"Exciting times lie ahead for Hill Robinson USA," Barrett Wright talks about the continuing investment in the South Florida market, "with our growing and very productive working relationship with Rybovich." Hill Robinson’s senior technical manager Chris Wright is also enthusiastic about the company’s expansion, “Having had a long relationship with the Rybovich shipyard in West Palm Beach Florida and with the owner, I have the opportunity to confirm Hill Robinson’s commitment to the future development of the company in becoming the first yacht management company onsite at this super important location.”

With the yacht industry growing in confidence, a second office in the growing South Florida refit market is a commercial coup for the fast growing Hill Robinson brand in the USA. Chris continues, “with a steady turnover of vessels in the Palm Beach yard and local marinas, this is a huge opportunity for us to grow our full services portfolio from refit project management, technical consultancy, compliance, crew placement to full yacht management. What better place for Hill Robinson to be, than in the centre of a high profile and expanding shipyard. Setting up shop within the Rybovich facility will in turn increase the customer base both in size and capacity and subsequently provide growth opportunities for Hill Robinson in the refit and superyacht repair market.”

In response Carlos Vidueira for Rybovich stated, “We are very pleased to have Hill Robinson and Chris Wright onsite bringing another addition to our pledge of exceptional customer service.”

Hill Robinson adds further strings to the Rybovich bow

Rybovich currently service around 300 yachts annually, the bigger yachts requiring full systems up-grades, painting and some even hull extensions. With bigger docks and dredging to 18ft, yachts in the 80m range will be right on our doorstep. The deep draft capability is ideal for big power and sail boats, both of which Chris Wright already has good experience.

Phil Burgess, General Manager of Pinmar USA commenting on Hill Robinson’s announcement said, “It is great to have high quality teams, like Hill Robinson Yacht Management, working out of the same office facilities in Rybovich Riviera Beach in order to ensure that the new breed of mega yachts has access to a full portfolio of refit services.”

Barrett Wright, President of Hill Robinson USA concludes, "With this expansion of Hill Robinson to Palm Beach, comes the addition of new employees to the HR USA team and we are thrilled to welcome Gianfranco Di Costanzo, Elizabeth Tamez and Alexandre Santos. Each new employee brings with them multi-lingual capabilities, as well as considerable knowledge for their respective roles, which offers significant added value to our clientele and to the level of service we are able to provide.”
