First Arksen 85 Explorer Vessel Sold

Arksen have today announced that the first Arksen 85 explorer vessel has been sold. Scheduled for delivery in spring 2022, Project Ocean is a remarkably capable and efficient vessel designed to access and explore far-flung destinations with an ‘off-grid’ functionality optimised for family use.

Thrilled with the level of interest in the Arksen 85, the company will begin the build of the second vessel in April with delivery scheduled for late 2022. Additionally, a third 85 will begin late this year for delivery in early 2023.

To meet the client brief for a family home on the ocean, the team at Design Unlimited have developed a custom interior that blends comfort with the practicalities necessary for successful long-range cruising. Guests are brought closer to their external surroundings with near-uninterrupted panoramic views from the main saloon and bridge deck. The lower deck offers accommodation for up to 10 in four en-suite cabins, including a full-beam owner’s cabin with a multi-purpose snug and library for remote working.

By working closely with the owners on materials and details, we have developed an eclectic and comfortable interior that takes inspiration from boutique hotels and Nordic landscapes. These influences have been implemented through the careful use of timbers, textured fabrics and brass hardware.” Mark Tucker, Creative Director of Design Unlimited.

Project Ocean, is currently in build at Wight Shipyard Co.
