Lexus has announced plans to release a premium yacht incorporating the design of last year’s Sport Yacht concept. This wild news was delivered by Toyota executive vice president Shigeki Tomoyama at the Japan International Boat Show:
“Based on our amazing experiences in engineering, building, testing and showing the Lexus Sport Yacht concept last year, we’ve decided to take the next bold step of producing an all-new larger yacht that builds on the advanced nature of the concept while adding more comfort and living space,” Tomoyama said.
“We plan to start sales in the U.S. in the latter half of 2019, with sales in Japan following in the spring of 2020.”
The new yacht will be built by Marquis-Larson in Wisconsin, and will be a large 65-foot cruiser with “luxury staterooms below deck and entertaining space for up to 15 guests”.

Specifications, pricing and other details of the 65-foot yacht will be announced at a later date.
