    Had a meeting at Rybovich today and the distinct smell of fresh baked bread was permeating the yard. Much to my surprise, Rybovich has something in the oven. Get a loaf of this classic motorcruiser... "Bread". An unnamed source indicates the owner is a large bread baker, probably for a nationwide chain. We don't care how you made your dough, Mr. Owner, but we're darn glad to see the proceeds going to a great cause! Step aside Sycara IV... here's a classic feast of retro yeast!

    Nice. I watched her getting built at Rolly Marine a few years back. Funny part is that when she was nearly done, the owner wanted her a bit longer so they cut it in the middle and stretched it. Scary to say the least! I'm told the owner of the vessel owns the largest bakeries in north america. The vessel it stunning in person and even more impressive when you see the nearly flawless flag blue finish.

    Thanks for the pictures Carl. She's a real beauty. Once she's complete, one of your reviews would be great, assuming her owner is agreeable to it.

    Bread is a beauty, but as you, I was also expecting a big sporty!

    She's beautiful, but I think Sycara IV still takes the Cake!

    It certainly has some unique proportions which may have been accentuated by lengthening, as Shazam indicated. Sycara IV had a bridge clearance mandate, which kept her profile constrained. Still, Bread looks half baked, like something's missing. My guess is the tender will complete the picture.

    The little house on the top deck towards the rear is what's making her look out of place. The proper canvas or burlap top on the rear of the aft deck on the upper level that looks period, with the proper period type supports as well as period tenders in the middle of the top deck would make her look more balanced. I'm not keen on the masts. The problem with both Bread and Sycara IV is the color. White was the only color on those old yachts they're trying to replicate.......

    I think sycara IV looks very nice and flows very well. I agree that bread looks a little half baked.

    Bread

    completely stripped down to bare metal before the vessel was cut and a 30 foot section added at Rolly.

    All new electrical, plumbing, machinery, interior and exterior plus a full paint job.

    Look closely at that funnel, the aft section swings open and a hydraulic knuckle crane is installed vertically and is ready to use for the boats to be installed forward of that aft deck house. The hot tub is aft of the aft deck house. :p

    Was able to get on Bread during FLIBS and had a quick tour. Beautiful interior highlighted by detailed wood finish, gold fixtures, huge crew quarters and cavernous staterooms. Able to get some interior photos but had to shoot quickly so not the best work but it gives an idea.

    I love classic boats, and this one completely misses the mark: The house extends too far forward, the funnel is too far forward, the mast heights are wrong, the layout makes no sense with the galley aft, and the stern looks heavy. There was a germ of a good idea, the varnish and paint are pretty, but it was probably a waste of varnish, as well as quite a lot of money.
    Best,

    I feel the same way, whereas Sacarya iv and Burger seemed to nail it.

    I was on this vessel when she first arrived in Fl. She was built at the Kanter yard as a dinner cruiser but the boat was not finished when the owner brought her south and put her up for sale. My imagination wasn't big enough because I never envisioned her empty shell interior looking as grand as she turned out. This boat was never intended to be a great classic but was originally designed by Bob Johnston to be a commercial dine and whine.
