The Galley

I continue to play with SketchUp and have now started producing conceptual drawings of the various boat compartments so that Ben gets an indication of our ideas regarding the layout.  These two are of the port (left) and starboard (right) sides of the 6ft through galley.

Galley Port Side
At the far end is a 1ft wide pantry.  Jan wants drawers in the bottom half and a cupboard door with adjustable shelves in the top half.  The bench top is granite with a rectangular stainless steel sink.  Drainage grooves will be cut into the granite top.  The wall behind the bench top has a glass splashback rather than tiles.  Under the bench there are two cupboards with shelves.  Originally there were three cupboards and then I realised the washing machine wouldn’t fit under the bed in the back cabin so it has been moved to under the bench.
Galley Starboard Side
This is a view of the starboard side.  The granite bench top has a four ring gas hob and the glass splashback.  Underneath the hob are three drawers.  Two are deep pot drawers and the 3rd is shallow because of the gas hob.  It will be the cutlery drawer. Beside the drawers is a cupboard with shelves.  Above the bench top is a set of glass fronted cupboards. At the right end is the 12v Shoreline fridge, wall oven and microwave oven. The ‘kickboards’ in the galley have shallow pull out drawers.  All the drawers have ‘soft close’ and retain mechanisms.
No!  I didn’t draw Jan in the sketch.  The lady came with the program and I left her in the drawing to give Jan idea of the scale.
