Fleming 53  

A stunning example of the Fleming 53 Pilothouse Motoryacht from 1991 with the perfectly matched Caterpillar 3208 NA diesel engines giving a cruising speed of 9 knots and maximum speed of 12 knots, with outstanding fuel efficiency. This vessel has undergone a programme of refurbishment and updating over the past 5 years and is presented in superb condition. She has the desirable two cabin layout which provides a much larger master stateroom with vanity desk, large guest port cabin and huge storage room ideal for extended cruising for a couple with guests which is exactly what this boat was designed for. The condition of this yacht is fantastic for her years and with the work undertaken means she really is a turn key classic. Not to be missed!

Hull

The hull has been stripped back to original gelcoat, inspected and preventatively coated with 6 coats of epoxy before 3 coats of antifoul, newly painted bootstripe, newly fitted anodes and hull sides polished and 4 coats of wax, all applied in 2013. It has then been annually lifted re antifouled and the hull waxed annually since meaning it is in exceptional condition. The superstructure is waxed 4 times a year!!
