S/F TWENTY, launched in 1955, was commissioned by Carl Badenhausen of Ballentine Brewing. The decision to commission this magnificent vessel came about partly due to the influence of Ernest Hemingway, who advised Peter that owning a Rybovich would elevate his sportfishing experience to a whole new level of style and class.
The brilliant minds behind its design were Johnny & Tommy Rybovich, who incorporated their newly developed ‘broken sheer’ Rybovich signature style into the hull. Crafted from exquisite mahogany, TWENTY is the 20th hull of its kind.

After a beautiful refit in Japan, this plank on frame sportfisher is now up for ownership. The engines, generator, and interior furnishings have been meticulously replaced, ensuring that the vessel is in impeccable condition. Throughout its ownership, TWENTY has been diligently kept out of the water when not engaged in fishing activities, with marine professionals providing meticulous care and maintenance.

Originally built by the world’s most renowned sportfish company, TWENTY stands as a true classic and a stunning example of a perfectly preserved vessel.
