Smile Pretty French Model.....

Rhea in Northern France make some lovely trawlers.

Here's the 36' version: I love the fold down transom idea.....

Putting the galley across the cockpit doors makes great sense in a warm climate: you can cook from outside in the cockpit, or from inside on bad days!

There is a lift up window on a strut over the sink/work surface so the galley can be worked from either side.

Here's the galley arrangement on the Ferreti 53'.


Notice the same lifting window with strut that closes off the galley from the cockpit.

I like the Rhea 36' setup better.........

I was just thinking if you had double sided drawers in the galley units, you could open them from both sides.

Would the drawers be too deep to keep stuff like knifes and forks etc......?

You know all that stuff that gets pushed to the back of the drawers in your kitchen units that you can never find!

Based upon the French ladie's stern this is no trawler, right Eric?. BTW, seems a clone of the Fathom 40.

I think that putting the galley along the cockpit door frees up all the saloon space for two massive long couches like in the Ferreti design.

Even in a narrow saloon it might be possible too squeeze in two couches, and when stopped you could have a 'flip up' helm seat to open even more space up.

The seating arrangement on the Princess 30' ds (deck saloon) from the 80's had two long couches facing each other, the helm seat folded down to extend the length of the two enormous couches; perfect for entertaining lots of guests indoors if they weather turns bad.

This would have made a perfect boat for the cockpit galley idea.

The standard European kitchen unit is 2' 1" deep.

So making the drawers slide out in both directions would definitely work; the drawers wouldn't be too deep.

Sacre Bleu! At last a builder has the sense to extend the over head to cover the cockpit. Don't know about the fold down transom; the Krogen Silhouette 42 had the same feature and the boat was a failure selling only 12 or 13 of them before ending the run. The hydraulically operated stern gate might have had something to do with the design's early demise.

These 'tri-fold' doors on the Broom 35 coupe would make it very easy to adopt the cockpit galley.

While living in Berlin, 2007-2010, I can't remember which year, but on a visit to the Dusseldorf Boat Show, Greenline introduced it's 33' Hybrid and Diesel versions. The layout was basically the same as above, fold-down transom included. I suppose this layout has become a Euro-style of cruiser.

The folding transom would be even better IF it could accept the dink simply driven or pulled on.

Hard to steal, always ready for instant use and , no need for a wing engine as a get home.
