The Fleming Yachts 58 is designed for long-distance cruising. She has all of the amenities needed for the intended purpose and is laid out on the helm deck so that a couple could handle her easily.To enhance efficiency over her 55’ sibling, the 58’s semi-displacement design and increased waterline length give the larger boat similar fuel consumption, but she has 50% more fuel capacity -- 1,450 gallons (5,499 L) -- to substantially extend the 58’s range to just under 1,200 nautical miles. She carries 320 gallons (1,211 L) of freshwater and 165 gallons (625 L) in the black water tank.She also has a wider 17’6” (5.33 m) beam that lets Fleming designers develop a full-beam master stateroom and a pilothouse that has space for a second helm seat and a day head.
Passengers can ascend to the Fleming 58’s flybridge from stairs in the cockpit or the pilothouse. The flybridge has a large horseshoe-shaped lounge around a table to starboard with a facing lounge across to port. The cushions are made of EZ Dri foam with Sunbrella upholstery and mesh backs for drainage. Forward and abaft the port lounge are the locations for the wet bar and optional grill and refrigerator. Forward to port is a doublewide Stidd helm seat that adjusts fore and aft. The upper helm has a 15” Boning color touchscreen, a Ritchie compass and space for electronics.
The flybridge helm includes controls for the twin 24-volt Maxwell RC 12 windlasses at the bow. Fleming calls the area where they’re mounted an Anchor Platform -- it’s definitely more than a pulpit. They haul a 100-lb. (45 kg) stainless steel Ultra anchor and 300’ (91 m) of 7/16” Acco galvanized chain rode. There’s a central hatch to the forepeak, and large lockers on each side contain fresh and raw-water washdowns. One of two on board connections for the 220-volt, 60Hz, 50-Amp shorepower is at the bow.
The Swim Platform.
Crewmembers can move aft safely on the Fleming 58’s passageways thanks to the raised bulwarks. The boat’s swim platform is integrated into the deck, and it has a centrally positioned stainless-steel boarding ladder that can be deployed from the water. A storage locker is beneath the step up to the cockpit, and there’s a hot and cold freshwater shower.
The Aft Deck.
A centrally positioned door in the transom opens the boat’s aft deck area. For those who prefer a simple approach, the Fleming 58’s large aft deck is wide open with teak decking. There are small steps aft with hinged hatches that open to reveal freshwater and saltwater showers. Forward on each side of the salon entry door are two molded consoles for storage, and to port is the flybridge ladder. There are four chocks and large, beefy cleats for securing docklines inside the cockpit, which is much safer for crew members.
Sliding glass doors provide access from the aft deck to the salon, and there’s easy flow from the aft lounge area all the way forward to the pilothouse. Fleming offers owners a couple of different layout options. In the standard configuration, the salon comes with an upholstered L-shaped settee to port around a hi-lo oval teak table and an aft bar with an icemaker. Cabinetry that contains an entertainment center runs the length of the starboard side. Remember this boat is intended for extended cruising and owners need plenty of storage.
Forward to port, the galley has a large aft counter (granite or Corian) for food preparation and serving. Outboard are two sinks with a gooseneck-style faucet, so the cook can fill a large pot. Forward, there’s a four-burner induction stove with pot racks, a convection/microwave oven and a 20.5-cu. ft. side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. There are slide-out bins for trash and storage in a variety of compartments, including pull-out pantry shelving and a spice rack. The boat comes with a waste disposal, and she’s wired for an optional dishwasher.
Fleming Yachts are known for having smooth flow from the aft deck to the pilothouse, and the 58 is a good example. A crewmember can walk to the helm unobstructed. From the pilothouse, there are stairways to the flybridge or to the accommodations deck. Abaft the helm seat, there’s a lounge that will seat two-to-three people around a table that swivels for easy access. An in-fill cushion provides a pilot berth on the port side, so captains can take turns sleeping during an overnight run. Available options in the pilothouse include a day head to starboard and an additional captain’s seat. Sliding doors access the port and starboard side decks, so a captain and a deckhand can pull into a slip and tie up easily.
The Lower Helm.
At the lower helm station, the captain runs the Fleming 58 from a Stidd 500 XL low back helm seat with chrome trim and Ultraleather upholstery. For old-school navigation, there’s a chart table to starboard. The engine instruments are displayed on a 15” color touchscreen with dedicated space for autopilot control. The Boning 15” color screen also displays the central monitoring system for all onboard systems and digital switching. The backlit Boning EOP engine start and stop panels have transponder keys, and the engine controls are Glendinning EEC 3 electronic units, with a backup system as standard. Steering is electro/hydraulic. Windshield wipers are heavy-duty models with intermittent controls and freshwater washdown. There are stairs down to the accommodations deck and up to flybridge front and center.
We think that most owners will go with the Optional Accommodation Layout B with the full-beam master stateroom. To get down there, the Fleming 58 has stairs from the pilothouse down to the cabin deck to starboard. The berth is on the centerline so the effects of vessel movement will be minimalized. Outboard to starboard, there’s a desk with a built-in vanity, and to port is storage. Because the boat is meant for extended cruising, Fleming gave the 58 plenty of storage capacity with a full walk-in closet, two hanging lockers, and two bookshelves. The master stateroom comes with a large flatscreen TV mounted up high on the entryway bulkhead.
In the standard layout, the Fleming 58 has the traditional master stateroom in the bow with a queen-sized berth on the centerline and two hanging lockers aft. There’s an overhead skylight with steps up to the berth on each side. When the master stateroom is in the bow, the head is to port with a sink, full walk-in shower, and toilet. When this cabin is for use by VIPs, the head is to starboard with the same basic amenities.
In the standard layout, guests on the Fleming 58 would sleep in two aft staterooms. The port side has two single berths with foam mattresses running fore to aft, walking space in between, and a hanging locker outboard. The starboard cabin has L-shaped berths with the upper bunk running fore to aft and the lower one running athwartships. The hanging locker in this cabin is a little bigger. The optional layout has the guest quarters to port with stacked bunks and a small hanging locker.
Fleming lists minimum headroom at 6’6 12” (2.0 m) throughout the below decks area, so most guests should feel comfortable taking a shower on the boat. In the standard layout with the master stateroom in the bow, the head is en suite to port, and the occupants of the two guest cabins share the day head forward to starboard. With the full-beam master stateroom, the private head is to port, and the bow and port cabins share the facilities that are forward to starboard. Fleming uses Hans-Grohe faucets, Planus toilets and walk-in showers with glass doors framed in stainless steel trim. There are air conditioning ducts and GFCI electrical outlets in each head as well.
Clothes get dirty during a long cruise, so a stacked washer and dryer come standard on the Fleming 58. In the conventional layout with the master stateroom in the bow, there’s a linen locker across from the laundry in the passageway.
Walk-In Engine Room.
Access to the Fleming 58’s engine compartment is provided through a large hatch in the aft deck sole. The area has stand-up headroom, and there’s space outboard of each engine for a technician to work. The bow thruster is a Sidepower SP240TC 15.5-hp. Raw water strainers are Groco and Fleming uses Racor fuel filters, 75/1000 Max for the engines and a 500MA for the generator.
Abaft the engines, the lazarette houses the Hypro electro/hydraulic power pack for the primary and backup steering and gear for the steering system. The 320-gallon (1,211 L) polyethylene water tanks are also in this area.
AC Electrical Systems.
On the AC side, the Fleming Yachts 58 comes with a 220-volt, 17 kW Onan eQD generator, a 3,500-watt, 110-volt, 60Hz pure sine wave Outback inverter, two 50-Amp Charles Isolation Boosting transformers, and an inverter remote control with bypass system. There are 220-volt, 50-Amp shorepower inlets fore and aft and AC outlets throughout.
DC Electrical Systems.
For DC power, the main ship’s system has three isolated 24-volt Lifeline AGM battery banks with a Mastervolt 30-Amp Chargemaster charging system. Two 24-volt DC converters and a battery backup system are on the flybridge. Battery power levels are displayed on a remote panel in the pilothouse.
Total freshwater capacity is 320 gallons (1,211 L), and the twin tanks have sight glasses. Water is pumped through two 24-volt DC Gianneschi pumps and heated by a 20-gallon (75-L) Torrid water heater with 220-volt AC heating element and heat exchanger coil. Freshwater faucets fabricated from 316 L stainless steel are on the flybridge and foredeck and in the cockpit.
Fleming Yachts builds the 58 with a solid fiberglass bottom reinforced with an interlocking matrix of frames and box-section stringers. They provide strength and impact resistance that exceed European A Ocean class ratings, according to Fleming. Additional reinforcement is built into the stern, the chines, around the stabilizers, the keel, and in the bow ahead of the collision bulkhead. Vinylester resin is used and five coats of epoxy are applied over the gelcoat below the waterline to protect against blistering. The full-length keel extends below the running gear to provide directional stability, and it has a stainless-steel shoe to protect in an unintentional grounding. In the superstructure, Corecell foam is used for strength and weight savings.
The Fleming Yachts 58 comes standard with twin MAN i6 800HP Common rail diesels and Cummins QSC 8.3 500HP engines are available options. The engines put their power to the water through a Seatorque Bolt on Shaft System (BOSS) with recessed I-bracket struts. The Seatorque system transfers the torque from the engines to the hull, which reduces vibrations. The shafts also run inside oil-filled tubes, eliminating the need for stuffing box and cutlass bearings.
We haven’t tested the Fleming Yachts 58, but the manufacturer provided us with some baseline numbers with the MAN 800-hp engines and ZF360A transmissions. At 9 knots, the fuel burn is 11 gph, giving her a range of approximately 1,186 nautical miles. High cruise is estimated at 17 knots and maximum speed is 20 knots.

General warranty is one year from the date of delivery. Hull structural warranty including blistering is five years.
Since the Fleming Yachts 58 was introduced in 2012, the manufacturer is now on Hull #21. We could envision a couple retiring and living aboard a boat like this, summering off the Downeast coast of Maine and heading down the Intracoastal during the winter months.
