Catering for the galley with Roland

Written by Laura Nicholls

A superyacht galley is central to two of the most important aspects of being onboard: dining and entertainment. It is a space that can quickly transform into a busy communal space in any home and having designers who can utilise multifunctional spaces on board is a key factor when building a yacht.

A prominent feature of superyacht design can be found in having multiple areas suitable for entertainment, as seen in sailing yachts such as the 77.6-metre M5, previously Mirabella V, who has at least three interior spaces that can be adapted to accommodate a large social party. The motor yacht Kismet boasts a large luxury formal dining area, as well as informal bars and lounges for all 12 of her guests.    Roland GmbHPhoto: Roland GmbH

In the kitchen galley area, owners and guests will interact with the chef and crew to discuss suppliers and provisions, the evening’s fare, entertainment schedules or make a request for a particular cuisine. As the galley is a demanding work environment, it is important to encourage exceptional job performance from all those who will work in the kitchen. If ‘a man is only as good as his tools,’ it is important to consider several details when designing a galley, regardless of size:  

  • It is an active area and will be in operation at least three times a day  
  • Equipment and interiors must be designed to the owner’s taste and meet the requirements of the chef
  • How much traffic will be passing through the area (stews, stewardesses, chefs, guests, suppliers and crew)

The experienced technicians at Roland have refined the process of creating the perfect galley - ensuring that the assembly, installation and testing are all supervised together with the yacht’s crew. Roland is also able to assist in producing custom appliances, such as stands for custom wine fridges for owners’ areas, outdoor fridges and freezers, removable outdoor beer taps and stainless steel minibars - all of which come with their own operation journal, which is created to confirm that the main functions and operation of the appliances are all of a high standard.  Roland Germany galley technicianGalley facilities from Roland are meticulously planned for and are kept up to the highest standards to ensure that dining and entertainment remain at the heart of the yachting experience. To find out more about Roland and their professional services and capabilities, contact them directly by using the details found below.
