The Derecktor 86 meter Cakewalk Project is officially in the final stages. This is believed to be the “Next Big Thing” when it comes to American yacht construction. The Derecktor Shipyards located in the city of Bridgeport in Connecticut has been working diligently on the Cakewalk Project. The final luxury yacht that will emerge from the project will be an amazing 281 feet in length.

The amazing water vessel was introduced at the Monaco Yacht Show in the year of 2008. Individuals will find the distinct physical appearance to exhibit the highest elegance and that the design company, Rainsford Mann Design Limited to be complimentary to the basic naval based architecture of Derecktor.

The Cakewalk Project not only incorporates style, design, and innovation, but it is also incorporating many characteristics that will make it an energy efficient luxury yacht. Currently, Derecktor Shipbuilders is also constructing another energy efficient yacht that is 52 meters in length. The project is known as the Awareness Project. Considering that the same shipyard is working on the Cakewalk, we are sure to see many of the same energy efficient features highlighted in this luxury yacht. This means that the hull will likely be longer, the beam will be shorter, and even the integration of solar panels.

The Cakewalk Project will include an amazing propulsion system that is actually quite advanced. It will incorporate Azipod drives in order to control the rate and type of propulsion. The speed is believed to average right at an estimated 17 knots.

The crew for the amazing luxury yacht will be anywhere between 18 and 20 individuals that will work to serve approximately 12 individual guests. The actual superstructure will be composed of aluminum and the hull will be composed of pure steel. In addition to the unique feature designs of this super yacht, many will be surprised to see an addition of a helicopter landing pad. This makes travel between the water and the land easy.

Unlike other luxury yachts, the Cakewalk Project will incorporate extra height throughout the rooms for added appeal, luxury, and comfort. The designers have worked carefully to ensure that there is plenty of open space so that those traveling on the vessel can enjoy a high variety of activities and be more comfortable overall.

In addition to this, instead of the furniture being built into the water vessel, there will be freestanding pieces that the owner of the amazing super yacht will be able to arrange to their preference and needs. This level of customization is relatively new to yacht operators as most interior rooms come with furniture that cannot be moved to accommodate guests and basic personal tastes.

Amazingly, large living spaces are not the only distinct features of this amazing luxury yacht. When individuals explore the interior areas of the boat, they will discover a full ocean lounge and bar as well as a gym for working out. There is also a full service spa where travelers can go to relax.

All in all, every accommodation is designed to be as energy efficient as possible. Like the Awareness Project, Derecktor has set a new standard with the Cakewalk Project – bringing together efficiency, style, and quality.
