Gailey Bay Launched 2012
Gailey Bay was launched in February 2012.
The brief from the owner was that the vessel needed to fit into a standard marina which he already owned.
The owner had a large input to the design drawing alot of the detail line and layout him-self.
The layout has a large owners cabin in the port hull fwd with ensuite toilet. an island queen size bunk makes it very comfortable and easy to get in and out of without climbing over your nearest and dearest in the middle of the night.
In the opposite hull are two large single berths.
Aft in both hulls are double bunks under the saloon sette area.
The aloon has a L-shape sette to Stb and a straight sette to Port, Both could be used for sleeping. Giving a total of 10 possible berths. Handy when there are lots of gand-children about.
The main helm is Fwd in the center of the saloon. The helm chair can be lowered and truned around to be used at the table.
The galley is to Stb in the aft part of the living area with plenty of bench space, Top loading freezer, Fridge, oven/stove, Microwave and all the space of a good sized apartment kitchen.
A large shower and toilet area is opposite the galley to Port.
The cockpit incorporates an L- shape seat Port and Stb with hatches down into the huge strorage areas and engine rooms.
The owner and his wife are keen on fishing so the aft beam is set up with everything needed. A live bait tank to Stb, insulated fish bin to Port, a basin/shower and hide away BBQ in the middle.
Open steps flow down onto large swim platforms.
Two large solar panels keep the batteries charged and the boat boasts a C-Zone system with remote battery switches and central computer system which eliminates a standard switch board system.
Gailey Bay is fitted with long-range fuel tanks which will give the boat the capability to cruise to Noumea without refueling.
The engine rooms house 150hp Volvo diesels with conventional shafts rotating 20" props. This gives the boat a cruise speed of 16 knot`s and a top speed of 23 knot`s.
