Fully electric and self-elevating livable yacht concept
October 27, 2017
ARKUP, the "avant-garde life on water" company, presents its state-of-the-art fully electric and self-elevating livable yacht concept at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, starting November 1st, 2017.
Floating houses are not new, but this extravagant concept uses an all electric system, rainwater harvesting, and an automated hydraulic jack-up system for support.
Floating houses are popular ways of living in some parts of the world, in particular US West Coast cities, the Netherlands, as well as South-East Asia. Being one answer to face climate change, floods and sea level rise, they are also a key solution to urban growth and space scarcity.
ARKUP differentiates with electric propulsion to address mobility and automated hydraulic jack-up system to ensure comfort and hurricane resilience. To achieve its sustainability objectives, ARKUP designs 100% solar powered recreational vessels integrating rainwater harvesting.
