CAKEWALK - an exceptional addition to the Burgess sales fleet

Upon delivery last year, the 85.6m (281ft) CAKEWALK captured the attention of the superyacht world as one of the most spectacular new yachts to hit the water in 2010 and is now offered for sale for the first time.

Built at Derecktor Shipyard to exacting standards, under the close supervision of a highly experienced and knowledgeable owner's team, CAKEWALK is a remarkable vessel in all respects. Her flowing lines and accentuated curves were created by Tim Heywood Design, lending the yacht fabulous presence on the water and making her instantly recognisable.

CAKEWALK's classically styled interior was designed by Elizabeth Dalton and despite her volume and grandeur, retains an atmosphere of both intimacy and warmth. The attention to detail and craftsmanship is impressive with rich rosewoods and oaks featured throughout many of the guest areas. A grand sweeping spiral staircase and an elevator links four deck levels.

The owner enjoys a superb private deck comprising a vast master suite, with study/lounge, lavish his/hers marble bathrooms, gymnasium and day spa. The foyer of the owner's deck leads aft into a large saloon complete with bar, relaxing lounge area and cinema/theatre.

All guest accommodation is situated on the main deck, comprising: 4 cabins with king size beds, 2 cabins with two double beds and 1 staff/supernumery cabin with twin bunk beds. Guest cabins are spacious and extremely comfortable, benefitting from large windows providing stunning views and an abundance of natural light.

Al fresco living at its ultimate has been conceived over 4 deck levels. The sun deck is beautifully furnished with a range of observation chairs, sun loungers and card tables, along with a bar and large whirlpool spa. The additional 3 external decks afford a perfect blend of open or shaded seating for relaxing, dining or entertaining on a grand scale.

The yacht features comprehensive communications & navigation equipment throughout, incorporating the latest state-of-the-art 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.

The technical areas of this yacht have been planned in meticulous detail and executed to the very highest standards, with close supervision from the owner's captain and chief engineer.

CAKEWALK is making her debut in the Mediterranean this summer. To find out more about this exciting opportunity, contact a Burgess broker.
