OUR VISION

Urban growth, rising seas and energy independence are key challenges for our generation. Our solution is a unique avant-garde concept of life on the water. A combination of research in renewable energies, technological innovation and cutting edge spatial design and style situates your new home between the sea and the metropolis.

OUR MISSION

Arkup pioneers fully solar powered and sustainable luxury livable yachts. We think sustainably from conception to construction. We offer high-end design combined with a technological edge. We strive for excellence, quality and technical innovation to create your “future-proof blue dwellings”.

NEW LIFESTYLE

Floating houses are popular ways of living in some parts of the world, in particular in the Netherlands and US West Coast cities. Interest is growing and ARKUP is first to market with an “à la carte” product for upscale Florida buyers bringing major innovations to a simple concept: your off-grid “blue dwelling” is now a one-of-a-kind vessel to enjoy 365 days a year.

UNIQUE & EXCLUSIVE

As comfortable and safe as a house onshore, Arkup livable yachts can cruise silently in the bay or allow you to live stationary in a downtown marina. The vessel is completely stable when lifted up on its hydraulic spuds to protect you from the effect of waves and tropical winds. Just relax and enjoy, you can live in the view!
