Our Dream

A Dream is Born

Mr. Adventure and I have been boating twenty of our twenty six years of marriage.  Neither of us grew up around water or boating. Steve started boating with friends and took a few sailing trips to the Bahamas  We started boating as a way of enjoying family time with our three daughters.  Our first boat was a Marquis.  The second boat was a Nautique Excel, followed by a Super Air Nautique.  All of the girls ski, wakeboard, knee board and tube. Mr. Adventure does all of those as well as ski barefoot.   We began attending boating shows in Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and Baltimore. It was at these boat shows that we learned about another type of boat--trawlers, and something called the Great Loop.

After many years of boat shows, we decided on a trawler to cruise the Great Loop.  More specifically we decided on the Fleming.  Fleming boats are designed by Tony Fleming.  After meeting the members of the Burr Yacht Sales team, we decided to purchase our Fleming from them.  Their commitment to training new owners and service were key to our decision.  After working with Burr for about two years, we discovered our boat.  She is a 1995, 55' Fleming Hull 45.  We have named her Meandering Joy.
