In the late 1920’s is when John Rybovich, Sr., opened a boatyard on the shore of Lake Worth in West Palm Beach, Florida. About twenty years later in 1947, John Rybovich built the first ever Rybovich sport fishing yacht, her name was, Miss Chevy II. He built this yacht with his sons Johnny, Tommy and Emil. This sport fishing yacht, Miss Chevy II, was the world’s first aluminum outrigger yacht and an early fighting chair, along with her fast and seaworthy hull. Later on, in the 1950’s, Rybovich began to use the cold-molding process to construct wooden hulls. After the death of son, Tommy Rybovich in 1972, the shipyard changed hands numerous times. A Florida businessman and sports team owner, Wayne Huizenga Jr., purchased the original shipyard of Rybovich Yachts in 2004 and converted it into a superyacht refit, service and repair shop. Emil Rybovich, his son Michael Rybovich, followed in his father’s footsteps and opened Michael Rybovich & Sons in the year 2010. Michael Rybovich & Sons constructed custom cold-molded wood sport fishing yacht as well as providing services for all yacht repairs and up-keeps. Later on, the name became known as solely Rybovich, where they offer a wide variety of services to this day, as well as serving brunch every Sunday!
