Lexus has taken the wraps off its LY 650 sports yacht. Hailed as the first production maritime expression of its L-finesse design language, it continues the brand’s involvement in non-automotive luxury lifestyle products.
The LY 650 yacht picks up where the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept, first seen in January 2017, left off. Several key features from that 42-foot Sport Yacht concept have made their way onto the LY 650, including the pronounced bow, curved deck accents and accentuated aft hips.
Encouraged by an enthusiast response, Executive Vice President Shigeki Tomoyama pushed ahead with a plan to “present a dream-like vision of the luxury lifestyle; one where the Lexus Yacht expands the potential of Lexus mobility to the ocean.”
65-foot in overall length, with a 19-foot beam form, the sports yacht is being built by the Marquis-Larson Boat Group. Based in Pulaski, WI, Marquis-Larson was chosen because of its artisanal craftsmanship, modern technology and design expertise. Many of Marquis-Larson’s boat builders have been with the company for 30 years.
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.
