Drive Your Lexus…On Water
September 12, 2018
The 65-foot Lexus LY 650 sports yacht is the first maritime expression of the luxury brand’s design language called L-finesse. It joins the LS sedan, LX SUV and LC coupé as Lexus’ fourth flagship yacht. We list down reasons why it’s time to upgrade your boat to this state-of-the-art, high-powered vessel of the sea
Lexus has always pushed the boundaries to give their clientele fresh and exciting luxury experiences. Over the years, they have created automobiles that have captured a following of car lovers for its performance, stylish design and top-of-the-line features. A recent foray into maritime vessels promises no less. Under the leadership of Lexus International President Yoshihiro Sawa, the LY650 is envisioned to be the most complex of the company’s yacht expressions. Completion is expected by the second half of 2019. The yacht will be 65-feet in overall length, with a pronounced bow, a curved deck, and accentuated aft hips. The yacht’s profile, will be distinguished by the distinct Lexus roofline, adapted for the sea.
The Japanese company has partnered with Marquis-Larson Boat Group to realize the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept, crafting a boat with technological advancements, with as much consideration for comfort. The new expression will have three staterooms that can accommodate up to six people comfortably. A spacious salon above deck will be equipped with all the modern conveniences, including but not limited to a television, dining area, a mini kitchen, and bar.
Lexus regards their partner company as the ideal companion in “bringing the second chapter of Lexus yacht design to fruition with their thorough blend of artisanal craftsmanship, modern technology and inspired design. Complementing Lexus’ renowned heritage of takumi craftspeople, who are supremely skilled in their roles, Marquis’ craftsmanship backbone is clearly demonstrated by their masterful boat builders, many of whom have been with the company for 30 years.”
