Lexus LY 650 Luxury Yacht Priced at $3.5 Million

Lexus LY 650 Yacht

Milwaukee TV news TMJ4 has a new feature on the Marquis-Larson Boat Group, the company responsible for building the new Lexus 65-foot LY 650 luxury yacht:

There’s also a further interview with Josh Delforge, Marquis-Larson’s Vice President of Design & Engineering:

Beyond the early look at the new yacht, the biggest takeaway from the video is the price tag — Delforge ballparks the LY 650 at roughly $3.5 million USD, depending on options.

^^If it's just about the brand image, why should they spend unnecessary resources in making a unnecessarily complex boat? It will be a white elephant project not dissimilar to Honda Jet.

The MRJ is a trainwreck at this point. Mitsubishi is the opposite of Toyota in corporate culture. They spend lavishly, have a bloated workforce, and operates based on an outdated Zaibatsu model from the 1920s. MHI is only alive because the Japanese government needs to keep it afloat for national security. Toyota should keep away from the company as much as possible.
Ok. Forget Mitsubishi. I an not good at writing down my thoughts in a clear way. I apologize for the inconvenience and confusion.

Toyota could had bought a megayacht large enough to apply their MIRAI technology, carry an FCEV car, capable of refueling the FCEV, and helicopter landing. Then begin tests, before commercialization. But the final product should be a true Lexus.

Toyota should be recognized as capable of building zero emission mega-yachts.

“With our experience building ultra modern, ultra high quality boats for both Lexus and VanDutch, I feel we are in a unique position to offer a new Marquis brand that will become a significant player in this growing market,”

According to Rob Parmentier, President & CEO of the Marquis-Larson Boat Group, Marquis Yachts will discontinue its current line of semi-custom cruising boats and transition to an entirely new line for 2019.

The new Marquis is expected to debut at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (based in Florida) at an invitation only unveiling prior to the show.

The Show opens on Wednesday November 6, 2019.

I guess Lexus will have to ditch the absolutely gorgeous INTERSECT cultural theme from the boutique's space series, that have defined the signature of the brand.

Although, I find the interior and exterior styling of the LY650 simple and cool, it is not luxurious.

I apologize for my bitter criticism, but I believe Lexus can do a lot better than that, by a mile!

I wonder if the Lexus LY 650 will make an appearance there as well. Or if it'll be at the Miami Boat Show that will take place from Thursday 14 through Monday 18 February 2019. Both are local to me. I'd love to check it out if it makes an appearance.

How about just doing a luxury Yacht that people can purchase and use in North America? FCEV yacht to me would just a waste of resources and press thing, nobody would buy it... where would you service it?

You have to be able to use that Yacht and service it.

I disagree. Minimalism is very in right now, and the boat's roofline and interior treatments and finishes do remind me of my LS500. I'm actually glad they didn't try to force Lexus styling cues where they wouldn't work.

If I ever become unexpectedly rich I want one with... let's see, 1800 HP / 415 = exactly 4 V35As :-)

If it is convenient for the construction company, then I don't see why not! The earlier, the better. :thumbsup:

Do you mean a yacht a bit more pricier than LS500h? I didn't thought about that. It makes sense considering Toyota could had brought the Ponam series from Japanese market. It seems it is more preferable assigning the job to an already established yacht manufacturer.

Still though, the spindle grille is distinctively missing, don't you think?

Where would you put it that it'd work, though? I don't see any surface on that boat that would work with a spindle, and that's what I meant above about not forcing details that don't fit.
