LEXUS TEASES LY 650 LUXURY YACHT
Lexus prepares to glide on the water with its first expression of a Lexus production yacht, the LY 650. Bearing the most contemporary expression of Lexus design language, L-finesse, applied beyond the world of automobiles, the production LY 650 picks up where the stunning Lexus Sport Yacht Concept left off. To make this dream-like vision a reality, Lexus selected Marquis Yachts to build, sell and service the Lexus yacht based largely on their extensive experience with bespoke boat building and their proven capability, confirmed by their work bringing the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept to life. Lexus releases today exclusive images of the first LY 650 being constructed by Marquis Yachts, based in Pulaski, WI, USA.
Marquis Yachts is the ideal partner to bring the second chapter of Lexus yacht design to fruition with their thorough blend of artisanal craftsmanship, modern technology and inspired design. Complementing Lexus’ renowned heritage of Takumi craftspeople who are supremely skilled in their roles, Marquis’ craftsmanship backbone is clearly demonstrated by their masterful boat builders, many of whom have been with the company for 30 years. The first completed Lexus LY 650 is expected to make its global debut in the second half of 2019.
