Lexus LY 650 Luxury Yacht Aims To Be The LS Of The Ocean

Lexus announced plans to build a luxury yacht earlier this year and now the company has released renderings of the upcoming LY 650.

Set to become one of the most expensive Lexus models ever created, the LY 650 follows in the footsteps of the Sport Yacht concept which was introduced in 2017.

Lexus didn’t say much about the luxury yacht, but it measures 65′ 5″ (19.96 meters) long and 18′ 8″ (5.72 m) wide. It will be built by the Marquis-Larson Boat Group which has “extensive experience with bespoke boat building” and helped to create the original Sport Yacht concept.

Unlike the concept, the production yacht will be massive and have three different levels. Lexus didn’t release renderings of the lower level, but said the LY 650 will have three state rooms that can sleep up to six people. The yacht will also have three different bathrooms.

The main level is ultra-luxurious and images show the yacht will have leather couches, stylish flooring and a retractable flat screen television. We can also see a small bar area, a decent-sized kitchen and a high-tech cockpit with two captain chairs.

Outside, the main deck has wood flooring and three seating areas at the front of the boat. At the rear, there’s another seating area and stairs to the upper deck which has a second cockpit as well as a wraparound couch.

The LY 650 will be offered with two different Volvo-sourced engines including the IPS 1200 and IPS 1350. Regardless of which engine is selected, both will be fed by a fuel tank which holds 1,000 gallons (3,785 liters) of diesel.

Lexus didn’t mention launch details this time around, but the company has previously said U.S. sales will begin in the second half of 2019.

    Good question. Toyota boats usually have proprietary marine engines.

    The exterior is sharp. The interior design is borderline dated. Trying a bit too hard to incorporate the “L” into everything.
