I look at the low profile of a Fleming and it concerns me, but then seeing what they handle and how, I think much differently. With a Hatteras (or a Nordhavn, for that matter) you sure do feel like you've got a lot more boat around you.
Having some good sea time on both, the Fleiming is a noticeably better "sea boat" than my Hatt was; low CG and narrow is good for that purpose. But where if failed completely for us was as a sole residence. Which, I should add, was also a failure for almost every pre- 2012 Nordhavn we've been on, from 40 through original 62. Haven't been on anything produced since.
