PRE­PARE TO LEVEL UP: LEXUS SPORT YACHT

Yachting - - CUR­RENTS -

Be­lieve us, we’re just as frus­trated as you prob­a­bly are that Lexus is not re­veal­ing ren­der­ings of its forth­com­ing 65-foot fly­bridge cruiser. We do know that it will be an evo­lu­tion of the car­bon-fiber con­cept yacht be­low, which is a 42-footer that Lexus said from the start would never go into pro­duc­tion. The in­ter­est in that con­cept was so strong, though, that Lexus de­cided to cre­ate the 65. U.S. sales of the 65 are ex­pected to start in the sec­ond half of 2019, with con­struc­tion by the Mar­quis-Lar­son Boat Group in Wis­con­sin. Lexus is call­ing the 65 a “sport fly­bridge cruiser” with space for en­ter­tain­ing as many as 15 peo­ple. The car­maker’s mo­bil­ity ser­vices plat­form will in­te­grate se­cu­rity, smart­phone, re­mote di­ag­nos­tics, main­te­nance and other ser­vices aboard.
