Introduction

Tony Fleming once confided that he had our waters in mind when he conceived the Fleming design. And since the initial launch in 1986 as the Serious Cruising Yacht, the reputation has grown world wide as the finest cruising yacht in her class. The model maintains her traditional lines today, and has evolved through continual refinement by a builder whose mission statement is to constantly extend the firm’s collective knowledge and with each hull, “build the best boat we know how”, always striving towards the Ultimate Cruising Yacht. 

This is the perfect opportunity to acquire such a vessel. This beautiful Fleming 55 Pilothouse is turnkey with up to date service, and requires only a new owner for her next voyage. She has been outfitted to enable comfortable, extended cruising or live-aboard. 

Elements of Patricia Ann

The low profile, pilothouse design is widely accepted as the most attractive timeless classics in the yachting world. 

The Fleming 55 is a three-stateroom / two head yacht with a broad cockpit, an inviting salon, a refreshingly large and functional galley, a separate pilothouse, and a flybridge with direct access.

Patricia Ann has been lightly cruised and professionally cared for.

Accommodations

The companionway leads down from the salon and galley area directly to the accommodations area. This purposeful design allows for a lower centre of gravity, and eliminates the need for guests to transmit the pilothouse to access the staterooms and heads. The master cabin is forward, with a VIP cabin to port and a guest bunk cabin to starboard. There is an ensuite head to the master cabin, and the two guest cabins share a second head. This arrangement also gives day guests access to the head without the need to enter a sleeping cabin, keeping those areas private. The area features:

  • Combo washer and dryer
  • Teak handrail on port side of passage, with specially curved ends
  • Curve in handrail at either end of stairs

Master Cabin

Forward is the master cabin featuring the centre line queen berth, extensive lockers and drawers, and a generous ensuite head with shower stall. The builder made changes to the lockers beside the berth to ease access and upgraded the finish below the lockers to teak. The upper areas are trimmed in teak to enrich the cabin. A bookshelf is fitted around the hull, port and starboard. Other features include:

  • Custom spring mattress

Note that the engine start banks also service the thrusters, one bank to each thruster. 

Note also that the AC system includes isolation transformers. There is one AC inlet at the bow, and one at the stern.

The battery charge sources are:  Heavy duty alternators on the engines of 240 Amp 24V each when one or both engines are running, the charge side of the inverter, being 140 Amps when shore power or genset power is available. There is an alternator on the genset to charge the genset start battery.
