Lexus LY 650 Luxury Yacht is Crafted in the Spirit of Amazing
Lexus returns to the water with its next expression of a Lexus yacht in the form of the LY 650.
Crafting amazing automobiles is something Lexus has pursued relentlessly; every touch point around the Lexus brand is an opportunity Lexus continues to seize. This maritime application is another proof point in Lexus’ storied history of exploring new frontiers both inside and outside the automotive industry.
Bearing the most contemporary expression of Lexus design language, L-finesse, applied beyond the world of automobiles, the production LY 650 picks up where the stunning Lexus Sport Yacht Concept left off.
Encouraged by the robust public interest in the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept, a follow-up maritime effort was fuelled by Executive Vice President; Shigeki Tomoyama’s desire to “present a dream-like vision of the luxury lifestyle; one where the Lexus Yacht expands the potential of Lexus mobility to the ocean.”
Making this dream-like vision a reality, Marquis-Larson Boat Group was selected to build, sell and service the next Lexus yacht based largely on their extensive experience with bespoke boat building and their proven capability, confirmed by their work bringing the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept to life.
Several of the most attractive features from the 42-foot concept have made their way onto the LY 650. In 65-foot overall length, 19-foot beam form, the newest Lexus yacht has a distinguished style found in the strong, pronounced bow, curved deck accents. Viewed from the profile, the elegant rise and fall of the yacht’s distinctly Lexus roofline flows into rising, broad hips of the rear section.
The first completed Lexus LY 650 is expected to be finished in the second half of 2019 and will make its global debut late in the year.
