Today Tony has turned over much of the everyday boatbuilding responsibilities to his management team, consisting of Adi Shard, Nicky Fleming and Duncan Cowie. This has allowed him to pursue his lifelong passion for videography and filmmaking. A number of his highly acclaimed cruising DVDs are available on this web site and provide an entertaining insight into the man, the boats he has built and the adventures he's had over his forty-year career.
Nicky Fleming was born in Hong Kong where her father, Tony Fleming was working for Grand Banks. She then moved to Singapore, as did Grand Banks and later to England for college. Nicky trained in cooking and worked in restaurants in England and later California.
This spot features LA’s up and coming covering the track “I Got a Thing.” Hanni is joined by childhood friend and drummer, Nicky Fleming-Yaryan. I love the action in the spot and how the track fits with it perfectly. Hanni is no stranger to kick ass covers, check out his version of Clarence Williams “You Rascal You” .
2000-2006 The popularity of the Fleming line continued to grow, and again customer demand led to the development of another new model, the Fleming 65. Launched in 2005, hull number one was spoken for by Tony himself, and he began to gradually turn over the day-to-day operation of Fleming Yachts to his management team which included his nephew, Adi Shard, his daughter, Nicky Fleming and his right-hand man, Duncan Cowie. Tony christened his new Fleming 65, VENTURE, and he embarked on an adventure which he has called a "voyage of personal discovery." By 2006, Fleming Yachts had delivered 170 Fleming 55s, 12 Fleming 75s and five 65s.
