The Triton - Port Slip Opens To Yachts

A 450-foot slip in the Port of Palm Beach is now available for large yachts.

Port commissioners voted unanimously on Oct. 19 to lease the slip to Berth One International, a company co-owned by a yacht owner and his former captain, Kevin O’Conor.

The slip lies at the northern end of the port — Berth No. 1 — and had been the site of the 3,000-ton floating dry dock operated by Rybovich shipyard. Port officials indicated at the public meeting that the dry dock would be relocated to berth 14 in the port.

The first yacht in that slip is expected Nov. 3, said Deb Radtke, owner of American Yacht Agents, which will handle berthing at the slip.
