Yacht is a symbol of a chic, extravagant lifestyle. Picture sailing with your beloved and friends on a private yacht, out to the boundless sea, enjoying and savouring an ultimate luxurious experience in an intimate and cozy space, taking on an exquisite, high privacy journey and living life to the fullest.
Recently, more luxury car manufacturers have also launched luxury yachts. Lexus – which aspires to be a true luxury lifestyle brand – decided to go beyond the automobile and ventured into the worlds of culinary, design and film, fusing advanced technology and craftsmanship to provide an irreplaceable experience that stimulates the senses and exceeds owner expectations.
The new luxury Lexus yacht LY 650 is the first production marine vessel to use L-finesse, the design language of Lexus, and is joining the LS sedan, LX SUV and LC coupe. The LY 650 flybridge cruiser retains the vibrant form and beautiful curved lines of the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept and is both dynamic and sporty. Its production is driven by Lexus’s Executive Vice President, Shigeki Tomoyama’s desire to, “present a dream-like vision of the luxury lifestyle; one where the Lexus Yacht expands the potential of Lexus mobility to the ocean.”
Users can indulge in a custom Mark Levinson® Surround Sound System with a subwoofer system creates an immersive concert hall- like acoustic space in the salon.
Measuring 65 feet in overall length with a 19-foot beam, the LY 650 has a distinguished style found in the strong, pronounced bow, curved deck accents and accentuated aft hips. Its coupe-like roofline and accentuated aft hips also stress the high level of its cruising performance.
The interior space fuses an avantgarde design, featuring a bright, white-theme for a sense of openness, while making use of curving lines and creative lighting to provide a comfortable sense of envelopment. The salon features dual captain’s seats and sofas set forward and a galley set aft. Below the salon are three elegant berths with 6 feet and 6 inches of headroom, each with a private head with shower.
In terms of performance, the LY 650 features twin Volvo Penta IPS engines (1350/1200/1050). By integrating these with a unique underwater-hull shape achieved through the application of computational fluid dynamics modeling, Lexus was able to achieve not only high output and low fuel consumption, but also exceptional cruising stability and maneuverability. It is also equipped with LY-Link, an advanced technology for boat connectivity, which provides timely information and can be used to monitor the vessel and have notifications sent via text message should an abnormality be detected. It also enhances convenience by enabling users to remotely control various components on the yacht via a smartphone.
01 The elegant berths are spacious, each with a private head with shower. 02 Sandwich panels with excellent soundproofing qualities are used in the main walls to help ensure exceptional quietness for uninterrupted conversation. 03 The underwater hull and the upper part of the hull are constructed of CFRP for lightness and high rigidity, contributing to its remarkable high-speed performance.
