Lexus Just Unleashed a Stunning 1,000 HP Luxury Yacht
Dream boat alert!
The 65-foot LY 650 is set to join the LS sedan, LX SUV and LC coupe has fourth Lexus flagship vehicle. Executive vice president Shigeki Tomoyama commissioned the Marquis-Larson Boat Group to “present a dream-like vision of the luxury lifestyle; one where the Lexus Yacht expands the potential of Lexus mobility to the ocean.”
Viewed from the profile, the subtle rise and fall of the yacht’s quintessentially Lexus lines flow into rising, broad hips of the rear.
The expert bespoke builders continue luxe design features into the interior. A roomy main lounge area boasts a thoughtfully decorated bar area complete with stainless steel accents, stylish seating, a flat screen TV and walls of windows that offer sweeping panoramic views.
According to Forbes, below-deck sleeping quarters and staterooms can accommodate up to 15 guests, making the ship a viable option for multiday excursions.
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.
It’s safe to say that Lexus’ flagship yacht is going to be plenty quick.
The first Lexus LY 650 is set to make its worldwide debut in late 2019, but you can get your first look at this striking dream boat in the gallery above.
