Galley storage cabinets line the back of the counter. Starboard of the refrigerator are two deep stainless steel sinks with hot and cold pressure water and a manual foot pump. There are two opening ports and two hatches in the galley. All ports and hatches throughout the boat have screens.

A sit down navigation station is directly behind the galley on the port side. The chart table lifts up with storage underneath. A goose-neck reading light is mounted aft for light while working.
