Lexus is expanding beyond the road, collaborating with Wisconsin-based Marquis Yachts LLC to launch the flybridge cruiser 65-foot LY650. The LY650 uses a highly rigid composite hull combining carbon-fiber (CRFP) and glass (GFRP) reinforced plastic. A distinctive two-tone paint is available, highlighting the stunning, sleek exterior.
The gorgeous curves outside are reiterated inside. The magnificent interior is designed by Italians Nuvolari+Lenard, inspired by omotenashi, the Japanese hospitality that “anticipates and fulfills people’s needs,” per Lexus. Sweeping arcs and subtle Lexus “L” shapes run throughout the “interior real estate,” as Dan Lenard told me. The bow features a clever table and seating, ideal for entertaining and cruising the Intercoastal.
Marine-friendly Ultraleather textiles, glossy wood accents, and bright chrome combine with strategic lighting, providing a beautiful interior layout of dual captain’s seats, two sofas, and three elegant below-deck berths and heads with 6’6” headroom.
An espresso machine and wine fridge are tucked mid-stair, perfect for late-night drinks or early morning coffee.
The wide hull, powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS engines, provides excellent cruising, sharp handling, and stability. Dual helm stations offer triple monitors, multiple cameras, and pilot-supporting functions including fix-point position holding at sea and joystick control. Starting ~ $3.7 million.
