Florida-based firm Arkup has introduced their off-grid, livable luxury yacht concept. Driven by 30 kW of solar and dual electric thrusters, the high-class, modern double-decker units include hydraulic legs effective at controlling and raising them out of the water.
Nevertheless, the concept seems excellent for people who have the means to pay to play. A stand-alone, electric, double-decker houseboat that can lay down hydraulic legs to lift itself out of the swells in the water around 20 ft deep. The liveable yacht will not make anyone seasick, and it gathers its rainwater from a roof that works as a 30-kilowatt solar panel, providing around 1,000 kilowatt-hours volume of lithium batteries onboard.
It features a built-in communications set, with 4G, Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, and VHF radio prepared to rock, and its double 136-hp electric thrusters can turn 360 degrees to move about the spot or chug along at a sedate 7 knot top speed. The patio retracts when you are on the move; there is a boat lift to secure your tender away from the water, along with the sun deck can be completely submerged in water to become a guarded sea-pool.
Arkup recognizes it as a way to have a future-proof deluxe escape you can park at a yachting harbor or anchor in a stream or lake to give yourself a wonderful view regardless of how high sea levels might go up. It’s ready to endure the 155 mph winds of a category 4 hurricane making it a reliable refuge even in a bad weather condition.
