Fleming 36 Timber cruiser "Bay Belle"
Another excellent example of the craftsmanship of master boat builder Fred Fleming. Renown for superior construction and materials, very few are offered for sale, even less at this size of 36 feet LOA. Bay Belle is a purpose built recreational cruiser, with a sedan layout (no flybridge), rear cockpit, walk around side decks, raised forward bridgedeck, with mast and steadying sails that provide a boom crane to store the tender on the rooftop.
All Flemings are robustly built, Bay Belle of Spotted Gum inch and a quarter hardwood planks with substantial frames. The deck and superstructure is glassed over. She has very pleasing lines like all Flemings and an easily driven sea worthy hull.
Bay Belle was originally fitted with a Ford diesel but in recent times has been professionally re-powered with a John Deere 4 cylinder 150 hp diesel which provides excellent reliability and economy. The new engine has done just 113 hours.
The vessel has a generous cockpit with central eutectic freezer, large saloon with full galley and panoramic windows and on the lower level a sleeping cabin and bathroom. The tender is roof stored and is a fibreglass bottom RIB.
Bay Belle is a robustly built coastal or bay cruiser that will give her new owners many years of reliable service.
