Fleming 78  

"Virtually fault free, eerily quiet, exceptionally engineered and boasting amazing attention to detail, the Fleming 75 is quite clearly the product of an obsessive design team."
- Motorboat and Yachting

Building on the success of the well-established Fleming 55, Fleming Yachts introduced the magnificent Fleming 75 in 2000. Ten years later the Fleming 75 was redesigned with a longer hull, longer keel and bulbous bow to become the new Fleming 78. The added waterline length and bulbous bow reduce fuel consumption and increase range by 500 NM. The yacht has the same elegant but no-nonsense design philosophy as her smaller sisters, but her larger size permits her to travel further and provide her guests and crew with even more luxurious accommodations. She has three staterooms all en-suite with a separate crews quarters aft. Standard power is twin MAN V12-1550hp engines, and MAN V8-1000hp, and MAN V8-1200hp engines are optional. She has a range of 2,500 miles at 10 knots and, with the larger engines, can achieve speeds in excess of 20 knots. Like the Fleming 55 and 65, she is equipped as standard with Aquadrive vibration isolation systems, but of course these are much larger. She has twin 32KW Onan generators, centralized hydraulic system driving American Bowthruster stabilizers, bow thruster and twin Maxwell windlasses. A custom central monitoring system with three 15" color touchscreens displays all onboard systems, including tank levels, bilge and fire alarms as well as a fully controllable CCTV system.

This 80-ton yacht has been built to qualify for European CE certification for Ocean Class, and she presents the ultimate balance of rugged construction, engineering excellence and artful elegance. Fleming Yachts are the "Ultimate Cruising Yacht," and the Fleming 78 is the ultimate Fleming.

AFTERWORD

The question most manufacturers ask themselves when considering a new feature is whether it is necessary to include it in order to sell the boat. In the case of the Fleming, we ask only whether its inclusion will make the boat safer, better or more convenient. That is why we have introduced literally hundreds or refinements since we started construction in 1985 and why we continue the process today.

For that reason Fleming Yachts reserves the right to make changes to specifications and equipment without notice.
