    My dear Navigator is delighted that our newer boat has galley in the pilot house, thus aft. Less far to carry tea without spilling in in a seaway. Less far to go to cook when whole boat is rolling like a fairground ride. Helmsman can even steer while keeping an eye of kettle, if the off watch is asleep or engaged in charts. As other have said, some boats seemed designed for use in marinas, or perhaps calmer and kindlier waters than the British Isles

    That Kelt 39 looks to be an interesting layout & I quite like it. I would really like a yacht with a good view whilst sat in the saloon. Seem to be quite rare though.

    Whats the forward double cabin like, anyone know?

    I don't like the sound of that for sleeping. Our main cabin is up forward but when at sea we use one of the aft cabins as a hot bunk as the motion is much less there (and the off watch person is much closer to the on watch person for alerting, or just chatting through a problem without having to get out of bed.)

    My LM has the galley in the wheelhouse. Kettle within arms reach of the helmsman when using the wheel ; or in sight and a few feet away with no intervening steps when using the tiller in the cockpit.

    Mines an an LM27 - slower than our Westerly Pentland but nicer layout and suits this ageing sailor and his Navigator
