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 teak storage cabinet followed by a 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 twin Rattan chairs to the starboard side, provide comfortable seating for six in the salon. Along the starboard side is a full-length credenza that provides great storage capabilities, along with the additional storage space found beneath the port side settee. An entertainment center to the starboard aft corner of the credenza features audio-video equipment and a 20″ television.

The galley is tucked to the port side just forward of the salon, which is separated by a large Corian counter top peninsula with a teak bullnose and overhead galley cabinets which feature flybridge dumbwaiter access. Wrapping around the U-shaped counter of the galley you will find a two basin sink with disposal, a 3-burner ceramic cooktop, and a convection 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 drawers, and a full-sized refrigerator.

Following the five short steps straight down from the salon 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. A manual whale pump is located beneath the accommodation steps from the salon. Once in the passageway you will find upper/lower bunks in the cabin to starboard and a VIP guest stateroom to port with twin berths. Just forward of the starboard side cabin in the passageway is the guest head. The en-suite master stateroom tops off the accommodations at the forward peak of the vessel.

The master stateroom is composed of a queen sized island berth surrounded by shelves, cabinets, drawers, and his & hers hanging lockers to either side. This island berth arrangement allows for access from either side and the berth can be raised with gas-assisted struts to access a large storage cavity underneath, perfect for storing extra bed linens or keeping valuables out of sight. Over head are two hatches which, along with port holes to each side, provide natural light to the cabin. A wall-mounted 13’ color TV and access to the en-suite master head is found to port.

Both the master and guest heads are exceptionally spacious and feature shower stalls with teak flooring, mirrored vanities with sinks, and Corian countertops. With in the shower stall of the guest head is a combination washer & dryer unit.

The port stateroom features twin berths with a full length shelf to outboard. Storage is provided through a hanging locker, dresser, nightstand, shelving above, and drawers beneath the berths. The starboard stateroom features a upper and lower berth arrangement with ample storage through drawers, shelving, and cabinets.

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. Aft of the starboard side door you will find additional storage through a hanging wet locker and extra drawers. A large stainless steel teak-trimmed destroyer wheel and Fleming 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 flip table 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 davit to starboard while the hatch and step ladder to the cockpit resides to the port side. Overhead a white bimini top provides shade over the flybridge area, and the fiberglass radar arch supports the custom mast, dome, and open array radar antenna.

In common with all Flemings, the hull is hand laid and solid fiberglass reinforced with a grid of stringers and frames with further protection provided by epoxy barrier coats. 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 sealed natural 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 behind the step ladder that leads up to flybridge. 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 nonskid 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.
