The Lexus Sport Yacht concept was a one-of-a-kind vision by Lexus Design. Engineered by the Toyota Marine Division, a single running concept was built in partnership with Marquis-Larson Boat Group of Pulaski (Green Bay) Wisconsin, USA.
The hull, inner structure and superstructure of the bespoke 42-foot open sport cruiser were made of hand-laid carbon-fiber fabric, vacuum-infused with two-part polyurethane resin. The Lexus Sport Yacht concept was powered by two marinized versions of the Lexus 2UR-GSE 5.0 L performance V8 engines as used in the high-performance Lexus RC F coupe, GS F sedan and new LC 500 grand tourer.
The Lexus Sport Yacht concept carries up to 8 guests on board in high-speed luxury with a high-tech multi-media entertainment system and beautiful hand-made woods and leather.
