Catalog excerpts

CAKEWALK Tremendous. Fantastic. Fabulous. In an age of easy superlatives, words tend to lose their meaning. Which makes describing the rare something worthy of such extravagant language somewhat difficult. Take Cakewalk. At 85.6 meters and 2998 tons, she is simply the largest yacht ever built in America. She is also, in the opinion of the experts who’ve seen her, the first U.S. built yacht to meet, and in many cases, exceed the standards of the very best European builders. Cakewalk. Perfectly capable of speaking for herself.

For Derecktor, Cakewalk is more than a job. She is an unprecedented challenge and an unrivalled opportunity. To prove not only that a U.S. builder can more than hold it’s own with the world’s best, but to devise and implement construction methodologies that make that possible. Processes that not only lead to more efficient and better results but that help streamline and integrate design, engineering and construction throughout the entire project. If indeed necessity is the mother of invention, Cakewalk has spawned great creativity and innovation. Every detail, from site security to quality...

METAL Even for Derecktor, a yard known worldwide for it’s superlative metal work, Cakewalk takes, well, the cake. Steel hull, aluminum superstructure and more custom stainless than most yards create in a lifetime – it all upholds not only the yards reputation but the lofty standards of the yacht herself.

CURVES, CURVES, CURVES Far from large and linear, Cakewalk contains more curves than a mountain road. Anyone who knows metal knows what a challenge they present to everyone involved. A challenge handled with sinuous expertise by the people at Derecktor.

NEARING THE FINISH When it comes to fairing a yacht prior to painting, less is less, and the more less the better. On Cakewalk, with the raw metal structures extremely fair to begin with, a minimal amount of fairing is needed. This saves weight, saves time, and saves money.

CAP IT OFF Cakewalk’s cap rail is something of a work of art in itself. Just finding the teak was an adventure-our joinery manager made several trips to the Philippines to locate and select pieces of Burmese teak large and beautiful enough to make the grade. Forming, shaping, fitting and finishing all took the sort of skills not easily found in today’s world. Fortunately, they are readily found at Derecktor.

UNDER THE SURFACE Beyond her sheer size, behind her overwhelming grandeur, Cakewalk is a true technical marvel. Miles of cable, piles of pipe and many tons of machinery all work behind the scenes to bring her alive and put her in motion. It’s here, where it can’t be easily seen, that some of our best work has gone. It’s here that the effort will show, not in an obvious way, but in the years ahead as Cakewalk sails the world.

“The owner really wanted to build Cakewalk here in the United States because he’s American. We felt that with this team we put together, we could do the project in the U.S. at a yard like Derecktor that knows how to build yachts and knows how to build ships. You have to have a commercial mentality to build a project this big.” –Captain Bill Zinser, Owner’s Representative, Captain of Cakewalk Captain Bill Zinser has been boating all of his life. Growing up on the Connecticut shore, Bill’s grandfathers both were involved in the boating industry. His official yachting career began in 1971, as...
