Video: Regatta season on-board sailing superyacht Tempus Fugit

3 August 2016 • Written by Chris Jefferies

Tempus Fugit has enjoyed a particularly fun regatta season – the modern classic sailing yacht that blends speed and style competed at both the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta and the Superyacht Cut Palma in 2016.

Launched by Arkin Pruva in 2013, this 27.43 metre monohull was built from a cold-moulded wooden hull and superstructure, with exterior design and naval architecture by Rob Humphreys Yacht Design. Tempus Fugit is currently for sale, following a recent €600,000 price drop at Cecil Wright & Partners.

In this video, Erbil Arkin from the Turkish yard talks about why sailing on board this elegant yacht makes him very happy:

Tempus Fugit competed in all four races in the Superyacht Class B at the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta (June 7-11), achieving a best-place finish of fourth out of a fleet of seven sailing superyachts. Arkin reserved special praise for Porto Cervo, calling it “one of the best venues in the world”.

In the same month, Tempus Fugit followed this up by finishing first in Class B at the Superyacht Cup in Palma. She took second place overall in the Balearic regatta, which ran from June 22-25 this year.

However it’s not just Tempus Fugit’s performance that makes her such a satisfying yacht to sail, as Arkin explains: “I absolutely love wooden boats – they will last more than a lifetime for most people, if they’re looked after.”

“For me, we’re sailing a work of art,” he added. “There’s always a compromise between the functionality of the boat and the aesthetics of the boat. We sail a beautiful object, which makes me in particular, very happy.”
