Motor Yacht AQUILA (ex CAKEWALK) - a Derecktor Superyacht

Yacht Description

The 2010 281ft (85,6m) Motor Yacht AQUILA (ex CAKEWALK) has been constructed by Derecktor Shipyard and has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. The principal yacht designer for this magnificent superyacht was Tim Heywood, who drew the yacht's exterior styling and general arrangement. The interior design was done by the renowned Liz Dalton of Dalton Designs, Inc. in Palm Beach, Florida. The naval architecture for the vessel’s 17-knot full displacement hull was a Dutch design firm Azure Naval Architects.

Motor Yacht AQUILA (ex CAKEWALK)

In keeping with superyacht AQUILA's dual mission as a private vessel and an exclusive luxury charter yacht, hospitality and comfort are emphasized on every deck.

Among AQUILA yacht’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 can 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, AQUILA’s six guest staterooms are located on the main deck, where their oversized windows 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.

While luxury yacht AQUILA’s six decks all are served by an elevator for complete guest accessibility, one of the project’s crowning achievements is the central spiral staircase. Featuring intricate wrought ironwork against a backdrop of soaring cherry wood panels, this grand staircase creates a different ambiance at every landing.

The stairway foyer on the owners’ deck, for example, features Versailles-patterned woodwork that sets the tone for the rest of this spacious private deck. The large master stateroom, trimmed in limed oak, features a king-sized berth facing a semicircle of large windows, a separate sitting room, his-and- hers baths and twin walk-in closets. The whole suite can be offered to very special charter guests.

Dual gyms – a fitness center and a yoga/aerobics studio – along with a large recreation salon also are located on the owners’ deck. On the aft deck, a large oval table provides an inviting al fresco dining alternative.

There are two more levels of enjoyment – the bridge deck with its comfortable recreation/media salon and huge aft-deck exterior balcony, and the lofty sun deck. The latter aerie is split between a sunning area with spa and an outdoor bar/observation lounge that will give guests one of the best vantage points from any yacht on the water today.

Designer Tim Heywood and Derecktor gave the tender bay that houses AQUILA superyacht’s trio of tenders special emphasis. This massive compartment, which he nicknamed “The Boathouse,” measures 47ft (14,3m) by 40 feet (12,2m), has 10-foot (3m) headroom and is finished in clean, white Awlgrip paint. The tenders sit in custom-fit cradles with the yacht’s four Yamaha WaveRunners in between them; two SeaBob underwater scooters are mounted on the bulkhead.

Yacht Accommodation

Accommodation aboard the striking AQUILA superyacht is offered in 7 deluxe cabins, including six lovely en-suite guest cabins, all positioned on the main deck.
