Bimini Babe was the 13th sportfishing boat built by Rybovich. She was commissioned by Robert E. Maytag, celebrated tournament fisherman and noted ecologist. She is one of the three earliest examples of Rybovich craftsmanship still operating as intended.
Bimini Babe was the sixth in a series of 36 footers. She is considered a further refinement of an extremely successful design along with her sisters, Hull #16 Four Bells and Hull #18 Timid Tuna.
She underwent a total refit in 2004/2005 and recently went in for updated electronics and paint.
