Officials to vote on Rybovich’s proposed megayacht yard

The Riviera Beach, Fla. city council is expected to vote next week on agreements with Viking Developers LLC and Rybovich Portside LLC that would launch a $59 million plan to rebuild the marina and surrounding property.

But the marina deal will not move ahead until the city gets approvals from the state Department of Environmental Protection, which would allow submerged lands at the marina to be used for a megayacht service yard proposed by Rybovich, The Palm Beach Post reports.

The city will also need approval from the county to use $5 million in waterfront access bond money for the plan.

As proposed, the Rybovich facility at Riviera Beach Marina would service yachts, generally 125 feet long and longer, that are too large or require too much water depth to be serviced at the company's West Palm Beach marina.
