SeaHunter Boats plans to add 75 jobs once the expansion at its manufacturing facility in southern Miami-Dade County is complete.

The builder hired construction management company Camcon Group for the project and plans to break ground on the expansion this fall, according to the Business Journal.

SeaHunter reportedly plans to add a new building on the north side of the 46,000-square-foot facility, which would provide a total of 134,000 square feet and double the company’s manufacturing capability. The facility will be built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane and will include a showroom and office space.

SeaHunter builds seven offshore fishing models.

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