Entering the salon from the aft deck through the double doors you are immediately impressed by the spaciousness and ambiance. The attention to detail and exquisite handmade teak raised paneled cabinets gives rise to feelings of warmth and relaxation. The 16’ beam provides space enough for dining and lounging areas and great care has been taken to balance scale with function. The open floor plan of the salon encompasses the galley and dining area which can comfortably seat six.

Along the port side of the salon is a large curved settee anchored by a granite topped storage cabinet to aft. Along the starboard side is a full length credenza with an entertainment center to aft, featuring a 28” LCD TV on a hydraulic lift, and forward of the credenza is a hidden wine-cooler. In front of the credenza are two rattan chairs complimenting a freestanding teak hi-lo table with foldout leafs can also double as a cockpit table when the needed.

The accommodations layout features a central passage which has proved to be so desirable over many years in the Fleming 55. This layout contributes to an easy and convenient flow of traffic through the boat as well as making it possible to appreciate the full length of the boat from forepeak bulkhead to transom. The arrangement provides twin bunks to starboard, a VIP guest cabin to port and an en-suite master stateroom forward. The accommodations are dressed with teak and Formica and offers great comfort and convenience without any steep stairs to negotiate. Centrally located in the passage behind a sliding teak door is the full-sized Malber washer & separate 220v dryer.

Master stateroom is forward featuring a queen sized island berth with a custom mattress, two full sized ‘his and hers’ hanging lockers, drawer storage, book shelves, two opening side ports, and two overhead hatches with sliding teak privacy and insect screens. The queen berth lifts for access to a enormous storage area underneath. The master head is complete with a sink, granite topped vanity, mirror, headhunter head system, and one piece fiberglass stall shower with tile floor and Grohe thermostatic controlled faucet.

Starboard guest stateroom has upper and lower berths with drawers, shelves, and a mirror. The upper berth slides to create more space for a single guest and there are two opening ports with screens. The portside guest stateroom features a twin berths with an additional sliding upper third berth. Other features include two opening portholes with screens and abundant storage with drawers, a hanging locker, and bookshelves. The guest head is accessed from the companionway and includes a sink, vanity with granite top, mirror, one piece fiberglass stall shower with tile floor and Grohe thermostatic controlled faucet.

In many modern designs it has become fashionable to eliminate the inside steering station, but the Fleming 55 features a pilothouse which closely resembles the bridge of a much larger vessel. Fleming created a dedicated place from which the boat is piloted and controlled without any distractions from other on-board activities but which is still only three steps from the salon and galley. Four interior steps safely lead to the upper flybridge station from the pilothouse.

Specially designed removable consoles provide ample room for a full range of modern electronic equipment without intruding on the full range of engine instrumentation. Overhead consoles provide additional space. There is also a proper chart area with drawers and a chart light. Both AC and DC electrical panels swing out to provide easy access to wiring connections and the inside of the flybridge console is accessed through a swing-out bookcase. The watch-keeper has their own helm seat and an adjacent, raised L-shaped settee and table provide a comfortable social area with excellent visibility through the side and forward windows.

Visibility forward and to port and starboard is excellent, and the two sliding doors open to the wide side decks. The traditional teak and holly sole is standard. There are large drawers and working space for charts, cruising books, and navigation instruments, binoculars and everything else a captain needs to chart and follow a safe course. A large stainless steel teak-trimmed destroyer wheel fits the ambiance of this ultimate cruising yacht.

The engine room is accessed from a hatch aft of the salon doors through the outside leading down to the oval, submarine-style, engine-room door with viewing port. Systems and engineering are a notable feature of all Fleming Yachts whose philosophy has always been to choose only the best equipment available for the job and make sure that it is readily accessible for maintenance. To achieve the extremely low sound and vibration that Flemings are known for, Aquadrive systems transfer the thrust directly to the hull and isolate the engine by using soft engine mounts.

The lazarette houses the water tanks, steering gear and air conditioning compressors while also leaving ample room for storing cruising gear such as spare anchors, rode, lines, fenders, and parts. Having the A/C compressors located here instead of in a hot engine room improves performance and efficiency and minimizes noise. Additionally, all battery isolation switches are accessible from outside the engine-room.
