Sarah Brooks is not available for the 2019 season. Many experienced boaters consider the Fleming 55 to be the ultimate cruising yacht of its size. The Fleming’s timeless design, meticulous engineering, and luxurious accommodations set the standard by which many other cruising yachts are judged. This three-stateroom yacht offers everything you could possibly want in a cruising motor yacht: comfort, safety, and luxury. Sarah Brooks’ spacious interior, with its beautiful appointments, including warm teak joinery work and Ultraleather settees, will provide you with the perfect space for enjoyment and relaxation. The covered wide side decks and the large aft cockpit make this the ideal NW cruising boat. Take advantage of Glendinning electronic controls at three stations, along with 480e Cummins engines and bow thruster—these all allow for sure-footed handling with an efficient cruise speed of 10-11 kts. This yacht is capable of higher speeds, allowing you to outrun bad weather, when needed. From her traditional lines down to the superb finish, Sarah Brooks will fulfill all your wishes for a great vacation.
