Two new 164-foot yachts from Christensen Shipyards are set to launch at the end of June.

The Vancouver, Wash., yard said the yachts are scheduled to debut in November at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Hull 40, which will be christened Chausseur, is a 50-meter, Maritime and Coastguard Agency-compliant yacht with bleached sycamore interior woodwork with rosewood.

Hull 36, Silver Lining, is a large volume non-MCA yacht with a traditional interior of high-gloss black walnut. Slightly longer than Chausseur, she features a full-beam sky lounge.

Both launches will take place with the shipyard’s new launching system, which uses self-propelled steerable dollies and large drydock-like stern launch structures, according to the company’s recently launched newsletter.
