Forward on the port side is teak cabinetry with book shelves, cabinet storage, ice maker and pantry.
The "U-shaped" galley is forward of the saloon on the starboard side and offers generous Corian® countertop space and a large stainless steel sink. There is more than ample storage in multiple cabinets and drawers. The open faced feature allows the chef to be included in the social activites while preparing gourmet meals.
