook en­gaged in cock­pit con­ver­sa­tions. For own­ers who pre­fer a dif­fer­ent lay­out, Grand Banks has a for­ward gal­ley op­tion with slightly more space for in­door en­ter­tain­ing.
