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 storage cabinet with drawers which anchors the large L-shaped settee that wraps around to the edge of the galley counter-top and is complimented by a teak hi-lo table. This settee, along with the recliner to the starboard side, provides comfortable seating for five. To the starboard side is a partial credenza which provides great storage capabilities, with additional storage space found beneath the port side settee. An entertainment center to the starboard aft corner features audio-video equipment fit behind a teak cabinet and a 40” Samsung HD TV mounted above the cabinet.

  • Intellian antenna control unit – satellite receiver
  • JVC KD-R740BT receiver—Bluetooth
  • Insignia DVD player

  • Salon recliner – white
  • Salon carpet & blinds – (new 2015)

The galley is tucked to the port side just forward of the salon, which is separated by a large Corian counter top peninsula and overhead galley cabinets with flybridge dumbwaiter access. Wrapping around the U-shaped counter of the galley you will find an over-mounted stainless steel double-bowl sink with disposal, a three burner cooktop, and a stainless steel microwave overhead. Teak cabinets 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 stainless steel refrigerator.

Following the five short steps straight down from the salon and through the companionway privacy door will lead you to the central passage of the accommodations. This traditional layout has been a signature mainstay in the Fleming 55 that 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 two-berth bunk arrangement in the guest cabin to starboard along with a VIP guest stateroom to port with a two twin-berth side by side arrangement. Just forward of the starboard side guest stateroom in the passageway is the guest head which also houses the Ariston washer/dryer combo unit (2016). 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 shelves, cabinets, drawers, and a hanging locker. 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 Bomar skylights (2017) which, along with two port holes to each side, provide natural light to the cabin. The stateroom also features a small safe (2016) within the flooring to port, a 24” Samsung HD TV (2016) wall mounted to port, and access to the en-suite master head is found to the aft port wall of the stateroom.

Both the master and guest heads are exceptionally spacious and feature shower stalls with star-board floors and new shower sump pumps in both showers (2016), mirrored vanities with sinks, and marble countertops.

The port stateroom has two twin 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 is found through drawers underneath each berth and shelving above. The starboard stateroom features twin berths in a bunk arrangement. The top bunk can slide in towards the outboard wall to provide more space for a single guest. There is a large mirror on the forward wall and storage is provided via drawers and a nightstand. All three staterooms have intercom systems linked throughout and all the headboards were recovered in 2015.

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 modern 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 decks. To the aft of the port side door resides a raised L-shaped settee and table which provides a comfortable social area with phenomenal visibility while underway. A large stainless steel teak-accented destroyer wheel and Stidd 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 and a fixed fiberglass table with a removable teak top. 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 features a Nautical Structures davit, tender, and mounted tender chocks. Overhead a white bimini top provides shade over the flybridge area and the fiberglass radar arch supports the custom mast, dome, and open array.

In common with all Flemings, the hull is hand laid and solid fiberglass reinforced with a grid of stringers and frames. A reasonable five foot draft allows for Bahamas cruising while ensuring that the running gear is protected by a full-length keel which is foam filled and glassed across the top to isolate it from the hull. This keel provides nearly a foot length of protection before the running gear.

On deck she has the mainstay walk-around decks in combination with high bulwarks and a Portuguese bridge, which ensures security for both children and pets. The decks themselves are synthetic teak, while all of the wood caprails, trim, and combing boards are varnished teak. The cockpit features a control station located starboard of the salon doors while additional storage is to port. On the cockpit deck are four gasketed and lockable hatches that provide access to the engine room and spacious lazarette. The transom of the cockpit features a large gate that swings in to allow ingress to the swim platform.

Moving forward along the side decks you will discover entry gates on either side of the cockpit side decks, these gates provide lower entry close to the water line. Up to the bow will bring you to a teak foredeck with stainless steel handrails. Special attention has been paid to the ease and safety in which the heavy duty ground tackle is set and retrieved. The anchor platform accepts two anchors, the primary can be controlled by a handheld unit at the platform or by controls at both the pilothouse and flybridge helm stations. The anchor locker directly beneath the pulpit can serve as a great place for fender storage as well. Furthermore the inside wall of the Portuguese bridge includes two storage cabinets that give convenient storage for dock lines, windshield covers, and cleaning supplies.

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, steering gear, and air conditioning compressors 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.
