Rybovich is already an established name in the South Florida marine industry, but the recent acquisition of a 3000 ton floating dry dock expands both their hauling capacity and their refit capabilities. Combined with their existing 150 and 660 ton Travelifts, the floating dry dock makes Rybovich the facility with the largest hauling capacity in South Florida. “This is a significant development for Rybovich, but also for the South Florida marine industry and the local economy” said Rybovich President, Wayne Huizenga Jr. “We can now offer comprehensive solutions to superyachts that, until now, have only been able to be serviced in the water” he continued.
In addition to the new 300 ton dry dock, Rybovich is trying to build a superyacht service and refit facility with a 4000 ton syncrolift at their Riviera Beach location. Until this project if finalized and Rybovich can dredge a deeper channel between the Intracoastal and their Riveria Beach facility, the floating drydock allows the yard to haul and launch in the deep waters of the Port of Palm Beach. Once loaded, work can be performed at the Port or the dock can be transported to the Rybovich facility in West Palm Beach.
Wayne Jr. says, “The ability to haul and service larger vessels will attract more Superyachts to the United States and ultimately grow the number of yachts cruising and spending time in the U.S. The added demand for goods & services will make a significant economic impact right here in America, creating new opportunities for employment and prosperity.”
