As any boater knows a successful cruise relies just as much on keeping the crew well fueled as keeping the vessel well fueled. Cooking while underway should add to the overall boating experience – not be a draining chore.
Helmsman Trawlers® understands the importance of a good galley to making cooking enjoyable. We pay special attention to the layout and features found in our galleys. The result? Cooking and eating aboard a Helmsman Trawlers® becomes a part of the overall pleasure of a boat trip!
Durable and Gorgeous, with Minimal Maintenance
Step aboard a Helmsman Trawlers® and you’ll find an inviting space rich with warm woods, thoughtful lighting, and a perfect layout for cooking and entertaining. Plus ample storage with plenty of drawers, cabinet space and removable cushions in the settee that reveal storage lockers. There are also additional cabinets throughout the salon.
Additionally, the windows in the galley space all open, a feature not found on all motor yachts. This allows for fresh sea breezes and great ventilation.
We aim to make time spent aboard focused on the cruising experience, not worrying about if this or that is working right, or what sort of attention a boat element may or may not need. In galley design we’ve chosen components that combine durable, long-lasting beauty with minimal maintenance requirements.
Countertops: Elegance Made to Last
On Helmsman Trawlers® the countertops are made of Caesarstone® quartz mineral. With quartz being the hardest stone surface, even harder than steel, these countertops are sure to withstand the test of anything encountered while underway. Additionally, Caesarstone® countertops are nonporous, non-toxic, require no sealants or wax, and do not host bacteria, mold, or mildew – so they remain safe and hygienic, leaving you more time to enjoy cruising and less time cleaning. The galley counters are edged with teak fiddles, to contain spilled liquids and which serve as convenient handholds when necessary.
Caesarstone® also enables great flexibility in surface design with a wide variety of patterns, various finishes, and rich colors to choose from – a customization that helps you make the galley feel all your own.
Dependable Galley Components
In choosing galley components we opt for proven design. For example, the Force 10 propane range and oven is a reliable, classic standard built from stainless steel.
Our standard galley includes:
A propane Force 10 galley range, with the option to substitute a Kenyon electric induction cooktop or a Miele propane cooktop and with a Samsung convection oven/microwave,
A microwave, if the convection oven / microwave is not selected,
Nova Kool 9 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer,
A Moen 1.5 basin sink with teak wood coverings, with an option to choosing a single basin to maximize counterspace.
Whether it’s boiling up fresh caught crab on the stove or putting together simple sandwiches on the go this galley is well-equipped for all your dining needs.
High Quality Woodwork
The fine teak woodwork found aboard Helmsman Trawlers® is something we really take pride in. It requires great time and attention to accomplish. Our teak is varnished with many layers of two-part hand brushed varnish, resulting in strength and water resistance – not to mention lending a warm, comfortable feel to the interior of the vessel.
The salon table is also composed of this durable teak and when folded out reveals a gorgeous compass rose inlay. The table, combined with the seating arrangement, makes for an overall inviting and comfortable dining and relaxing space for you and your guests.
