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 throughout as well as making it possible to appreciate the full length of the boat from forepeak bulkhead to transom. The arrangement provides a three berth guest cabin to starboard, a port-side VIP stateroom with a queen berth & overhead bunk, and an en-suite master stateroom forward. The accommodations are dressed with teak and ultra-leather and offer great comfort and convenience without any steep stairs to negotiate. Russound audio/video control panels are situated throughout the staterooms and centrally located in the passageway behind a sliding teak door is the full-sized Bosch Axxis washer & separate dryer.
The master stateroom includes a queen-sized island berth, a layout which allows access from either side of the berth. The recessed skylight overhead, in combination with port holes to either side provide natural light to the cabin. Ample storage is found via his & hers hanging lockers, drawers, and shelving. Additionally, a large cavity underneath the queen berth can be accessed through a hydraulic lift, perfect for storing extra bed linens or keeping valuables out of site. To the aft wall to starboard is a teak vanity with a flip up mirror and cabinets overhead. The inboard corner section of the vanity features a flip up top giving access to a hidden laundry hamper. The en-suite master head access is found to port.
Both master and guest head are exceptionally spacious with generous glass and stainless steel shower enclosures. Hansgrohe fixtures and granite countertops compliment the matching granite flooring in the one piece molded fiberglass shower stalls. Both heads are also equipped with mirrored medicine cabinets, bountiful storage options, and luxurious heated towel racks.
The port stateroom features a queen berth along the outboard wall with a slide-out bunk overhead and storage drawers below. A large hanging locker with drawers is to forward, at the foot of the queen berth. To the inboard wall is a mirrored vanity/desk offering a variety of storage compartments, drawers, and cabinets. The starboard stateroom has two twin-sized berths crossed over-under each other along with a third roll-out berth overhead. Underneath the upper bunk is a hanging locker, which along with the other drawers and cabinets, provides ample storage for the longest of trips.
The pilothouse is the nerve center of the Fleming and is separated from the activities throughout the rest of the vessel by a privacy door, however it remains only a few short steps from the salon. The forward console area has been designed to accommodate a full array of today’s modern electronics, and easy accessibility has been built in to allow for service and future upgrades. The electrical distribution panels are below the main controls and are hinged and illuminated for access and service.
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 with fitted carpeting on top. To aft port is a corner settee and table which provides an excellent view while underway and doubles as a pilothouse watch-berth. A desk area with a swing out stool to starboard provides working space for charts, cruising books, laptops, and navigation instruments. Aft of the desk, you will find large storage drawers perfect for binoculars, cell phone chargers, log books, charts, flashlights and everything else a captain needs to chart and follow a safe course. A Stidd helm chair and a large stainless steel teak-trimmed destroyer wheel compliments the ambiance of this ultimate cruising yacht.

Deck & Construction Details
In common with all Flemings, the hull is hand laid solid fiberglass reinforced with a grid of stringers and frames. Vinylester resin is used above and below the waterline with further protection below the waterline provided by epoxy barrier coats. Propeller tunnels allow the draft to be kept low 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.
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 windlass controls at both the pilothouse and flybridge stations.
On deck she has the familiar walk-around decks we are used to seeing on all the Flemings and the high bulwarks and Portuguese Bridge provide security for both children and pets. The foredeck features hatches in the cabin trunk which allow for a tremendous amount of storage. The foredeck access houses the chain locker and is a great storage location for the larger fenders. Fuel fills are conveniently located on each side under the steps to the Portuguese bridge. A high speed transfer pump and large bore transfer lines ease refueling. The capacious cockpit has built-in seating through corner lockers with twin cablemasters housed within. Cockpit docking controls are located starboard of the salon doors while storage is located conveniently to port, beneath the step ladder to the flybridge. Lockable hatches against gaskets provide access to the engine room and spacious lazarette.

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, Sea Torque Systems bolt on shaft 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.
