Arkin Pruva sailing yacht Tempus Fugit sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 27 metre sailing yacht Tempus Fugit, listed for sale by Alastair Shove at Carrswood Yachts, has been sold to a direct client.
Tempus Fugit was launched in 2013 and turned heads on the racecourse with her beautiful cold moulded mahogany hull. Built by Turkish yard Arkin Pruva, she is inspired by classic J Class yachts, but this modern classic yacht offers spacious living accommodations thanks to her generous beam.
Designed by Humphreys Yacht Design, she is the first of the Tempus 90 Class and is built to a high standard of construction, featuring generous accommodation for seven guests in four guest cabins and three crew in two cabins. She has a spacious full beam main saloon with comfortable seating and dining for eight. Alternatively, guests can dine al fresco and relax in her equally spacious centre cockpit with a custom-designed expandable table.
Tempus Fugit has accommodation finished in the Herreschoff style with beautifully crafted raised panel teak joinery, select polished marbles, and period stainless fixtures. The topsides are finished with Awlgrip’s new ultra low maintenance Awlwood MA Clear Gloss varnish, giving her a beautiful shine that’s easy to care for from stem to stern.
Tempus Fugit has proven to be a superb performance cruiser also capable of race winning performance, having participated and distinguished herself in Les Voiles de St Tropez, the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous, the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta in Porto Cervo and last year's Palma regatta.
Tempus Fugit was asking €2,650,000.
