Who wouldn’t want to live in a livable yacht that can survive a hurricane?

As sea levels rise it might be wise to invest in one of these floating homes that can reportedly survive a hurricane.

The Arkup company has floated their concept for the solar-powered livable yachts, which are expected to cost about $3.5 million USD when they hit the market later this year. They cover 4,350-square-foot, which includes two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and laundry room. There’s also satellite television and Wi-Fi antennas to keep their owners connected to the outside world. Arkup also has plans for cheaper models costing $1-2 million. “We came with the idea of providing a product that would offer people the possibility to embrace a completely new and exclusive lifestyle on the water,” Arkup co-founder Nicholas Derouin told Inman News. “The idea is not just to live by it, but to live on it, and while many people have waterfront condos and enjoy the view of the water, with this you can be on the water and live in the view.” The designs, by dutch architect Koen Olthuis, debuted at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show earlier this year, gaining international interest from individuals and resort owners. The first one is already under construction.
