      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.
