When we moved to our Palm Beach Gardens, FL location in 2011 and became Michael Rybovich & Sons Boat Works, we started numbering our hulls back at #1. While our family business has built over 100 hulls, we felt it was only right to start fresh. A new yard and new hull numbers, but the same dedication to our craft, our customers, and our crew.
The third boat to come out of our new yard, Lady Rebecca is the perfect combination of efficiency, fishability and comfort. Her twin Caterpillar 1925hp C32 ACERT’s provide an amazing balance of speed and efficiency, allowing her 2,000 gallon fuel capacity to take her wherever her owner chooses. Our only boat ever built with a black walnut interior (as chosen and cut from the owner’s farm in Pennsylavania), she will always stand out. She is equipped with all of the modern technology expected of a high performance sportfishing boat, including a SeaKeeper, and her three stateroom layout leaves ample room for exploring.
Our largest boat built to date when launched in 2015 and the second Rybovich named Persistence, she is regarded as one of the most beautifully and technologically advanced long range sportfishing boats ever built. Built to fish around the world with the comfort of a megayacht and the speed of today’s high performance boats, Persistence fishes like a small sportfish but holds all of the comforts expected of a boat much larger. Equipped with four staterooms and separate crew’s quarters, each with its own en suite head, her bookmatched golden teak interior immediately turns heads. Powered by two MTU 16V2000M94’s rated at 2600hp each, she effortlessly reaches over 45 knots and comfortably cruises at 35 knots.
Launched in 2012, Lizzy Bee is the first custom sportfishing boat to come out of our new yard on the intracoastal waterway in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Powered by two 900hp Volvo Penta IPS1200 pod drives, she is as maneuverable as she is efficient, and burns 47 gph at a cruise speed of 26 knots - 87.5 gph at a top speed of 39.5 knots. Built for serious fishing, her large cockpit and walkaround design allow for 360 degree fishing for multiple anglers. Her four stateroom layout leaves ample room for relaxing and/or entertaining in the midship salon, and a full-beam master includes a private head, settee, and vanity for owner comfort on long trips. A composite superstructure and extensive carbon fiber elements were used during construction, adhering to our commitment to unmatched performance as well as uncompromising quality and style.
