Denver investor Charles Gallagher, 72, rarely shows up on lists of the nation’s wealthiest people, but he has just built the longest yacht constructed in the United States since the 1930s.
He says size doesn’t matter.
“There’s no such thing as having the largest yacht in the world,” he told the Hartford Courant. “But it is important to us to have the finest quality yacht in the world. That’s what I set out for.”
His 281-foot craft, called “Cakewalk,” has six staterooms for guests and separate quarters for captain and crew. It sports “Versailles-patterened” woodwork, a central spiral staircase, a grand piano and artwork.
