Today we take you to glamorous South Beach in Miami, Florida to tour a truly one-of-a-kind offering. At 400 Alton Road sits the Arkup, a $5.5 million yacht house powered entirely by solar energy. The floating villa has 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, an extendable deck for entertaining large groups, and a full kitchen - all with the freedom and functionality of a yacht. Feel like a quick trip to the Caribbean? Take your house with you. Some rough waters in the forecast? Elevate the entire yacht with the custom hydraulic system. If you’ve pondered what the evolution of luxury sustainable living may look like, the Arkup feels like looking into the future.

The only thing you can have more burdensome than a luxury home is a yacht. With this thing you get all the troubles at a high, high price.

So global elites get these and peasants get a pod, insects for food and cats for offspring in an effort to save the world in 12 years. Sounds fair.

alex caimi (16 days ago)
here is a thought....this house is actually a boat therefore its hull should be cleaned once a year from sea weed, marine bacteria to prevent damages and rust. How are they going to do that once settled in?
I just wonder.....

so a $5 million money pit… Well if I had $1 billion I'd buy it… It's going to be nothing but trouble in the future. Give it 10 or 20 years I wonder if it will even exist. Then try selling it.

What about toilet waste? Where does that go? Is it broken down chemically and released into the water? Do we need approval from local city council before we anchor and park? Not that I have $5.5mil spare to buy this floating house but somebody gotta ask!

It'd be so easy to get murdered there. Someone just drives on their boat to your house, climbs in through the window, kills you and then tosses your body into the water. There'd be no trace of them coming to your house, and your body would decompose quickly.

What a truly clean and ingenious design. Although such a residence would be out of reach for many of us, I really do love the way the architecture and design has incorporated so many ergonomic and environmental advantages. Being completely self-dependent on its own solar/battery setup is amazing, the fact that you can raise it, pilot it, and indeed run the entire crib with the solar generated power is a very powerful selling point. What really sells this property though, is actually the host. I'm not sure who this gentleman is, but his charisma, calmness and clear concise method of speaking is definitely 100% class. He points out everything a prospective buyer would want to know, yet also gives us the juicy little tidbits, as well as some stylistic flare here and there... All the while being very eloquent and easy to follow. I love the boat-mansion... the design, execution and delivery, all perfect 👌🏼and the host is absolutely outstanding 💯 Cheers! 🥂
