Lexus, which is owned by Toyota and is known for its high-end luxury cars, has just rolled out an eye-ball grabbing yacht! On Thursday, the company held the world premiere of its flagship luxury yacht, the 65-foot Lexus LY 650 in Boca Raton, Florida. The sleek new watercraft is based on a concept first shown in January 2017. The LY 650 yacht is the new embodiment of the Lexus “CRAFTED” philosophy, to which exquisite attention to detail and anticipatory hospitality are applied in every possible aspect, explained the company. The new yacht will appear at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in Florida Oct. 30 – Nov. 3, 2019.

The powertrain features twin Volvo Penta IPS3 engines (1350/1200/1050). By integrating these with a unique underwater-hull shape achieved through the application of computational fluid dynamics modelling, Lexus was able to achieve not only high output and low fuel consumption, but also exceptional cruising stability and manoeuvrability.
