Starting at the aft-port side of the salon is a teak storage cabinet followed by a large L-shaped settee that wraps around to the edge of the galley counter top and is complimented by a teak hi-lo table. This settee, along with the twin rattan chairs to starboard, provide comfortable seating for six in the salon. Along the starboard side is a full-length, credenza with a Corian top, that provides great storage capabilities, along with the additional storage space found beneath the port side settee. An entertainment center to the starboard aft corner of the credenza features audio-video equipment and a flat screen TV. There are two mounted book racks at the aft end of the credenza.
The galley is to port, just forward of the salon. A large U-shaped Corian counter top peninsula with a teak bullnose and overhead galley cabinets featuring flybridge dumbwaiter access. The galley features a trash compactor, 3-sink basin with disposal, 3-burner cooktop, and a convection microwave overhead. There are teak cabinets and a storage compartment just forward of the cooktop that houses a full range of pots and pans. To starboard is a dish storage compartment, additional drawers, a full-size refrigerator, and dishwasher.
Down five steps from the salon and through the companionway door is the central passage of the accommodations. The traditional layout has been a signature mainstay in the Fleming 55 providing easy and convenient flow of traffic throughout the boat. You appreciate the full length of the boat from the forepeak bulkhead to transom. There is a manual whale pump beneath the accommodation steps from the salon. In the passageway you'll find an office arrangement with overhead berth in the cabin to starboard. To port is a VIP stateroom with twin berth, and two additional berths overhead. Just forward of the starboard side cabin in the passageway is a Gibson Spacemaster washer / dryer, followed by a guest head. The ensuite master stateroom tops off the accommodations at the forward peak of the boat.
The master stateroom features a queen size 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 with gas-assisted struts to access a large storage cavity underneath, perfect for storing extra bed linens or keeping valuables out of sight. Overhead are two hatches which, along with port holes to each side, provide natural light to the cabin. To starboard is a flat-screen TV, wall-mounted, and access to the en suite master head is to port.
Both the master and guest heads are exceptionally spacious and feature shower stalls with teak flooring, mirrored vanities with sinks, and Corian countertops. A washer / dryer combo is hidden within the shower stall in the guest head.
The port stateroom features twin berths with an additional slide-out upper bunk to outboard and a Pullman berth to the inboard wall for a total of four berths in the stateroom. There is a hanging locker, dresser, nightstand, shelving above, and drawers beneath the berths for storage.
The starboard stateroom has a unique office arrangement with a large desk, and ample storage through drawers, shelving, and cabinets. Above the starboard stateroom desk, along the outboard wall is an overhead berth that can slide out when needed.
The pilothouse is three steps up from the salon and galley, and there are four steps up to the flybridge. Excellent visibility with forward and wrap-around port and starboard windows. There is a full panel of electronics and equipment. Overhead consoles provide additional space. Both AC and DC electrical panels are below the console to either side and can swing out providing access to connections. The chart area is to starboard with large drawers for maps, cruising guides, navigation instruments, binoculars, and other necessities. Sliding doors to port and starboard leading to the side Portuguese decks. Aft of the port door is a raised L-shaped settee and table with excellent visibility while underway. Aft of the starboard door is additional storage in a hanging locker with extra drawers. There is a Stidd helm chair and stainless-steel destroyer wheel.
Accessed from either steps in the pilothouse, or a ladder from the cockpit, this area features a 2-seat upper helm station located to port with excellent visibility particularly in close quarters and harbors with a 360-degree view. The electronics console houses an array of equipment with easy access to the rear of the console available by hinging open the bookshelf behind the pilothouse settee below. To starboard is a U-shaped settee and fixed fiberglass table with flip-table top. Aft of the helm to port is an additional settee and hatch for the galley dumbwaiter access. The aft boat deck features a davit to starboard and a hatch and step ladder to the cockpit is to port. The white Bimini top provides shade for the flybridge, a part forward enclosure, and the fiberglass radar arch supports the custom master, dome, and open array.
