Remarks

Built at the historic Rybovich yard for the DuPont family as Kavarondo. She has had gracious owners throughout her life giving her several major refits keeping her in top condition over the years. 

The 37’s, including this one have travelled far and wide to the best fishing grounds the world has to offer capitalizing on those many opportunities. Known as the class of the fleet, little has changed with her timeless lines, classic signature Rybovich styling and old-world craftsmanship that established these iconic boats as great fishing machines.

She is available for viewing at our yard.
