So you’ve hit the big time, but you’re not flush enough to buy a mansion and a yacht.
(I think that’s a problem that we’d all like to have.)
On the other hand, yachts can travel, while mansions confine you to one part of the world. The struggle is real.
Well, no more! You can now buy a ‘house yacht’ for just $5,5 million (roughly R80,5 million).
Check it out:
Oddity Central with the specs:
Arkup, the world’s ultimate “house yacht”, is literally a floating villa that doubles as a luxury sea vessel, thanks to its two 100 kW/272 hp electrical engines. It features four bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, 4.5 bathrooms, a swimming platform, retractable deck, and a roof covered with solar panels that make it completely self sufficient in terms of electricity. Thanks to a rainwater purification system, the chances of the 4,000-gallon fresh water tank going dry are very small, so as long as you have plenty of food supplies, you can pretty much live off the grid for a long time.
It’s not designed for rough sea conditions, but it can rise above the swell, making it ideal for coastal waters.
Let’s take a look inside:
With a speed of seven knots (that’s only about 13 km/h, but still) and a range of 20 nautical miles (37 kilometres) that can be further increased with additional battery banks or backup generators, you won’t be travelling far.
You will have the best sea-view in the world, though, and unlike regular yachts, you don’t feel any rocking when you’re inside.
Park it next to your Porsche yacht if you really want to make the neighbours jealous.
