Lexus introduces the LY 680 luxury yacht

TOKYO: Lexus takes to the oceans again, so to speak, with the announcement of the new LY 680 luxury yacht, a product that is an evolution over the LY 650.

Lexus aims to be a luxury lifestyle brand and the flagship luxury yacht is the embodiment of the Lexus design philosophy "Crafted."

The concept for the luxury yacht is "to feel like a hideout in the middle of the sea, providing a space where discerning customers can feel free and at ease."

The LY 680 exterior embodies the Lexus design philosophy of L-finesse, and the interior has been crafted to provide a comfortable living space. In terms of performance, Lexus aims for confidence inspiring cruising performance, offering stable maneuverability, excellent ride comfort, and quietness.


The LY 650 was introduced in 2019. It had a composite hull and was powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS engines.

The LY 680 is still very much the same as the LY 650 except for a few updates.

The flybridge has been extended by 1,400 mm and features a spacious lounge sofa and a barbecue grill, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze.

In addition, the swimming platform has been extended by 700 mm platform, which allows you to enjoy a wide range of offshore activities, including personal watercrafts.
