Its natural for a luxury car brand to explore beyond the world of automobiles. We saw Aston Martin’s AM 37 Powerboat and a Submarine project as well. Porsche too is into designing yachts.

Toyota’s luxury marque Lexus isn’t into just cars either. This one is called the LY 650 and it picks up where the stunning Sport Yacht Concept (below) left off.

The LY 650 is the next step of the aforementioned concept and is still in a prototype form. Lexus has teamed up with US-based Marquis-Larson for the project. The yacht will have the L-finesse – the design language of Lexus, and Takumi craftsmanship.
