Rybovich, municipality work on megayacht marina

Riviera Beach, Fla., officials are working with Viking Developers and Rybovich Boat Co. on a scaled-down plan for revamping the city's marina.

The plan would include leasing the south end of the marina to Rybovich for a megayacht service yard, according to an article in The Palm Beach Post.

Negotiations between the boat companies, the city and the city's community redevelopment agency has been ongoing for more than two months, and questions remain about how submerged lands dedicated for public and recreational uses can be converted to make way for the yacht repair yard.

Opponents note that storing big yachts for service on the south side would remove about 40 boat slips for public use. The submerged lands for the marina are to be used for "municipal park and recreational purposes only" according to the state.
