Instant Success: Lexus Sells First LY 650 Luxury Yacht

Lexus LY 650 Yacht

Rob Parmentier, CEO of the Marquis-Larson Boat Group, has announced that Lexus has found the first customer for its new 65-foot LY 650 yacht — here’s a quote from Trade Only Trade:

“We’ve already sold the first hull,” says Parmentier. “It’s a more traditional build than the 42 [foot Lexus Sports Yacht Concept], which was built like a spaceship with all sorts of high-tech features. This boat won’t be as complex as that 42.”

For some perspective, Mercedes released their Arrow460-Grandturismo yacht earlier this year with a limited production run of 10 boats — one unit for each country where the yacht is available for sale.

(Another note — the article also mentions that the yacht’s interior was designed by Italian firm Nuvolari-Lenard, with help from Lexus engineers.)
