Galley down reduces rolling for the cook while underway. The lower in the boat, the less the rolling. Also, as others have posted, the dishes are not in your face if you choose not to tackle immediately after dinner.

I hadn't looked at the GB 46 until you mentioned it and I see what you mean. Galley down also provides for a port side door. I like!
