Christensen Shipyards has signed a contract to build a 164-foot Custom Series megayacht worth just shy of $36 million.

The deal was inked at the recent Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show. Plans are for the yacht to feature new exterior styling including a fold-out balcony and a swim-deck extension.

Inside, the yacht will have staterooms for as many as 12 guests. No further information has been released about design or specifications.

Christensen says delivery of the latest 164 is expected in August 2016. Between now and then, the Washington-based builder says it may add 100 employees to its 380-person full-time work force to complete the new build along with eight other yachts and additional projects it has under contract.
