OUR MISSION

Together with our partners, we are showcasing the future of sustainable waterbased living and marine innovation while providing real solutions in the present.  We represent marine-based companies and organizations who are passionate about our core capabilities and the waters we operate in.


LIFE OFF THE GRID      Our off-the-grid alliance combines aspirational on-the-water lifestyle  

                                                    concepts with the logistics of transportation, supply provision, and    

                                                    comprehensive support. 


MARINE MOBILITY      We are creating true mobility through our aeromarine capabilities, making 

                                                    next generation marine real estate and lifestyles possible.

                                                    Live off the  grid but still have easy access to wherever you want to be. 


RECREATION                   Our alliance includes Preferred Partners working across the marine and 

                                                   aviation industries.   We are facilitating living on, working on, and enjoying      

                                                   our  waters; defining the quintessential coastal and  waterbased lifestyle.


FUTURE CITIES               We are passionate about the future of waterbased living and mobility to     

                                                    support the  sustainability and resiliency of cities in the future. 

 

SUSTAINABILITY           In order to succeed, we must respect our waters and offset any marine         

                                                   activity with attention to  and action towards  our water, our environment 

                                                   and our local ecosystems.  Collectively, we hold this corporate social          

                                                   responsibility as a core pillar to our  organization.

Arkup Livable Yachts combine the best attributes of yachts, floating houses and waterfront villas, with the added benefits of being self-sufficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly. Dock in a metropolitan marina or anchor in a tranquil bay. When elevated on its hydraulic pilings, the vessel is as stable as a house, and protected from the action of the waves. 


The Arkup Livable Yacht was conceived to be sustainable and “future-proof”, from its ability to withstand or avoid extreme weather events, to its self-contained systems that allow fully off-the-grid living.

OFF GRID ADDRESSING

what3words is a new global addressing system. It has divided the entire world into a grid of 3m x 3m (9ft x 9ft) squares and given each one a unique address made of 3 words from the dictionary. This means that everywhere in the world can now be found using just 3 words. 


For example, https://what3words.com/connects.sailor.composer is the 3 word address for the one of the preferred meetup spots for WaterBasedLiving.Org's Members. 


This is particularly useful when thinking about water-based living as every remote location on the water already has an address and can be found easily using the free what3words app or map-site

VISION

URBAN GROWTH AND RISING SEAS ARE AMONG THE KEY CHALLENGES FOR OUR GENERATION.


OUR SOLUTION IS TO PRESENT AND PROMOTE AN INNOVATIVE AND FORWARD-THINKING CONCEPT OF LIFE ON WATER  FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW.

CHALLENGES

Increasing urban growth and traffic jams, sea-level rise and floods are challenges of the future, especially for coastal living. We need to find new solutions for both housing and transportation whilst utilizing the waterways. 

SOLUTIONS

We believe that the solution is to live on and with the water. We promote a new way of life made of mobility and independence that will allow people to stay connected to the city, and in turn, to our most valuable resource.

MISSION

Our mission is to propose housing and transportation solutions for the cities of tomorrow. We offer a range of complementary solutions to rethink urban life and mobility.

OPPORTUNITIES

We strive to develop a pioneering concept of sustainable resilient floating communities and coastal living that can expand and evolve easily to adapt to urban growth rates, whilst reinventing our ways of transportation and life logistics. 

COLLABORATION

By working with local stakeholders and organizations working in this space we can combine our efforts to ensure the betterment of our waterways.

ADVANTAGES

Live life in 3D. Say goodbye to traffic jams when using new ways of transportation. Be greener living off-the-grid and lowering your carbon footprint.
