ICW dredging by Rybovich to begin

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued the permits necessary to dredge about 3,500 linear feet of the Intracoastal Waterway in northern Palm Beach County to make way for larger vessels along Riviera Beach’s waterfront.

The dredging will happen in the channel west of Peanut Island from the area near the Port of Palm Beach to Rybovich’s Marine Center at 2010 Avenue B just south of the Blue Heron Boulevard bridge.

Rybovich CEO Wayne Huizenga Jr. said his business has been limited in the size of vessel it can accept because of the shallow depths of the ICW. The dredging will facilitate a planned expansion of the Riviera Beach yard that will allow Rybovich to service yachts up to 330 feet.

“Rybovich is an international destination for megayachts from around the world and we welcome the opportunity to expand our current operations into Riviera Beach,” he said.

The Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) will oversee the dredging. Contractors working for FIND will remove about 95,000 cubic yards of dredge material to lower the bottom of the channel to about 15 feet below the mean low water line, according to the permits. The dredged material will be deposited at Peanut Island.

FIND Executive Director Mark Crosley said he hoped to have the dredging done within a year.
