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 port side of the salon is a large L-shaped black leather settee anchored by a bar with a winecooler to aft. The settee wraps around to the edge of the galley counter-top and is complimented by a teak coffee/dining table. To the starboard side is a full length granite-topped credenza which provides great storage capabilities, along with the 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 32” Samsung HD TV.

  • Entertainment cabinet to starboard aft corner
  • Cable TV hookup
  • Fusion amp & AM/FM receiver
  • Speakers and volume control in salon, master stateroom, pilothouse, flybridge, & cockpit

  • Full length granite–topped credenza to starboard

The galley is tucked to the port side just forward of the salon, which is separated by a large granite counter top peninsula and overhead galley cabinets with flybridge dumbwaiter access. Wrapping around the U-shaped counter of the galley you will find a stainless steel double-bowl sink, a ceramic three burner cooktop with custom pot holders, a convection microwave overhead, and trash drawer. 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 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 an stateroom with a bunk arrangement to starboard and a VIP guest stateroom to port with twin berths and a third overhead slide-out bunk. 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, meanwhile a central vacuum system resides beneath the steps from the salon.

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 and safe underneath. Over head are two skylights which, along with port holes to each side, provide natural light to the cabin. To the port-side aft wall of the stateroom resides the en-suite master head.

Both master and guest heads are spacious with generous one piece molded fiberglass shower stalls. Each head contains Headhunter electric flush toilets, Hansgrohe thermostatic controlled fixtures, and granite countertops.

The port VIP stateroom features twin berths with a nightstand between them, along with an overhead slide-out third bunk to outboard. Storage is provided through a large hanging locker & dresser at the foot of the outboard berth, drawers below each berth, and built-in shelving along the aft wall. The starboard stateroom features twin bunks with the top berth able to slide towards the outboard wall to provide more room for a single guest. Storage in the starboard stateroom can be found through drawers, shelving, and a nightstand. Both guest staterooms feature a full length mirror on their forward walls.

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 cabinets and drawers, just forward of the passage down to the salon. 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. The hatch and step ladder to the cockpit resides to the aft port side. Overhead a bimini top provides shade over the flybridge area and the fiberglass radar arch supports the custom mast, domes, 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 non-skid Portuguese bridge, which ensures security for both children and pets. The decks themselves are 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 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 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 teak 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 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.
