Alexander Marine Australia is pleased to present the 2020 Fleming 58 'Malou' to the market.
'Malou' is hull number 28 of this successful model with exceptional presentation. With the delivery lead times on new boats stretching a few years, this is a rare opportunity to own a near new boat today.
Tony Fleming's vision has always been to build long-range luxury yachts for shorthanded cruising that were seaworthy for couples and families to comfortably liveaboard for 3-6 months at a time. 'Malou' is a fine illustration of this Fleming foresight.
As with all Fleming designs, 'Malou' is an easy yacht to admire. She instills confidence in her capability as a luxury cruiser with her high bow which rides comfortably over the sea and lovely lines from bow to stern. Once onboard, this beautiful vessel immediately makes you feel at home. The extraordinary craftsmanship is a brilliantly balanced blend of luxury and practicality, enticing you to stay for longer than you anticipated. Her sophisticated aesthetics are a distinct attraction, but this Fleming 58 offers so much more for the cruising enthusiast.
From the spacious swim platform, there is a deep step enabling easy access to the cockpit through the transom door. The large cockpit area is currently set up for casual dining with a high gloss teak table and chairs however it can easily be converted into a space used for fishing, diving or lounge area. The overhang from the flybridge offers a space that can be fully enclosed for all-weather entertaining and provide a safe and shaded outdoor area.
From the cockpit, two large sliding doors open up to the main saloon which asserts a timeless nautical feel. Surrounded by the warmth of the teak interior, this space can be used as a relaxed gathering area or for a more formal dining occasion. Here we witness that charming blend of practical luxuries with flawless teak finishes offset by cream ceiling lining and floor coverings, complemented by the natural light that floods through the large saloon windows.
At the forward end of the saloon port side, is her galley which will remind you of home with all of her creature comforts. The galley is equipped with a full-sized stand-up fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. She boasts plenty of bench space on either side of a double sink which is highlighted by a large window. This homely space invites any chef to work their magic comfortably underway or in port.
From the galley, steps lead up to one of the most popular areas on 'Malou', her pilothouse. This magnificent area has been designed with sensible comfort in mind. For the ship's Captain, they are gifted with superb visibility beyond the sturdy ocean-resistant windows on the bridge. The helms station is uncrowded yet decked out with large multifunction displays, CCTV monitoring on both port and starboard and the traditional Fleming wheel. There is room for traditional charts to be laid out and purpose-built storage for when they are not in use.
The comfortable and fully adjustable Stidd helm chairs are fitted with a set of controls on the armrest limiting the amount of time spent leaning forward, preserving comfort and avoiding strain on the captain's neck and back.
A modern feature on all Fleming helms stations is the Boning/Fleming Monitoring System which oversees all the vital signs of the boats engines and critical equipment. This sophisticated technology is usually only seen on mega yachts and commercial vessels. With the owner-operator in mind, Fleming knew this system could provide peace of mind with preloaded checklists and programmable early warning signals alerting any changes to the captain and decreasing time away from the bridge.
With the pilothouse being a popular gathering area while underway, a comfortable curved lounge and table have been positioned to port to keep the captain company. Blinds have been fitted to manage the afternoon sun. The pilothouse also features a day head to starboard.
Stepping out of the pilothouse on either the port or starboard side takes you onto her wide and impeccable teak decks. Positioned forward of the pilothouse is the Portuguese bridge, a design feature on dependable ocean-going cruisers to prevent green water from hitting the windows of the pilothouse. The Portuguese bridge is a lovely vantage point while underway or at anchor having sundowners. Forward of the Portuguese bridge is the anchor platform housing a dual windlass.
Following the sidedecks to stern, a portside staircase leads from the cockpit to the flybridge offering a clear view of the bow where a couple can pilot together on the double-wide starboard helm seat. Equipped with BBQ, fridge, top-loading freezer and sink this is a spectacular entertaining area with magnificent views from the U-shaped lounge shaded from the sun beneath the large bimini.
Also located aft of the flybridge there is a hydraulic 1,000lb Steelhead crane that can be easily operated singlehanded to launch the mothership's tender and other water toys.
'Malou' has well-appointed accommodation is accessed from adjacent the galley. The Master Cabin is complete with a Queen size island bed fitted with hinged gas lifts to reveal abundant storage space below. This area oozes style and comfort with the unblemished teak and cream combination extending into these living areas. The accompanying bathroom has a spacious shower with seat, marble surfaces on the large vanity, adorned with mirrors and natural light enhancing the space.
'Malou' offers additional two guest staterooms both fitted with single berths ideal for kids, grandchildren and friends. Each cabin shares a bathroom presented to the same high standard of the master suite. All of her accommodation gives the sense that you are on a much larger boat.
During the day the cabins are bathed in natural light and the portholes provide ample ventilation. When the sun goes down and the lights are turned on, they create a relaxed and cosy ambience that feels just like home.
Aesthetically, 'Malou' will impress anyone who steps aboard. Her current owners have cared for her in every way that preserves her youthful beauty. For the discerning cruiser, there is so much more. Fleming yachts are renown for being owner-operator vessels with so much of their value being in the finer details of precise design and manufacturing.
Guided by the expertise of highly regarded naval architects, Norman Wright & Sons in Brisbane, Australia, Fleming Yachts wanted to design a cruising vessel that bridged the gap between their infamous 55 and 65-foot boats. This was the inspiration behind 'Malou' and her 58-foot sisterships.
Side by side, the 55 and 58 models appear similar, sharing the same fundamental layout inside yet with skillful engineering, the 58-footer is discernibly larger. In fact, she is 30% larger, evident in all aspects of the vessel.
'Malou' carries 45% more fuel than her smaller 55ft sistership (5,488L v 3,785L). She is larger across the beam and carries an extra 10,000kg dry displacement weight (39,916kg v 30,754kg). All of these enhanced characteristics give the impression of being on a compact ship and have many more safety features than larger vessels.
The engine room layout has been carefully designed to ensure ease of access to essential systems. She is powered by twin MANi6-800hp engines. Twin Onan generators take care of your on-board power requirements when away from the dock. Hydraulic ABT-TRAC bow and stern thrusters are provided for ease of docking. 'Malou' is ABT-TRAC fin stabilized for comfort underway. She carries an impressive 5,489 litres of diesel for extended voyages and cruising.
