Lexus Debuts Luxury Sport Yacht Concept

Lexus, the luxury vehicle division of Japanese car maker Toyota, is looking to expand its horizons into luxury yacht manufacturing. Aptly dubbed “Lexus Sport Yacht,” the idea to create a yacht came about when CEO Akio Toyoda was trying out one of the company’s marine division’s yachts (that use a Toyota engine). Toyoda wanted to create a sporty, luxurious yacht much like its Lexus sub-label.

This concept is a fully-functioning sea vehicle, and is constructed from carbon fiber by the Marquis-Carver Yacht Group in Wisconsin. It boasts a pair of V8 engines capable of 440 horsepower each.

The luxury sport yacht comes equipped with plenty of luxurious amenities. It features seating for eight with fold-out seats by the captain’s chair. The control panel is a pair of touchscreens, one in the wheel and one for instruments and other information. Underneath, the passenger cabin is filled with leather, wood, air conditioning, and comfortable seating complete with a shower.

The Lexus Sport Yacht concept is still a bespoke one-of-one, and won’t be released to the public anytime soon but the concept is likely a good indicator of things to come in the future in sea vehicle innovation.
