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 and spacious open floor plan encompassing the salon with the galley, entertaining guests becomes effortless.

Starting at the aft port side corner is an icemaker fit within a teak cabinet with a granite countertop. Moving forward along the port side is a large L-shaped settee that wraps inboard around the front edge of the galley counter-top and is complimented by a teak hi-lo table. This settee, along with an additional settee at the starboard side, provides comfortable seating for six in the salon. The starboard side consists of a teak cabinet flip-top dry bar to forward of the settee, and a entertainment cabinet at the starboard aft corner. Here audio-video equipment is custom fit behind a teak cabinet and a 32” HD TV is situated on a retractable TV lift.

The galley is tucked to the port side just forward of the salon, which is separated by a large granite countertop peninsula and overhead galley cabinets. Within the inboard overhead cabinet is a dumbwaiter that can be accessed from a hatch up on the flybridge. Wrapping around the U-shaped counter of the galley you will find a black Silgranite double-bowl sink, 3-burner cooktop, dishwasher & trash compactor below, and a microwave overhead. Teak cabinets fill in the rest of the galley including storage compartments just forward of the cook top that can accommodate a full range of cookware. Across to the opposing starboard side is a dish storage compartment, additional storage drawers, and full-sized teak faced 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 and provides an easy and convenient flow of traffic throughout the boat. The 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 two bunk arrangement within the starboard cabin, along with a VIP guest stateroom to port featuring two twin-sized berths and a third overhead bunk. Just forward of the starboard side stateroom in the passageway is a full-sized Bosch Axxis 220v washer & separate dryer followed by the guest head. The en-suite master stateroom with a island-queen berth tops off the accommodations at the forward peak.

The master stateroom is composed of a queen sized island berth surrounded by shelves, cabinets, drawers, and his & hers hanging lockers to each side. The island berth arrangement allows for access from either side and the berth can be raised with a hydraulic lift to access a large storage cavity underneath, perfect for storing extra bed linens or keeping valuables out of sight. Over head are two skylight hatches which along with port holes, provide natural light to the cabin. In between the two skylights is an emergency escape hatch that leads to the foredeck of the vessel. To the port side of the stateroom is a wall-mounted 15” TV and access to the master head.

Both the master and guest heads are exceptionally spacious and feature one-piece molded fiberglass shower stalls, glass and stainless steel shower enclosures, mirrored vanities with Grohe thermostatic controlled fixtures, Headhunter systems, and granite countertops.

The port stateroom features two twin-sized berths with a night stand in-between and a third slide-out bunk overhead to outboard. At the foot of both berths is a wall mounted 15” Sharp TV and a large hanging locker with dresser drawers below. Additional drawers are found beneath the berths and more storage in provided by the shelving along the walls overhead. The starboard cabin features a two bunk arrangement with storage drawers beneath, a hanging locker, and a full length mirror. A 13” Insignia flatscreen TV is mounted at the inboard wall of the cabin.

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 control 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 and backside of displays. 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 locker and extra drawers. 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 wrap-around settee and a fixed fiberglass table with a varnished teak topper. Aft of the helm to the port side will find the hatch for the galley dumbwaiter followed by an additional settee. The following aft boat deck features a Steelhead 1,000 lbs hydraulic davit, mounted tender chocks, 12’ Nautica tender, and a Switlik 6-man liferaft. The hatch and step ladder to the cockpit resides to the aft port side of the boat deck, along with the aft control station. Overhead, a custom fiberglass hardtop with stainless steel supports is attached to the radar arch, which in turn supports the custom hinged 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 and above 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 side decks and in combination with high bulwarks and a enclosed Portuguese bridge deck, security for both children and pets is ensured. The exterior decks are natural teak, while all of the cap rails and coaming boards throughout are comprised of varnished teak. The cockpit features a control station located starboard of the salon doors while a built-in cooler/ice box 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. Finally, the transom of the cockpit features a large gate that swings in to allow ingress to the teak-decked 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, meanwhile additional gates at either side of the raised Portuguese bridge give the option for a higher point of entry. 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, each of which 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 coaming 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, Aqua-Drive thrust-bearing 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. Additionally, all battery isolation switches are accessible from outside the engine-room.
