Now in the design phase from Michael Rybovich & Sons in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, is Hull No. 9, a stunning 70-foot sport-fisherman designed and crafted to chase blue marlin every day of the year in comfort and style for a family operation. The extended cockpit will have ample room for anglers and crew to operate, whether fishing light tackle on stand-up or heavy gear from the chair.

The interior cabinetry is crafted of satin-finished teak and will feature a full-beam master stateroom forward as well as three additional staterooms, ­including an aft VIP with a queen bed. This stateroom will also be equipped with an oversize tackle storage locker to keep things out of the way but easily accessible at a moment’s notice.

The engine room will be home to a pair of 29 kW Onan ­generators and a pair of Caterpillar C32B 12-cylinder engines rated at 2,000 hp; each will give the boat an optimal balance of range and performance. Delivery is slated for mid-2024.
