Lexus’ Supercharged Yacht For The High Seas

Lexus Yacht

Automobile brand, Lexus is taking its first step into the manufacturing of supercharged sporty yacht

The 12.7m yacht is powered by two marinised versions of the engine used in top-of-the-range Lexus cars, giving the vessel a maximum speed of 43 knots. Designed in collaboration with Wisconsin yacht builder Marquis-Carver, it features a hull made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic like that used in the Lexus LFA supercar, while the standing-height forward cabin is trimmed in Lexus leather with wood and glass detailing.

If interest reaches a sufficiently high level, the boat will go into production and become another striking example of luxury car marques such as Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz and Bugatti making futuristic forays into the motorboating world.

This is Lexus’s first endeavour into the world of sports yachts.
