On the 25th anniversary of the founding of the company, Fleming Yachts are proud to announce the introduction of the all-new Fleming 58.
After extensive research and input from existing Fleming owners, we identified the need for a boat to bridge the gap between the 55 and the 65. While retaining the Fleming classic lines, the 58 is an entirely new boat designed from the keel up. The naval architects selected to assist the in-house Fleming design team were Norman Wright and Sons in Brisbane, Australia who, with their special expertise in hull design and tank testing, have been designing semi-displacement passagemakers for more than 100 years.
The latest 3D modeling and CAD software were employed during the design process and a 1/12 scale model was built and tank tested at the Australian Maritime College in Tasmania. Several load conditions were simulated at varying speeds to determine resistance, trim and other performance parameters. These included the elects of adding a bulbous bow which is being offered as an option.

Easy Boarding is retained through the wide side deck boarding gates. Port and starboard gates through the Portuguese Bridge lead to the foredeck.
Large Access Hatch into the engine room is just aft of the salon doors.
More Space The wider pilothouse, has space for twin Stidd helm seats.
The 58 Employs much of the same technology used in the Fleming 65 including the Boning ship monitoring system with two 15" color touchscreens, Hypro fly-by-wire precision power steering, and Sea Torque's enclosed shaft system.
Placement of air-conditioning compressors and watermaker are all located in the expanded engine room - leaving the lazarette clear for storage.
Significantly More Headroom in the engine room and more space forward and outboard of the engines. Shown with optional MAN R6-800 engines.
The Fleming 58 provides an ideal intermediate size between the existing F55 and F65, and is easily operated by a couple.
The Cockpit is capacious - larger than the Fleming 55 by 25 sq. ft. (2.3 sq. meters). The built-in cabinets either side of the salon aft doors provide for a variety of options including a fridge/freezer, sink, and an aft control station
Two Inward Opening Gates on either side of the Fleming 58 make boarding easy and safe.

The Convenienceof a Day-Head.
Lockers on either side of the anchor platform and storage bins in the cabin trunk provide stowage for lines and fenders.
Standard Power is a pair of Cummins QSC 500 engines, optional MAN 800 HP engines are also offered. Standard equipment is the very effcient Sea Torque shaft system which transfers thrust from the propellers directly to the hull structure and eliminates the need for cutless bearings and stuffing boxes.
The Tank Tested semi-displacement hull is a modern design based on the well proven Fleming 55. A fine entry and generous flare on the bow makes for an efficient, comfortable, and safe ride.
Spacious walk-in engine room - with access to all equipment and systems.
New Layout - The Fleming 58 offers a variety of accommodation layouts, including a full beam, master cabin with access from the pilothouse.
The Fleming 58 will of course be built at the renowned Tung Hwa yard in Southern Taiwan, where every Fleming ever built has been constructed, starting with Fleming 50 hull 001 in 1985. Tung Hwa build exclusively for Fleming and many craftsmen from the early days are still with us. They are very proud of their work and their experience, passion and skill are passed down from one generation to the next.
