The 20-meter yacht LY 650 is the fourth flagship of the brand after being presented to the public sedan LS, crossover LX and coupe LC. Lexus creates its own history beneath our eyes by going beyond the automotive industry.

The first attempts to get into the yachting industry were made in 2017 when the company presented a prototype of a Sport Yacht. The length of the vessel is 13 meters. It is equipped with two V8 petrol engines with volume of 5-liter and a total capacity of 885 hp.

Lexus LY 650 is to be significantly different from its predecessor. Volvo Penta IPS engines are the main feature of the new Lexus model. Their capacity is more than 1600 HP. With a relatively small size of the vessel, there are three cabins with six seats, a flybridge with a hardtop and a large recreation area with a swimming pool — everything you need for a full luxury yacht.

The volume of the fuel tank will be 3785 liters, the capacity of fresh water — 852 liters. This will allow you to go on full and multi-day sea trips.

Full production of the new premium yachts is planned this year, and while following the renders, the company has already released a teaser dedicated to the new model. The production version of the Sport Yacht Concept is designed as LY 650 and means that Luxury Yacht 65 feet or 20 meters long.

The shipyard Marquis Yachts will be engaged to the production of LY 650. The work has already begun and is going to be finished in the latter half of 2019. As the exact production of models as the part where the yacht will be presented for the first time are not specified yet.
