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 corner of the salon is a bar featuring ample glass and bottle storage as well as an icemaker. Forward of the bar along the port side is an L-shaped settee that wraps around to the edge of the galley counter-top and is complimented by a teak adjustable hi-lo table. This settee, along with the twin free-standing Rattan chairs to the starboard side, provide comfortable seating for six in the salon. Along the starboard side is a credenza which provides great storage capabilities and additional storage space is found beneath the port side settee. At the starboard aft corner of the credenza is an entertainment cabinet equipped with audio-video equipment and a 22” Samsung HD TV.

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 a double-bowl sink with disposal, a ceramic three burner cooktop, and convection microwave overhead. Teak cabinets and drawers 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 side-by-side refrigerator/freezer.

Following the five short steps straight down from the salon and through the companionway 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 bunk arrangement at the starboard cabin and a VIP guest stateroom to port featuring two twin-sized berths. Just forward of the starboard side guest stateroom in the passageway is a full-sized 220v washer & separate dryer followed by 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 via gas-assisted struts to access a large storage cavity underneath. Overhead are two skylights which along with port holes to each side, provide natural light to the cabin. To the port side of the cabin is a wall-mounted 15” flat-screen TV and access to the en-suite master head

Both master and guest heads feature spacious shower stalls with teak drain floors. Each head contains Headhunter electric flush toilets, Grohe thermostatic controlled fixtures, mirrored vanities, and Corian countertops.

The port stateroom features two twin-sized berths with storage provided by a hanging locker, with dresser drawers beneath, at the foot of the outboard berth. Additional storage is accomplished by drawers below each berth, a nightstand, and built-in shelving along the aft wall. The starboard cabin features a two berth bunk arrangement with the top bunk capable of sliding in towards the outboard wall to provide more space for a single guest. A nightstand and mirror are situated at the inboard wall of the cabin while storage is found via cabinets, drawers, and shelving.

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 bridge decks. To the aft of the port side door resides a raised corner 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 locker and extra drawers. Salon access is found through a privacy door to aft, along with steps up to the flybridge access hatch directly aft of the helm. A large stainless steel teak-trimmed 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 with a fixed 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 features a davit, tender, and mounted tender chocks. A sliding hatch with step ladder to the cockpit resides to the aft port side. Overhead an off-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. Vinylester resin is utilized below the waterline on the hull 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 natural teak, except for the fiberglass non-skid foredeck, while all of the  caprails, trim, and combing boards are comprised of varnished teak. The cockpit features a control station located starboard of the salon doors while a cockpit storage is to port behind the step ladder that leads up to flybridge. On the cockpit deck are four gasketed 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 fiberglass swim platform.

Moving forward along the decks you will discover entry gates on either side of the cockpit side decks. These gates provide a lower point of entry close to the water line, meanwhile additional gates on either side of the raised Portuguese bridge give the option for a higher access point. Up to the bow will bring you to a fiberglass non-skid foredeck with varnished teak 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 which provide a convenient spot 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 lazerette 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 lazerette 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.
