Shigeki Tomoyama, Lexus’ executive vice president, said his intention with the LY 650 is to deliver a “dream-like vision of the luxury lifestyle; one where the Lexus Yacht expands the potential of Lexus mobility to the ocean.” Lexus global president Yoshihiro Sawa hopes the vessel will help his company “explore new ways to deliver innovative and amazing experiences for our guests.”


Propelling this 65-footer is a Volvo-sourced IPS 1200 marine engine, which comes as standard, along with an optional Volvo IPS 1350 motor. Lexus expects the first LY 650 to be finished by the second half of 2019, with a public debut scheduled for sometime later that year.
