The contents of 82-metre motor yacht Sarafsa, now renamed Pure, have sold at auction for a total value of €300,000.

The Devonport yacht was built in 2008 for Saudi Arabia's Prince Fahad Bin Sultan and later presented a prime opportunity for a refit project when she joined the brokerage market in June 2022. 

The yacht's sale was announced in April this year and she had an asking price of €65 million. The buyer, who remains unnamed, is reportedly set on refurbishing both the yacht's interior and exterior in order to "bring her back to her former glory and some more". 

As part of the preparations, the interior contents of the yacht had been cleared out and put up for sale, including everything from the mahogany grand piano to the silver mounting salt and pepper shakers used onboard. According to a representative from Cannes auction house Pichon & Noudel-Deniau, who hosted the proceedings, suitable buyers were found for all 525 lots on offer with itemised prices ranging from €50 to €11,500.

The opulent but dated interior from Winch Design included a variety of traditional furnishings, inspired by the original owner's love for classic Mediterranean glamour. 

Among the individual pieces was a Regency-era clock from Franz Hermle that sold for €300, a blackened wood and red tortoiseshell cabinet in the style of Napolean III for €550 and a lacquered dial with mechanical arms that went for €1,600.

The upcoming refit project will be managed by JMS Yachting, although more detailed plans have yet to be disclosed.
