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.)

Too much effort into something that not going to be produced
Twin LC V8s are only good for 49 MPH in the water? That's crazy.

One of many Behind the Scenes Clips...This was an extremly high level event with Aiko Toyoda in attendance. It was an honor being there and it was incredible to be given full access to the #lexuslens event.

We got to about 32 knots in it...I'll post the video riding in it this weekend. It tops out around 43 knots....

This morning I was invited to an exclusive shoot with it in Miami with the LC. I'll post that soon as well. The Lexus Sport Yacht Concept will then make its way to California then off to Japan.

This murdered me.

Have to say, the yacht was a very cool launch and part of a very interesting event. I'm writing up my coverage, and I can safely say it won't be for everyone -- Lexus went all-out for a very specific audience, and I think it was excellent.
