Lexus unveils a Sports Yacht – Packs in 885 horsepower and oozes style

Lexus is making a foray into unchartered waters (excuse the pun!) with their new Sport Yacht. The brand has always been known for their cars, but this new launch seems like a new chapter for the company. Autoblog reported that the idea was formed when the company’s CEO, Akio Toyoda, was trying a yacht that use Toyota diesel engines. He became curious about what a sporty, luxury yacht created in Lexus design would be like and the Toyota Marine Department and Lexus took up the challenge.

There’s no word on whether yachts will be added to the Lexus roster. But if it did happen it wouldn’t be unprecedented as Aston Martin and Mercedes are already edging into the yacht market. Going by the beautiful pictures released by the company, it shouldn’t be too hard for them to drum up interest for this new potential offering.
