Hakvoort is not a shipyard that most yachtsmen think of when it comes to fishing. Founded in 1919 in the Netherlands, the Hakvoort yard has been known for superyachts since the 1980s, with recent launches including the 200-foot Top Five II in 2021 and the 148-foot Milele in 2023.

But back in 1990, an owner commissioned Hakvoort to build this 112-footer as the “ultimate sporting tender” to a superyacht. Tempo Reale is now in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and listed for sale on its own with Denison Yachting. The asking price is $3.7 million.

Sales brokers Bruce Schattenburg and Scott Lacroix say Tempo Reale is an ideal vessel for the Bahamas or other shallow-water destinations, thanks to its jet drives and 4-foot-10-inch draft. The vessel’s hull is aluminum, helping to keep weight down.

According to the brokers, cruising speed is 25 knots with a top hop of 34 knots, thanks to MTU power plants in the engine room. Fuel capacity is 6,660 gallons for longer runs out to the canyons in search of big game.

Recent upgrades to Tempo Reale include a Control4 “smart home” integration system throughout the yacht; a Kaleidescape movie server; a Garmin navigation suite; LED lighting; Starlink internet; and new televisions and carpeting.

The cockpit is oversized for sportfishing and watersports, with a hydraulic swim platform for easy access to the water by swimmers, snorkelers and scuba divers. Cocktail tables are here too, for parents who want to relax on board while keeping an eye on the kids in the water.

Inside on the main deck are a salon and dining room, along with a stateroom that can be considered a master or VIP. There’s a second salon near the helm, giving guests panoramic views all around no matter whether the yacht is at anchor or underway. Another lounging space is up on the flybridge, which is sheltered from the elements by a hardtop. A second helm station is up there too, in addition to the indoor helm station.

There’s also guest seating on the foredeck, with a six-person hot tub. The location should help to block the gaze of prying eyes whenever Tempo Reale is tied up stern-to, Med-style.

Appliances in the galley are Miele, with a Maxx Ice machine to keep the cool cubes popping out all day long. The yacht also has Apple TV and a DirecTV satellite dome for helping guests stay entertained.

What’s the condition of Tempo Reale? The sales brokers call this yacht’s condition “exceptional,” adding that the “generous owner” and full-time crew have made sure the vessel is “lovingly maintained.”
