Entering from the aft cockpit deck you are immediately greeted with a capacious salon. Featuring the timeless appeal of teak cabinetry, vast windows, teak sole with holly accents, and most importantly, an interior layout that balances form with function. This layout allows for an open social environment while keeping the function of the galley separated from the rest of the salon. With a 16’ beam, this spacious open floor plan makes entertaining guests an effortless endeavor.

Starting at the aft-port side of the salon is a corner storage cabinet end table anchoring a large L-shaped settee that wraps around the port side to the edge of the galley counter-top and is complimented by a teak hi-lo table. This settee, along with the two chairs to the starboard side, provides comfortable seating for six in the salon. To the starboard side is a full length credenza with an entertainment center to the aft corner featuring audio-video equipment fit behind a teak cabinet and a 32” HD TV situated above the cabinet.

  • (2) Salon chairs
  • Salon curtains, blinds, and (4) openable windows

The galley is tucked to the port side just forward of the salon, which is separated by a large Formica counter top peninsula and overhead galley cabinets with flybridge dumbwaiter access. Wrapping around the U-shaped counter of the galley you will find a trash compactor, stainless steel double-bowl sink, an oven/cooktop combo, and a microwave overhead. Teak cabinetry fill in the rest of the galley including a storage compartment just forward of the cook top that can accommodates a full range of saucepans. Across to the opposing starboard side is a dish storage compartment, additional storage drawers, and a full-sized refrigerator.

  • Amana full-size refrigerator—teak panel

  • Formica counter tops

Following the five short steps straight down from the salon will lead you to the central passage of the accommodations. This traditional layout has since become a signature mainstay in the Fleming 55 design which provides an easy and convenient flow of traffic throughout the boat. This central accommodations passage also makes it possible to appreciate the full length of the vessel from forepeak bulkhead to transom. Once in the passageway you will find a VIP guest stateroom to port with a two twin-berth side by side arrangement. Across the passageway to starboard side is a guest cabin featuring a bunk arrangement and the guest head which also houses the 110V washer/dryer combo unit. The en-suite master stateroom at the forward peak of the vessel tops off the accommodations.

The master stateroom is composed of a queen sized island berth surrounded by his & hers dressers & hanging lockers to either side. This island berth arrangement allows for access from either side and the berth can be raised to access a large storage cavity underneath, perfect for storing extra bed linens or keeping valuables out of sight. Over head are two skylights hatches which, along with port holes to each side, provide natural light to the cabin. The stateroom also features a 32” HD TV situated above the dresser to starboard and large mirror to the aft starboard wall. The en-suite master head is found to aft-port of the stateroom.

Both the master and guest heads are exceptionally spacious and feature shower stalls with teak grated floors, mirrored vanities with sinks, heads, storage compartments, and countertops.

The port stateroom is outfitted with two twin-sized berths with a small nightstand separating them. Along the forward wall of the stateroom is a large hanging locker with drawers below and a full length mirror. Additional storage can found through drawers underneath each berth and shelving above. Natural light is provided to the cabin via two portholes to the outboard wall. The starboard guest cabin features a over-under bunk arrangement with a full length mirror on the aft wall. Storage for this starboard stateroom is provided via a hanging locker to forward, drawers beneath the bottom berth, and a nightstand.

In many modern yacht designs it has become commonplace to eliminate the inside steering station, however the Fleming 55 features a dedicated pilothouse which closely resembles the bridge of a much larger vessel. This dedicated pilothouse takes the role as the primary location to operate the boat without any distractions from other on-board activities. With that said it remains only three short steps up from the salon & galley and it is only another four interior steps up to the flybridge.

Visibility forward and wrapping around to port and starboard windows is excellent. Below the expansive windshield are consoles which provide ample room for a full range of electronics and equipment without intruding on the engine instrumentation. Overhead consoles provide additional space for equipment within easy reach. Both AC and DC electrical breaker panels are below the console to either side and can swing out to provide access to wiring connections. There is a proper chart area to the starboard side with large drawers for maps, cruising guides, navigation instruments, binoculars, and other necessities. Centered along each port and starboard side of the pilothouse are sliding doors that lead out to the side Portuguese deck. To the aft port corner resides a raised L-shaped settee and fixed table which provides a comfortable social area with phenomenal visibility while underway. A large stainless steel teak-accented destroyer wheel and helm chair finish off the pilothouse and perfectly accent this ultimate cruising yacht.

The flybridge is easily accessed from the interior steps in the pilothouse or by the ladder from the cockpit. It features a two-seat upper helm station located to port that provides excellent visibility particularly in close quarters and bustling harbors with its 360 degree view. The electronics console is large enough to house an array of equipment with easy access to the rear of the console available by hinging open the bookshelf behind the pilothouse settee below. The starboard side of the flybridge features a U-shaped settee which wraps around a fixed fiberglass table. Aft of the helm on the port side consists of an additional settee and the hatch for the galley dumbwaiter access. The following aft boat deck is non-skid and features mounted tender chocks, an electric 1200 lbs capacity davit, and a sliding hatch which leads to the cockpit below by a stepladder. Overhead a white bimini top provides shade over the flybridge area and the fiberglass radar arch supports the mast and other instrumentations.

Superior systems and engineering are key elements for Fleming Yachts, whose philosophy has always been to choose only the best equipment available and have it be readily accessible for maintenance. The main engine room access is from two outside hatches just aft of the salon doors. The salon floor panels can also come apart for greater access to the engine room when needed. Air intake for the engines is accomplished through openings underneath the cockpit combing boards which then travels through the lazarette and then to the engines thus allowing for less salt to come in contact with the engine components. To achieve the extremely low sound and vibration that Flemings are known for, Aquadrive systems transfer the thrust directly to the hull and the engine is isolated by using soft engine mounts.

Aft of the engine room, the lazarette houses the water tanks and steering gear while also leaving ample room for storing cruising gear such as deck chairs, spare anchors, rode, lines, fenders, and extra parts. Having the air conditioning compressors located here instead of in a hot engine room improves performance and efficiency while minimizing noise.
