Splash Report: 78’ Michael Rybovich and Sons Persistence

Running shot of 78 Rybovich Persistence
The latest build from Michael Rybovich and Sons Persistence is another masterpiece from the first family in custom sportfishing boats. She is state-of-the-art in every way and as you step aboard you cant help but notice the highest quality fit and finish found only on a Rybovich. The four-stateroom layout and quarter sawn teak throughout can only be described as beautiful. Every cabinet, seam and joinery is as close to perfection as you can build. The Persistence is a meticulously hand-crafted fishing machine. As the current Captain, Tyler Andresen explains, from the bilge to the helm, everything is done with the utmost attention to detail. Persistence is by far one of the nicest boats Ive ever run. When it comes to operating her she maintains any set speed with zero deviation, regardless of the sea conditions. Short chop or a big nasty swell, you just push her bow down and you get that soft dig through the waves without any chine pounding whatsoever. Persistence is equipped with the latest and greatest equipment and at the heart of her soul is a pair of the MTU M96L 2600 hp power package. She clips 50 knots on the pins. The Persistence will split her time based out of Florida in the winter and then chasing tuna in the Northeast during the summer and fall.
