My #1 requirement on any self contained multi-stay-over cruiser boat = Flying Bridge. Linda's # 1 on same style boat = Up Galley. Both items set fine with each of us! We remain in "sea-quilibrium” aboard our boats!!

Galley up or down is something people feel very strongly about, both ways. Seems to be slightly preference to up but a lot of down too. I think partly depends on size boat. And many of the ones who like their galley's down, don't have them all the way down, just half a level down from the helm. So probably more galley up, then some galley half way, then a few completely down. More the gourmet cooks who want privacy all the way down.

Now we have a coupe which is a day boat and fun boat and a few overnights with galley down, but we would never have one down for real cruising. On that boat though as space up is limited, having a galley and sitting area down gives a second area to sit.

Still for trawler and cruising put us in the galley up group.

Slowboat 37 has offered some VERY important advice that we whole heartedly agree with. Check out Yachtworld.com and use the advanced search. Just plug in your criteria and then check the photos. We're considering a Helmsman Yachts Pilot House 38 because of the molded steps up to the flybridge (among other features). You can check them out at 38 Pilothouse

Is beating a dead horse if you ever expect a universal verdict, but to an individual couple choosing it is a major issue often. It's something they should put on their check list as to their preference if any.

There is no right or wrong, just what is right or wrong for the one person. A hundred such issues in the selection of a boat. Single vs. twin? Flybridge? Teak vs. glass? Glass vs. steel? But all part of one figuring out what they like.
