The company Lexus disclosed information about the “fourth flagship”. They became the first serial marine vessel of the brand – luxury yacht LY 650. The novelty, according to the company, being the most exquisite expression of L-finesse design language, is part of the project “exploring the possibilities of a world of luxury and an active lifestyle”.
The construction of the 19.96-meter Lexus LY 650 will be carried out by specialists of the American shipyard Marquis-Larson Boat Group. When creating the yacht, the designers sought inspiration in last year’s concept of a speed boat – the Sport Yacht, which debuted at a special Lexus event in Miami.
The yacht is equipped with three cabins with six beds. The volume of the tank Lexus LY 650 is 3785 liters, capacity for fresh water – 852 liters. As the power plant uses a 12.8-liter in-line six-cylinder diesel engine Volvo Penta with a capacity of 1000 horsepower. For a surcharge, an assembly with a reinforced IPS30 drive is available, which is equivalent to a 1350-horsepower propeller engine.
The conceptual boat Lexus Sport Yacht, in contrast, was equipped with engines Lexus: two 477-strong atmospheric V8 volume of five liters, which are also put on the “charged” sedan GS F and the coupe RC F. With them, the yacht could accelerate to 43 knots (about 80 kilometers per hour).
