The dining area fills the forward salon with a round table for 10, notable for its inlaid and backlit onyx center, all perfectly positioned under a circular overhead treatment with triple waterfall relief and a chandelier. The granite sole provides scuff protection (and easy cleaning) that continues the round theme, and china cabinets set the area apart. A round dining table creates informality: all guests can converse with each other-appropriate for the "clubby" theme.
Interestingly enough, the galley, which is just forward on the port side, is also finished in the same sapele, as well as acres of gleaming stainless steel on the counters, cabinets, and appliances. Anyone with the faintest gourmet pretensions would swoon to have such a food-preparation space in their home, highlighted by a full walk-in (not reach-in) freezer and a six-burner gas stove with oven. A settee is to port with a granite-topped table, ostensibly for the off-watch crew to hang out or grab snacks. I wouldn't be surprised, however, to find guests wandering in to watch the chef at work. It might even lead to cooking demonstrations: the galley as theater.
Thoughtfully designed from the crew's standpoint, the galley has a well-equipped butler's prep station that separates it from the guests. Equally thoughtful are doors from both the foyer and the port deck so groceries can move directly from boarding ladder to galley.
