    Fleming 55

    Hi Guys,
    Any thoughts or comments on the trans ocean capabilities of the Fleming 55? While most currently exceed my budget, some of the older boats are getting closer to what I can afford.

    I've researched the net, these boats appear to have a great following, some good indications of long passage making.

    As per my previous posts, I much prefer twin engines. At low displacement speed (say around 7 knots), it appears a 55 should mange +2500NM conditions depending.

    But, the 55 is a semi displacement hull, all be it a fairly deep draft, perhaps one that has rough sea capability. Far as I read, these boats have a EU class A rating.

    Tony Fleming carries a good reputation from what I've read.
