Sleek Luxury Yacht From Lexus

Curious as to what a Lexus vessel might look like, Toyota motors president Akio Toyoda decided to go ahead and build one. The Lexus Sport Yach is the result. Created by the Lexus Design Center and built by Marquis-Carver in Wisconsin, this 42-foot, eight passenger yacht has the same combination of power and luxury as the company’s cars. It’s powered by a pair of 5.0L V8 engines producing 880 total hp, enough to hit speeds of up to 43 knots, helped along by CFRP construction that saves more than a ton over a fiberglass build. The cockpit is home to a color touchscreen that lets the pilot monitor and control all aspects of the ship, and high-end finishes of leather, wood, and glass offer the same comforts you’ll find in Lexus’ land-locked transports.
