The Arkup livable yacht was conceived to be sustainable and “future-proof”, from its ability to withstand or avoid extreme weather events, to its self-contained systems that allow fully off-the-grid living.


The Arkup features glass walls, multiple levels subdivided into interconnected rooms, and instant access to the water. Solar power generates enough juice not just for lights and air-conditioning, but also power for its electric engines to cruise 20 miles on a single charge.

The home is propelled by a pair of 100 kW (134 hp) electric azimuth thrusters, allowing it to reach 7 knots. With solar panel technology, rain water harvesting and retractable hydraulic legs, the ARKUP is designed for off-the-grid living.
