The Fleming’s deep keel provides protection for the running gear and stability in following seas. Because noise and vibration contribute to fatigue, Fleming has paid special attention to producing a yacht which has become the standard in the industry for its whisper quiet, smooth ride. Fundamental to this achievement is the use of Aqua drive anti-vibration drive systems. Other builders either charge a heavy premium for this or do not offer it at all.
The Fleming 55 was first introduced in 1986, and since that time it has benefited from a rigorous program of evolution. There have been literally hundreds of improvements made, both big and small. While its legendary hull design remains essentially the same, today’s Fleming 55 is a thoroughly modern yacht utilizing advanced technology, materials and construction methods. In 2008 hull number 200 was launched, making it one of the most successful production yachts in history.
The Fleming 55 is also available in a 2-cabin version (2 staterooms and 2 heads), see photos in the gallery.
