New Floating Dry Dock in South Florida

Sep 19, 2012 by Guest Writer

Last week, the Rybovich yacht yard in West Palm Beach, Florida, added a 3,000-ton floating dry dock to its service facilities, giving it the largest hauling capacity in South Florida.

The dry dock lets Rybovich haul in the deep waters of the Port of Palm Beach. Work can be done in the port or the dry dock can be transported to the yard.

The yard still plans to upgrade its nearby Riviera Beach yard with a 4,000-ton syncrolift, but the floating dry dock offers an interim solution until the company can dredge a channel from the Intracoastal Waterway to the yard.

Rybovich is displaying at the show for the first time this year, at Darse Nord QD15. For more details, visit
