Pulaski, WI (September 7, 2018)
- 65-foot Lexus yacht joins the LS sedan, LX SUV and LC coupé as the fourth Lexus flagship
- Lexus LY 650 is the first production maritime expression of Lexus design language, L-finesse
- Exploration into non-automotive ventures continues beyond Lexus involvement in culinary, film, design
and other select luxury lifestyle experiences
Crafting amazing automobiles is something Lexus has pursued relentlessly, as evidenced by the beautiful hand-pleated door panels in the LS 500 or the complex paint process, inspired by the morpho butterfly, that results in dazzling Structural Blue. And crafting every touch point around the Lexus brand is an opportunity Lexus continues to seize. This maritime application is another proof point in Lexus’ storied history of exploring new frontiers both inside and outside the automotive industry.
Lexus continually evaluates what constitutes a luxury experience and has, as a result, ventured into the worlds of culinary, design, film, and more as alternative opportunities to interact with the brand. Driven by the vision of Lexus International president Yoshihiro Sawa for a brand that “explores new ways to deliver innovative and amazing experiences for our guests,” Lexus has partnered with some of the world’s finest purveyors of experience to further celebrate the phrase, Experience Amazing.
And now, Lexus returns to the water with its next expression of a Lexus yacht in the form of the LY 650. Bearing the most contemporary expression of Lexus design language, L-finesse, applied beyond the world of automobiles, the production LY 650 picks up where the stunning Lexus Sport Yacht Concept left off.
