The Ultimate Overlander

Built on the unstoppable Unimog, the Arksen U1700 is your fully equipped, luxury platform designed to take you anywhere. The perfect platform for four adults or a family of 5 to explore, sleep, relax and work in comfort anywhere on the planet.


Adventure Without Limits

Our upgraded and restored Mercedes Unimog delivers a modern analogue experience with old school simplicity to give you the confidence to tackle uncharted territory and find new adventure.

The 6-seat, extended cab is fully sound insulated, air conditioned and trimmed with premium marine grade vegan leather to deliver the comfort you expect. Modern audio, connectivity and camera systems coupled with drivetrain upgrades bring the Unimog’s legendary capability up to date.


Enjoy the Destination

As with Arksen’s vessels, the Arksen U1700’s interior creates both sanctuary from the wildest weather, and the opportunity to connect with the environment.

Marine inspired aesthetics and finishes create a new premium feel, while maintaining the full wipe down practicality needed in the wild. Seating for 5, a 270 degree view, along with a full kitchen and bathroom and ample storage create the ideal bolt hole. The outside kitchen, shower, awning and infotainment system extend your living space in finer weather.
