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.
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.
The interiors are highly reconfigurable and designed to support leisure, research and commercial use. There is sufficient onboard storage for up to three months at sea.
The Arksen 85 offers 6000+ miles of cruising on a single tank of fuel (around 16k litres).
All Arksen vessels have extensive solar capabilities. The Arksen 85 solar array can be up to 8.1kW and solar only propulsion at low speeds.
Critical systems monitoring.
Autonomy ready. We are working towards semi and fully autonomous vessels. In the future we expect to be able to work with our owners to have their vessels delivered to a given destination at a given time, allowing Arksen Mission Control to navigate the vessel at optimal speeds for the prevailing conditions.
Research & Sensors Onboard
Every Arksen vessel is fitted with a modular and flexible monitoring system to analyse the water quality continuously. These include a flow-through system, often seen on ferries, to automatically feedback data to institutions around the world to live track crucial water parameters.
All Arksen vessels are designed to offer sea kindliness, with a hull designed to offer true stability and options for three forms of stabilisation.
The diesel / electric propulsion option is one of four options available.
Recovery from capsize
The hull shape, stability curve and lack of a keel to allow the vessel to slide sideways to absorb wave energy makes the Arksen range extremely capable in big seas.
Long life service
Our vessels are designed for 50-year service life. Are recyclable at the end of life and are built using sustainable materials.
Exceptional hull efficiency
In a calm sea at 7 knts the power requirement for the Arksen 85 is just 12kw (the equivalent of 4 kettles).
Fast average cruising speeds of 11 to 12 knots.
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.
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.
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.
