Full Restoration of 1954 Rybovich 28 Completed 2018

HINA – Definition from Urban Dictionary: A really awesome, beautiful woman who makes your heart skip a beat when you hear her voice. How appropriate; HINA is certainly beautiful and the sound of her twin Crusader Captain’s Choice V8s will go right to the heart of any “motor head” or sport boat enthusiast. Rybovich yachts are known as the Stradivarius of sport fishing yachts and this brilliantly restored Palm Beach icon has been plying the waters of South Florida for 66 years now. She was christened “Hina” in 1954 and has been turning heads wherever she went under a series of names through the years: First Hina, then Sea Urchin IV, Frantic, Miss Skeet-O, Frivolous, Gretchen Ann, Miss Alice, Coconut, Southern, Bolero and now, once again, Hina. A real piece of Palm Beach history.

While currently configured as a fully functional, comfortable and a very useable express boat with Murray Brothers teak chairs, table and step box, it also includes outriggers and a Rybovich fighting chair to turn it into a fishing machine! Additionally, included is a slant-back canvas cockpit cover with clear sides. HINA is one of only two of this type Rybovich remaining in existence. She is currently stored indoors on a trailer.

HINA is in Showroom Condition and a Collector’s Trophy at the new reduced price of $155K. Call for additional details.
