Lexus Sport Yacht
Envisioned by Akio Toyoda — the president of Toyota Motors and Chief Branding Officer of Lexus — when he piloted one of Toyota’s Ponam yachts a few years back, the Lexus Sport Yacht follows the automotive onto water but with Lexus’ premium touch. Twin 5.0-litre Lexus V8 gasoline engines power the concept Lexus Sport Yacht to a top speed of 49 miles per hour (43 knots), making for a lively ride that’s only heightened by the boat’s impressive handling. The design’s key feature is a seamlessly bonded structure that’s made up of gigantic pieces of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic, shaving about 2,200 pounds off its weight as compared to similarly sized and specced yachts. Climb inside the cabin and there’s a spacious air-conditioned lounge with a table, seating for six, and a galley with stove, sink, and refrigerator. And like many land-borne Lexus vehicles it’s also equipped with a feature-packed control panel with a giant touchscreen at the helm, luxurious leather and wood detailing, and an audio-visual entertainment system with Revolution Acoustics drivers powered by a Mark Levinson digital amplifier.
