A truly exceptional example of the Rybovich day boat, the company that invented the modern day sportfisherman. This classic has been fully restored including new Cat diesels in 2005. This 1961, 37-ft offers the same day boat style that the traditionalist demand.

Captain Jason Brice
This 38-ft Stolper 380 Tournament Express custom built in ’98 out of Stuart, Florida. She is the essence of a no-compromise fishing machine!!!

Cruising at 25 kts with comfortable bench seating for up to six, the Spindrift’s raised bridge deck gives anglers an excellent and unobstructed view of the baits. Below deck you will find a well appointed fully air conditioned cabin with ample space to lay down on the way back into port from your action packed fishing day.
Captain Nicho Alvarenga
A 37-ft Merritt built in 1961 by Buddy Merritt himself. He called the 37 “The Perfect Fishing Boat” and built her with one purpose in mind…to raise and catch fish. Since hull number 8 was launched she was kept as a private yacht in Stuart, Florida.
In 1999, she was meticulously restored and repowered with twin 450 hp Cummins Diesels giving her a 24 knot cruising speed.
Hosting up to five anglers, Release is the Queen of the fleet. Set up in the classic day boat style, that means plenty of comfortable seating in the shade but not out of the action. Forward of the salon and below are the head and galley where our mates prepare delicious snacks and hot lunches. Release’s open teak cockpit and clean wake make her truly a “World Class” fishing machine. Her ability to back down at high speeds and spin on a dime make catching doubles, triples and quads seem easy. The combination of it all makes her the ultimate fly fishing boat! On March 11, 2006 the Release set the new one day record for sailfish caught fly fishing – 57.
Captain Chico Alvarenga
