Lexus introduces the LY680 Luxury Yacht

21 March 2024
  • Lexus introduces the LY680 Luxury Yacht – an evolution of the LY650 model.
  • Expanded flybridge and swimming platform.    
  • Production exclusively handled by the Horizon Group

Lexus has announced the new LY680 Luxury Yacht, an evolution of the previous LY650 model benefiting from a series of enhancements.

The flagship Luxury Yacht is the embodiment of the Lexus ‘Crafted’ design philosophy with attention to detail designed to exceed customers’ expectations.

The concept for the yacht’s development was that it should ”feel like a hideout in the middle of the sea, providing a space where discerning customers can feel free and at ease”. The exterior reflects the Lexus L-finesse design philosophy, while the interior has been crafted down to the smallest details to provide a comfortable living space. In terms of performance, Lexus aims for confidence-inspiring cruising performance, with stable manoeuvrability, ride comfort, and quietness.

Production has been carried out by the Horizon Group, which has a reputation for advanced technological capabilities, honed through superyacht construction. By combining the Horizon Group’s building capabilities with yacht production methods based on the Toyota Production System: TPS*2, the strengths of both brands have been leveraged.

A 1/20 scale model of the LY680 will be on display at the Japan International Boat Show 2024, at Pacifico Yokohama from 21 – 24 March 2024.

Orders are being accepted exclusively in Japan through Toyota Marine sales offices and other selected dealerships*1.

Expansion of flybridge and swimming platform

The flybridge has been extended by 1,400mm and features a spacious lounge sofa and a barbecue grill*3. The swimming platform has been extended by 700mm.

Production by the Horizon Group

The LY680 is built by Horizon Group, a leading luxury yacht brand in Asia that specialises in custom-built yachts featuring advanced technology and production methods. The combination of sleek styling inspired by Lexus’s L-finesse design philosophy and Horizon Group’s production capabilities cultivated through superyacht construction leverages the strengths of both brands to create a spectacular vessel.
