Fleming Yachts  has published the first edition of a company-sponsored magazine featuring the brand’s yachts, cruising articles and technical stories.  The Fall/Winter edition of Venturer is available online at the Fleming website.  Readers familiar with Nordhavn’s Circumnavigator magazine will find Venturer an opportunity to get the same kind of detailed product and “real world” use information.

The first edition includes stories of company founder Tony Fleming’s “Down East” circumnavigation, which took him and his Fleming 65 up the Hudson River to the Erie Canal to the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River and Seaway and down the northeast coast.  There is a detailed article on fuel system design from contributor Steve D’Antonio, technical specialist familiar to readers of Passagemaker magazine.

Fleming currently offers three models — the 55, 65 and 75.  They are all twin-engine, semi-displacement boats designed to cruise most efficiently, according to Fleming, at 9-10 knots, but also capable of cruising at up to 18 knots.  The hulls feature a sharp entry with flatter sections and hard chines aft for lift at speed and less roll at anchor than a round-bilge, full-displacement hull.

The boats are all relatively low-profile, full pilothouse designs intended to take a couple on long-distance cruises.
