Default The last 37' Rybovich ever built

A 1965 hull. Awfully pretty and it's for sale, if you are looking for a last minute gift.

Notice the gauge panel - there is a single tachometer with two needles - one red and one green (port and starboard). Rybo doesn't do it anymore, but I have always liked that setup

Just plain Sweet! A true classic. Who ever buys that boat needs to be schooled in the skills of keeping a boat of that caliber in Palm Beach condition. Assuming he doesn't already know how.

That's my fear of owning a boat like that. It's soooooo much work to keep it looking that good.

Amazing boat. I wish Rybo and Merritt would still build those 37-45 ft. Sportfish.

I freakin love that boat, I check it out on yachtworld daily. My buddy owns a 1960 44 and is constantly spending money on the maintenance...just the nature of the beast. It would make someone a very nice showpiece and a hell of a fishin machine.

One of the best looking boats I have ever seen! One day I hope to step up to that class of boat.

I'm pretty sure that the kind of person who will buy that boat already graduated from that school, and probably has at least a Master's degree.....

Beutiful boat, half the enjoyment of owning that would be keeping in in the "proper" shape. Apparently the current owner agrees....

It just doesn't get any better than that. I agree, old style, new electronics, just looks incredible.

Wow, that's one sweet boat.

I've often wondered why boats like that aren't built anymore.

I realize the costs are higher than a typical Clorox bottle production boat but there's a reason that this boat looks so good after 42 years.

The vessel is cared for because it brings pleasure to the owners. As someone stated there are owners of boats similar to this that enjoy keeping the boat in such pristine shape. There are some that like spending time puttering around an old boat. I can be very relaxing and rewarding.

Yachtworld states ***NOT FOR SALE TO US RESIDENTS WHILE IN US WATERS*** .

Why is that?

It has something to do with the taxes, the boat will be moved to the bahamas, closed sale and then back to US, something like that. I am sure a broker can explain better.

Default the last 37' Rybovich: Uncle Jack

After years of following this boat, from owner to owner, since I first learned of her via this post, she'll be christened this summer in Beach Haven, NJ after the man that taught me so much about life and about fishing the blue water of The Stream: Uncle Jack.
