The car manufacturer Lexus has launched a 19,94 metre flybridge cruiser yacht developed in partnership with superyacht designer Nuvolari Lenard. LY 650 yacht is Lexus first-ever superyacht project and it’s completely outstanding. Its development took two years and a half and will be presented at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this October. Built in collaboration with Marquis Yachts, the yacht has a beam of 5,76 metres. (Marquis Yachts builds the yachts at its yard in Pulaski, Wisconsin.) CovetED Magazine invites you to get to know this incredible superyacht project and its luxury features.
Superyacht design studio Nuvolari Lenard developed the yacht. In 2017, Lexus unveiled a sport yacht concept for the first time. So this superyacht project is faithful to that. It is constructed of carbon fibre reinforced plastic for weight saving combined with glass fibre reinforced plastic. It was jointly developed with Marquis Yachts.
In addition, accommodation is for a total of six guests in three main deck cabins. Also, the interior features bespoke furnishings, real wood trim and “curved flowing lines” and sports a “white colour theme to increase the sense of space and openness”. There are a range of propulsion options. Twin Volvo IPS engines of either 1,050, 1,200 or 1,350hp powers the yacht for a top possible speed of 31.4 knots.
Meanwhile, this new model will be available to buy in the US from October 30. Lexus chief branding officer Akio Toyoda said: “The LY 650 symbolises the challenge Lexus has taken up in its aspiration to become a true luxury lifestyle brand, venturing beyond the automobile.
“I am truly looking forward to seeing the LY 650 display its beauty on oceans around the globe. As a mobility company, we are pursuing new possibilities for movement, even on the sea.”
