Icing on the Cakewalk
A special boat deserves special tenders.
Cakewalk totes a variety of toys and tenders. A 34-foot Intrepid is aboard, for example — excellent for towing skiers, exploring coastlines or indulging guest anglers. Yamaha PWCs, Seabob water sleds, kneeboards, sea kayaks and other gear keep smiles on the faces of a variety of guests. But two of Cakewalk’s tenders truly stand out from the rest.
The 37-foot Vikal, custom-designed by Tim Heywood to complement Cakewalk, sports a deep-blue hull. As luxurious as its mothership, there’s plush seating inside the cabin and at the bow. Performance-wise, it’s more akin to a race car than a limo: it has a top speed of 50 knots, thanks to twin 370-horsepower Volvo Penta D6 turbocharged engines.
The Riva Aquariva 100 Centro is hull number 9 of only 10 made to celebrate the 100th unit of the Aquariva line. The nearly 33-footer sports the high-gloss wood of the famed Italian runabouts but guests should hold onto their champagne: Twin 370-horsepower Yanmar engines push it to 42 knots.
