Arksen Series


Designed for explorers and made for adventure, our vessels have been designed to meet the requirements for true explorer vessels in the 20 to 30m range, and that can be manned by minimal crew. Designed from the ground up to take you to wherever your next great adventure lies in an efficient, reliable and trusted platform.


Class leading

On almost every level, the Arksen vessels beat the competition. On the strength, range, environmental impact, life-cycle management, usage opportunities and maintenance, the Arksen Series stand out. All interior layouts are easily reconfigured so they can be used for leisure, research and commercial purposes. Through the infusion of the latest technologies and ownership models, we have created a series of platforms that we hope will inspire the next generation of explorers to embark on their dream adventures.

Arksen 70


The Arksen 70 has been optimised for efficiency in hull design, as have her larger sisterships, while retaining a vast amount of interior space to accommodate up to eight onboard whilst retaining the full beam master cabin.



Our design DNA is strong across the fleet, no one wants an ugly boat.

small size, big capability

The Arksen 70 is a pocket explorer vessel, her size will allow you to access
areas most vessels of this class would have to deploy a tender to see and discover.

Arksen 70 general arrangements

Further arrangements are available, please contact us to configure the perfect layout for your personal adventures.


Arksen 85

The Arksen 85 has been designed to accommodate up to 14 explorers depending on the interior layout. Her enclosed flybridge offers spectacular views of your surroundings, be it a secluded bay in the Caribbean or a remote corner of the Arctic.



Whether you are considering a world cruise to some of the remotest
corners of the oceans, or a two-year research expedition, the Arksen 85
can be configured a multitude of ways. Even after the initial fit out.

planning for the future, now

All Arksen vessels are designed from the very beginning to incorporate
a maximum potential for autonomy and harnessing renewable energy
sources, primarily through solar panels.

arksen 85 general arrangments

There are almost endless configurations available for any Arksen Vessel, the platform and clever design allows for a wide array of uses and user experiences.


Arksen 100

The Arksen 100, the largest of the Arksen Series, can house up to 14 explorers with crew accommodation forward and an expansive full beam master cabin. Her large lazarette can accommodate all equipment that the intrepid adventurers need to explore their latest destination.


future proof

With an anticipated life cycle of in excess of 50 years, the technology
and systems onboard have all been specified with the future in mind.
The Ark control system allows for remote monitoring and peace of
mind 24/7 anywhere in the world.

Long distance

The 100 is by far the most versatile platform in the fleet. Ideally suited to ultra long
distance cruising, and supporting a vast array of ancillary equipment and support craft.
