Our 4,350 sqft mobile floating mansion is fully solar powered and harvest rainwater in order to provide the ultimate off-the-grid water-based living experience.”Dock in a metropolitan marina or anchor in a tranquil bay. There’s just something about living on the water, coming home to the light shimmering on the surface after a long day in the city. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.

The Arkup livable yacht was conceived to be “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 2,300 sqft roof collects the rainwater and is covered with 36 kW solar electric panels which generate sufficient green energy to live off-the-grid. Live ecologically while being self-sufficient with water and electricity. Rainwater is collected from the roof, then stored in the hull and purified to ensure fresh water full-autonomy.

You are free to move your home as you want. Two noise-free electric thrusters of 136 hp each rotate 180° for the best maneuverability to propel the yacht up to 5 knots. The four 40ft long hydraulic legs allow to anchor in up to 20ft water depths and lift the livable yacht above the sea-level, avoiding any seasickness. No matter the weather conditions and high winds, surge and floods are no longer an issue thanks to this self-lifting system making you feel 100% safe and protected.//arkup
