With an insider's perspective, Pat Rybovich, daughter of yacht designer Tommy Rybovich, has written a book about the builders' 90-year history.
The Rybovich story begins in 1947 when the three Rybovich brothers launched their first boat and Rybovich Hull No. 1 would help spark today's multibillion-dollar sportfishing industry.
The book is a limited-edition volume featuring hundreds of photographs, original blueprints, memorabilia and unpublished photos from the boatyard's archives and the family of vintage Rybovich owners. The book showcases the original 79 boats built by the brothers and culminates with the latest creations of her cousin, Michael Rybovich, who continues the legacy today.
"Rybovich" is offered exclusively at the Rybovich book Web site, and a percentage of book sales will go to marine conservation.
