SeaHunter Boats to double its manufacturing capability and create 75 new jobs

SeaHunter Boats has announced plans to nearly triple its Miami, Florida campus, allowing the maker of offshore centre console boats to double its manufacturing capability and add an additional 75 jobs to its workforce.

The 134,000sq ft expansion includes the addition of a pre-engineered steel structure building capable of withstanding a Category 5 hurricane which will house manufacturing, assembly, and office space, plus a new showroom.

“Due to SeaHunter’s loyal and growing customer base, we have reached a point where expansion is necessary to meet increasing demand,” said Ralph Montalvo, SeaHunter Boats’ president, in a news release.

The project also includes a welding shop for all in-house metal work, and a Research & Development area complete with a state-of-the-art five-axis CNC machine to ensure precision and superior quality for all new boat models and parts developed by SeaHunter’s internal engineering team.

CAMCON Group has been retained by SeaHunter to design and build its new facility, which is expected to break ground in autumn of 2019.
