Who is going to retire around the world? This Florida-based company Arkup has launch a off-grid, liveable luxury yacht. Powered by 30 kW of solar and twin electric thrusters, these high-class, ultra modern double decker units have hydraulic legs capable of stabilizing and lifting them out of the water.
The arkup vessel sets its own stable foundation (in up to 20 feet of water) via a hydraulic jack system to the tune of 272 horsepower. its solar-powered and, according to arkup is resilient against up to category 5 hurricane. With massive windows and a miniature infinity balcony, the giant pontoon sits, staged in beige and white and greys and tiny pops of terracotta — a miami vessel through and through, thanks to arkup and artefacto.
This crazy 4,350 square foot interior design is sleek, modern and high end, and can be tailored to become a home, a vacation home, an event/party venue, a restaurant, a gym, a day spa or whatever else you can build a business case for.
Maybe a seafood restaurant? That might be where this kind of design shines, as a kind of aquatic, self contained pop-up restaurant. You’d have to charge like a wounded bull to recoup your costs, though.
