Description

“End Game” features all the elements required to fully experience and enjoy the amazing variety of lifestyle and cruising available on our coast – from dockside entertaining to remote cruising.

  • Comfortable hydronic heat system as well as reverse cycle air conditioning
  • Quiet machinery that is respectful in secluded anchorages and relaxing underway
  • Redundancy of systems for remote running with peace of mind
  • Self sufficiency for extended times away from docks:  extensive storage, long fuel range, robust electrical capacity, and an onboard water source, a laundry facility and a generous fridge and freezer
  • Heavy ground tackle and long chain rode for deep anchorages
  • Sure-footed handling in any seaway, with stabilized comfort
  • Versatility in a shore boat – for long provisioning runs, fishing, gunkholing around rocky headlands or beaching to take the family ashore
  • Big salon windows at seat back height to view the anchorage or seascape
  • A pilothouse with visibility - to watch keep for both floating debris, the magnificent scenery and of course, marine life - and an aft facing camera to complete the view
  • A yacht spacious enough for 16 for afternoon harbor trips,  6 for extended cruising, yet easily handled by 2, and set up for single handed operation
  • Great economy and range for long runs, and a turn of speed to run ahead of weather or traverse strong tidal currents
  • Outstanding outside space, inside comfort, and without excessive stairs to climb
  • A swim platform generous and safe, to access the water, clean fish, board dinghies, greet friends or swim in the warm waters of Desolation Sound or La Paz
  • Entertainment features that fill quiet evenings, enrich time at anchor, and are designed to include guests
  • Outfitted in all respects for safety, and including life raft, EPIRB & AIS

A hallmark of Fleming is the rich teak interior, including teak and holly sole. "End Game" features optional exterior teak deck cladding and additional teak paneling in the companionway and VIP Guest Cabin.  Note the special request brushed stainless hand pulls, Imtra satin SS light switch covers, bright SS light trim and even hidden SS scissor hinges throughout the vessel.

The vessel is air conditioned but also features a hydronic furnace system with zone temperature control in salon, pilothouse and each cabin.  The system is quiet, and provides the kind of heat that warms people and surfaces, rather than just the air around them.

All lighting is LED, including the navigation lights, interior lights, courtesy and accent lights, even the DC engine room lights. Where appropriate, the lights are on electronic dimmer switches.

Each area of the vessel has speakers - carefully selected for the size and shape of the space. The source of music can be controlled via iPad by the person enjoying that space. A system that engages, welcomes, invites guests to simply add their personal device to the mix, and share music. 

The soft furnishings were carefully upgraded by current owner to create separate, positive spaces and ensure a sense of style throughout the vessel - from the striped Sunbrella on the flybridge to the pillows and shams through the cabins, each space has its own character, its own bright and engaging style.

Throughout there are other convenience such as:

  • 3-Zone (cockpit, salon, flybridge)
  • SAT TV, VHF radio

Electrical

The Fleming Electrical system is known to be a robust design, remarkably friendly to use.

110VAC and AC220V and 24VDC panels, with circuit protection, are located in the pilothouse. Part of the AC panel is devoted to light loads which can be powered by the inverter. AC power is provided by shore connection, the 5KW and 17.5KW generators, and by the 3500W Outback inverter (a separate 3500W Inverter was installed dedicated to two elements of the HOB stovetop). 24VDC power is provided by AGM batteries as follows: a house bank comprised of 6 AGM batteries providing 600 amps @ 24VDC; engine start bank of 2 x 8D batteries (24VDC) for each engine.  The port start bank powers the port engine, the port genset, and the stern thruster.  The starboard start bank powers the starboard engine, the starboard genset and the bow thruster.

Note that the AC system includes isolation transformers with a Charles AC Auto Controller which automatically selects which AC power source the vessel is to use. There is one AC inlet at the bow, and one at the stern. One can plug in Fleming supplied custom shore power cables in a variety of configurations into dock outlets, depending on what service is available. The transformers will automatically step the power up to 220VAC, as required by the vessel.  An example might be having two 30amp outlets on the dock.  By plugging in two 30 amp shore cords, the converter will convert the power to that required by the vessel. This system is safe and reliable, and seemless in operation and ease of use.

The battery banks are charged through a battery Export that charges all banks evenly as the demand requires. The charge sources are: heavy duty alternators on the engines of 240amp 24V each when one or both engines are running, the charge side of the Outback inverter, when shore power or genset power is available. There is a back up 60 amp charger wired directly to the batteries in case on an issue with the inverter charger.  There is a 24V alternator on each genset.

Other Fleming electrical attributes:

  • Buell air horns
  • Meters at the panels to monitor voltage and amperage
  • Remote inverter panel at Pilothouse
  • AC and DC (LED) lights in the engine room
  • GFCI outlets in heads, galley and flybridge
