Our Boat

After several years of research we chose a Fleming 55 on which to travel the seas.  Graceful lines, value, stability and layout are but a few of the features we like about the Fleming.  We named our Fleming Meandering Joy because we wanted to slowly travel the waterways and enjoy the ride.
