55′ Rybovich Sportfish Yacht MISS BRADFORD

This 55′ Rybovich Sportfish Yacht MISS BRADFORD, originally a White Swan Hull #74, is a true example of a classic Tommy Rybovich design, from her varnished mast on her foredeck to her oak interior.

Miss Bradford is a superb model of a well thought-out design that is still functional and original to this day.

Vessel Walkthrough

Starting in the large teak cockpit, you have a large original, mounted Rybovich chair, white bolstered coaming wrapping around the Teak gunwale with recessed rod & gaff holders to port and starboard, a large transom door to starboard, a tackle center forward with a stainless-steel sink and six drawers, and a custom dual freezer to port. Forward to starboard, there is a six-step ladder to the bridge.

Enter through double doors and one step up, you are in the Salon. The interior is done in oak and complemented with blue carpeting. There is an ample L-shaped settee to port covered in off-white fabric that seats six adults comfortably. A teak coffee table is centered here and across to starboard are two caned, occasional arm chairs. Blue and white patterned throw pillows are added for cushioned comfort and ties in with the blue and white stripped curtains on the windows.

Forward of the salon is a U-shaped, well equipped galley to port with ample storage built-in cabinets to starboard. The oak continues throughout this area and one will notice the seamless detail of the custom cabinetry covering the stove and oven.

Continuing forward and down three steps, you have the Master Stateroom to port. This stateroom has an L-shaped over/under bunks with window for natural lighting. The oak cabinetry continues in this room with ample storage and a small built-in vanity. Forward in this room is the ensuite head with sink, toilet and stall shower.

To starboard is a Guest Stateroom with upper and lower bunk beds. Continuing forward in this room is the head complete with sink, toilet and stall shower. This head also has an access door from the hallway.

Back in the hallway and all the way forward is the V Stateroom. Upper and Lower bunk beds are to port and across to starboard are hanging closet, head and sink, and a separate stall shower.

The blue and white decor continues throughout the staterooms; carpeting, curtains, bed linens and pillows.

From the aft deck, going up the 6-step ladder, brings you to the bridge area. There is a built-in center console with chair. There is bench seating, both port and starboard, offering great view while underway.
