Have you ever wondered what kitchen galleys are like on those massive luxury yachts? You know, the ones where the owners want to entertain 150 people on deck? Of course as you might imagine, the answer is — they’re modern and spectacular, with fancy appliances and granite throughout!

As you can see above, the main sink has plenty of counter space around it, and there was a separate countertop across the walkway to put finished dishes before serving. Another counterspace was located beside the range for convenient prep work.

And here’s the head chef preparing food for the crew. This kitchen is too nice to leave idle, it stays in use even when in port.
