More Than Luxury Cars? The First Lexus Yacht!
In a bold move to show that a luxury car brand can stand for must more than four-wheeled conveyance, Lexus has announced they are diving into the megabuck world of ultra-luxury pleasure boating with the LY 650 yacht. Based on the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept first shown in January 2017, the LY 650 features unique styling and superb cruising performance. This LY 650 flagship yacht is the new embodiment of the Lexus “CRAFTED” philosophy, to which exquisite attention to detail and anticipatory hospitality are applied in every possible aspect. The shape of the hull, the abundant volume of the stern, and other elements, in addition to beautiful curved lines, give the LY 650 distinctive exterior styling. Collaboration with Italian yacht design studio Nuvolari Lenard has resulted in an advanced design and a comfortable interior living space that exemplifies high quality in every detail. The yacht rides on a light and highly rigid composite hull that combines CFRP (carbon fiber-reinforced plastic) and GFRP (glass fiber-reinforced plastic), and was jointly developed with Marquis Yachts LLC. Additionally, the LY 650 is equipped with LY-Link, an advanced connectivity technology for boating that shares timely information and provides control of various yacht functions. The LY 650 is built in collaboration with the craftspeople of Marquis Yachts in Pulaski, Wisconsin, USA. The new yacht will appear at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in Florida Oct. 30 – Nov. 3, 2019.
