1983 Rybovich 55 Convertible Sportfish

“Lucky” is Rybovich hull # 84 built as the “Marlynn”. In recent years she has undergone two major refits; the receipts for which total well above her asking price. Most recently, a full paint job was completed 6/2022. All work was done by Michael Rybovich. She is in extraordinary cosmetic condition and the 1,000 hour engine service was recently completed at 930 hours. Tuna Tower was new in 2016. She is that turn key opportunity that seldom surfaces on the market.
