The galley is a refreshing change of pace. Its U shape surrounds the cook, makes preparation easy and keeps things safe. The galley's location, between the forward settee and main saloon, is an added bonus. Appliances and hardware are top shelf. Our test boat had a double sink, a dishwasher, a three-burner ceramic-top Princess stove, a Panasonic microwave/convection oven and a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer. Despite all the appliances, stowage was plentiful, including overhead cabinets, a pantry and enough space to bring the daily dishware and the good china.
