Life on the Water
ARKUP – Livable Yacht

Explore your first floating home. There is no better lifestyle than this. Imagine an ultimate, year-round, oceanfront view, as well as the unique experience of being at the forefront of the latest “zero-emission” initiatives and technological advancements. House Yacht Living allows you to say “no” to property taxes, HOA fees, and of course, to live in absence of city laws. This is the premiere option to lead a remarkable life as an independent explorer. In other words, your house, your rules, wherever you see yourself living or vacationing, while protecting the natural world.


Enjoy the expandable 500 sq. ft. terrace and over-sized, high-end, loft style living room with avant-garde home automation technologies. The ARKUP is completely stable when lifted up on its 4 hydraulic spuds. These act as protection from the effects of waves, tropical winds, and category 4 hurricane turbulence. Arkup livable yachts have systems for rainwater harvesting, water purification, and waste management. In addition, solar panels are the source of all electrical needs. Therefore, you will be entirely “off-grid”. The awe-inspiring vessel is akin to that of a James Bond hideout. Choose comfort and grandeur in total autonomy while you take pleasure in life between the sea, the sky and the city.


* ARKUP is listed for $5.9 million fully furnished-decorated. Base price without furniture is $5.5 million. The vessel is 75ft long, 32ft wide (44ft when the sliding deck is extended). The vessel is self-propelled and fully solar-powered. It is designed for shallow, partially protected waters and can be anchored in up to 25ft of water, where there are no marine resources (seagrass/coral reef…)

Arkup livable yachts are registered as recreational vessels. There are no HOA fees, no property taxes, no rental restrictions, and increased tax benefits and incentives over traditional real estate. The vessel has a 4.5 ft draft, designed to withstand category 4 hurricanes, can handle sea state level 3 and is equipped with hurricane impact windows.

The current vessel in Miami Beach is FOR SALE!
