    Yes I know that she was built in the USA.
    I wanted to say that quality (outside) looks like the quality
    from european yards.
    And I work on my English skills , sorry that they aren't very well.

    I think Justus was saying that Cakewalk looked as though it could have been built by Oceanco or Lurssen, but got lost in the translation.

    Justus, some good advice is offered by K1W1. Being fluent in multiple languages is a big plus (in any line of work), but I'm more concerned about you expressing your opinions without having any real world experience on these boats.

    I know one of our mods has asked you to refrain from posting unless you had something relevant to add to a thread. Please govern yourself accordingly. You are welcome to read the forums and learn. An occasional remark when you have specific knowledge or information is welcome, but nothing more... please. This isn't a playground.

    Cakewalk

    I talked with the supplier/manufacturer of the stainless steel used on Cakewalk, a German fellow that I met in Cape Coral, I assumed and queried that the |StSt
    was made in Europe ?? no..Taiwan

    Is "Cakewalk" still Cakewalk or is she "Cupcake"? I'm still baffled by the name in a link I posted yesterday. I remember she was up for sale...

    I think the photographer got confused or something got lost in the translation of Cakewalk so that he inadvertently labeled his photo "Cupcake".

    That's what I was thinking that the photographer just messed up!

    Thanks Ron.
    Tips: use manual settings, let the camera do the work for you, and use a good tripod for best stability.

    Not a typo. She has been available for sale at that price for quite some time. This is still over $100 million less than Nirvana.

    I love the oriental carpet in the bridge, but the yacht needs an urgent redecor (for its price segment), and then the price is out there, which makes it a very hard sell. No way they can get anywhere near 192 million.

    Well they have surely tested the waters now...and no bites supposedly. It can only go south from there..the price that is.

    I've loved th exterior design but hated the interior. I'm also not a fan of the exhaust going straight up versus channeling it through the sides of the salon. I think this takes away more space making each of the saloons appear smaller than necessary. Her price will probably go down but I'm curious what will happen with Nirvana. She is greatly overpriced and I wonder where she will fall to.

    I mean come on...all a tentative owner/buyer needs is a shade of advice to know that ALL of these yachts, "Nirvana", "Cakewalk" and company are grossly overpriced. Who is going to buy an 86-meter yacht for nearly 200 million dollars?
