“We are proud to unveil the first of our next-generation floating homes,” says Nicolas Derouin, CEO and co-founder of ARKUP. “Showcasing it during the Miami Yacht show will be a turning point for our company to get first-hand feedback from demanding clients and professionals.”

Arkup #1 is the first model of a revolutionary floating home that addresses key challenges in urban planning and coastal living for future generations. Its hydraulic pilings allow it to put down a steady foundation in up to 25 feet and to raise the house above the waterline, making it as stable as a home on land.

“Many high net worth individuals have already expressed their interest in being the first to own and enjoy our liveable yacht. We are thrilled to organise private showings for potential buyers on Star Island, Miami Beach,” said Arnaud Luguet, chief technology officer and co-founder of ARKUP.

The “ready-to-move-in” vessel is furnished and decorated in style by the acclaimed Brazilian company Artefacto. The liveable yacht will be docked on Star Island during the coming months and will be available for rental in the Miami Bay area, so that anyone can now experience the ARKUP liveable yacht.

Charter services will be available beginning March 2019 and bookings can be made with House Yacht Living LLC, the exclusive broker of Arkup #1 for charters and sales. Visit for more information.
