Cakewalk – Largest Yacht Built in US Since J.P. Morgan’s Corsair IV

While we may prefer prefer vessels with more sticks, cloth and string, we are overdue in acknowledging the construction of  Cakewalk, a new  $82 million 85 meter yacht, which was delivered from Derecktor Shipyards in Bridgeport, CT yard in August. Cakewalk is the largest yacht built in the US since Bath Iron Works built the Corsair IV for J.P. Morgan in 1930.

    Nice Yacht, must be nice to have that kind of money.

    Too bad that Derecktor misspelled Superyacht as
    “Superacht”.

    How embarrassing.

    Oh well. Typos will be the death of us all. I think it was Charterworld and not Derecktor who made the typo. Not that I am one to be overly critical of those make typos….
