DESIGNED FOR EXPLORERS. MADE FOR ADVENTURE.
Arksen vessels are designed and built to allow owners to explore the globe, with the confidence, comfort, independence and capability expected from a serious, innovative, long-range cruising yacht. Robustness, reliability, efficiency and lifecycle sustainability are key Arksen attributes. Every Arksen is designed for simple operation and low maintenance, with redundancy and remote monitoring of critical systems. Conscious to reduce the burden on both the owner and the environment, each aspect of the build, systems and services to support ownership are carefully planned out to optimise the use of the vessel to enable life-changing adventures with minimal impact.
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.

We know that one of the best things about owning an Arksen is the stunning scenery you will see from onboard, so we have designed multiple seating areas where you can sit and soak up your surroundings.
AFT DECK DINING AREA The aft bench is reversible to face forward or aft. The table can be lowered and, with a cushion infill, creates a lounging pad. To port is a BBQ/grill, fridge and sink.
FORWARD SEATING AREAS There is a bench seat up on the bridge deck for panoramic views when underway, or for privacy when moored. On the main deck there is a large lounging area with a coffee table that can be converted into a sun bed. Forward of this seating is additional space for truly stunning alfresco dining. A bimini can also be placed over this area when required.
BRIDGE DECK DINING AREA Aft of the bridge deck is a third outdoor dining area within easy reach of galley via the internal stairs and with access to the 360 degree external walkway.
BRIDGE DECK LOUNGING PAD The central table can be lowered and a cushion insert forms another large lounging area, for ultimate relaxation.

The Arksen 85 is built in partnership with Wight Shipyard Company, one of Europe’s leading shipyards with an established reputation for providing vessels built to the highest possible standards. The Wight Shipyard Company has a wealth of knowledge spanning commercial, defence and superyacht projects. There are very few shipyards that have achieved success across all three of these sectors, and it is Wight Shipyard Company’s comprehensive experience in all of them that sets it apart. The rare ability of combining the best elements of each sector results in the creation of the ultimate Explorer Vessels in partnership with Arksen.
We take responsibility to ensure that the materials used in building our vessels have as minimal an environmental cost as possible, both during production and use, and that they are fully recyclable at the end of life. This is why the aluminium used in building Arksen Explorer Vessels contains up to 40% recycled content. Other reasons for using aluminium are:
The Arksen Explorer Series benefits from combining the best aspects of luxury yachting and commercial shipbuilding. The stylish exterior and luxurious interior are combined with a faster build time, lower operating costs, greater reliability plus engineering and construction which has already been proven in the commercial sector
