This is the LY 650, a first luxury yacht by the Japanese car company Lexus. Designed by the Lexus internal team, the idea was to find ways of exploring luxury and active lifestyles.
Power is provided by two marine-spec versions of the 5.0-liter Lexus V8 engine, seen in the RC F coupé and GS F saloon performance models and the new LC 500 coupé. Performance specs are forthcoming, but a press release lists the 12.8-liter, in-line 6-cylinder Volvo IPS 1350 as an optional power plant. The 1,000-horsepower maritime engine is the most powerful Volvo has ever made and is designed to service watercraft nearly twice the size of LY 650.
According to Forbes, below-deck sleeping quarters and staterooms can accommodate up to 15 guests, making the ship a viable option for multiday excursions. Present a dream-like vision of the luxury lifestyle one where the Lexus yacht expands the potential of Lexus mobility to the ocean, this was the words of executive vice president Shigeki Tomoyama for this amazing yacht. Viewed from the profile, the subtle rise and fall of the yacht’s quintessentially Lexus lines flow into rising, broad hips of the rear.
