This should give you around 24/25 Liter wort pre-boil at +/- gravity 1.052/3.
If your efficiency is better, you can always add some extra water before or during boil to correct.

After cooling down, yes, ~ 21 L at ~1.060.

Just to add, this advice for this was spot on, mashed in with 23L with a 6kg grist, sparged with 7 litres, and with the boil off 21 litres @ 1.061
