Taken mostly from the Fleming website: The Fleming 55 is a proven raised pilothouse motoryacht designed for serious long range cruising. First introduced in 1986, since that time the Fleming 55 has benefited from a rigorous program of evolution with literally hundreds of improvements made over the years, 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. The Flemings deep keel provides protection for the running gear and stability in following seas. Because noise and vibration contribute to fatigue Fleming engineers paid special attention to producing a yacht known for its quiet, smooth ride. Fundamental to this achievement is the use of Seatorque anti-vibration drive systems. The Fleming 55 has a range of 2,000 nautical miles at 8 knots with Cummins QSC 500hp common rail engines. Top speed is 1618 knots. At 10 knots the fuel burn is just over 10 gallons per hour impressive for a yacht this size. Over 240 Fleming 55s have been built making it one of the most successful production yachts in history.
