Persak & Wurmfeld’s Lesson Learned in Guiding Compl
tion of the Largest Yacht Launched in the U.S. Since 19
By Carl Persak
M/Y CAKEWALK V, the largest private yacht launched from a U.S. yard since 193
was certainly no “cakewalk” to build. Getting this one-of-a-kind beauty from conc
to launch involved numerous premier designers and engineers from around the
world. Westlawn alumnus Jeremy Wurmfeld and design partner Carl Persak of P
sak & Wurmfeld (P&W) recall their experiences as Project Engineer during the fi
year of the build, and recollect on some lessons learned during the monumental
delivery . . .
At 2,998 gross tons, CAKEWALK V is nearly triple the volume of the CAKEWALK I
she replaces. The 17-knot, steel, full-displacement build takes advantage of a 4
beam with a salon that includes both a fireplace and grand piano. Both a private
vessel and available for charter, CAKEWALK is a classic beauty. Her design drew
the talents of an international team including Tim Heywood, Azure Naval Archite
BMT Nigel Gee, Vripack Yachting, and Liz Dalton of Dalton Designs. Underneath t
yacht’s dramatic sweeping lines and impressive interiors lies a myriad of comple
technical systems.
