When she was delivered last year, the 281ft (85.6m) Cakewalk Superyacht captured the attention of the superyacht world when she was displayed at the Fort Lauderdale boat show. She is now offered for sale for the first time. Merle Wood and Burgess have been appointed co-central agents for the sale of Cakewalk. Cakewalk is making her debut in the Mediterranean this summer and will be anchored off Monaco for this weekend’s Grand Prix where she will be available for qualified client inspections.
This Cakewalk surpasses her four predecessors in size and is the largest yacht built in the USA since the 1930s, and the biggest ever built in the United States when measured by volume. Built by Derecktor in 2010 to a Tim Heywood design, her seamless interior is by Elizabeth Dalton.
Among Cakewalk’s many outstanding characteristics are her ultra-spacious public areas, which make good use of her 46.92ft (14.30m) beam and enormous volume. Upon their arrival onboard, guests will find a warm welcome in the large salon on the main deck. Styled as an elegant library, complete with fireplace and grand piano, it will feature millwork in American cherry wood complemented by accents in different exotic woods. The main salon also encompasses a separate formal dining salon, forward, with a spectacular chandelier designed by Dalton Designs and a circular custom-built table that can seat the yacht’s full complement of guests.
Unlike most motor yachts, Derecktor’s superyacht’s six guest staterooms are located on the main deck, where their oversized windows will offer expansive views that would be impossible from a more traditional lower deck guest area. Designed to be equivalent in size and amenities, so every guest feels equally pampered, these staterooms each incorporate an en suite bath with spa tub.
The yacht features comprehensive communications and navigation equipment throughout, incorporating the latest technology. An impressive inventory of tenders and watersports equipment is stowed in a dedicated climate-controlled garage which opens with large shell doors to port and starboard.
