Lexus’ First Luxury Yacht, The LY 650, Is Set To Be Ready In Late 2019

I bet you thought the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept was the last of seafaring vessel from Lexus. Well, the truth is, Lexus is far from over with watercraft. In fact, it is pretty pumped about putting Lexus onto the open waters. Just last month, it has unveiled a 65-foot luxury yacht called LY 650, but unlike the concept seen last year, it will be the first-ever Lexus production yacht and first to use L-finesse, the design language of Lexus, heralding a new era of luxury – Lexus style.

Twin V8 Powered Seafaring Lexus Is Pretty But, Sadly, Won’t Be Produced

The Lexus Sport Yacht Concept you see here may not be as wild as the spacecraft the Japanese luxury automaker dreamed up for Luc Besson’s sci-fi movie, Valerian and City of a Thousand Planets, it is at least, more down to earth. Nearly two years in the development, Lexus Sport Yacht Concept is the brainchild of Lexus Marine Department and it was a bespoke one-off project with no production intent. This particular example, a running proof-of-concept, was unveiled at Di Lido Island on Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach, Florida, last week.

Superyacht Takes A Dive With Migaloo M-Series Private Submersible Yachts

Forget about two-man submarine. If you really want to explore the deep blue sea and marvel at the expansive ocean, Migaloo M-Series Private Submersible Yachts are your best bet.

While your fellow richie rich are chilling out on the deck of their multimillion yachts, you can surprise them with one of these luxury sub from beneath. Now, wouldn’t that be fun? They will probably choke on their martinis when this behemoth breaks out of the water. Continue reading Superyacht Takes A Dive With Migaloo M-Series Private Submersible Yachts

Pyramid-shaped Yacht Looks Like Star Destroyer Flying Above The Water

One thing we like about boats is, there’s a huge room for design freedom. Unlike aircraft which you have to adhere to certain engineering factors, thus resulting in every aircraft looking pretty much the same. Speaking of design freedom, designer Jonathan Schwinge definitely leverages on that 101 percent when he conceptualized a pyramid-shaped super yacht which he call Schwinge Tetra. So name after the tetrahedron form, Schwinge Tetra uses hydrofoils to rise above the water and together with its radical shape, makes it look like an Imperial Star Destroyer from the front. It really looks like something pull out of the pages of a sci-fi novel. Continue reading Pyramid-shaped Yacht Looks Like Star Destroyer Flying Above The Water

You Can Hold a Party Onboard this Sea-faring Boeing 307 Stratoliner

Ken London, a private pilot, would have cause a stir among vintage plane collectors if what he did with a retired Boeing 307 Stratoliner was done today. So what exactly did he do? Well, he bought aviation pioneer Howard Hughes’ 307 “Flying Penthouse” in an auction for 62 bucks and sent it straight to Ft Lauderdale to have it converted to, wait for it, a boat. Yes. As odd as it may sound, it did happen and this may be viewed as a ‘disaster’ to some aviation enthusiasts, especially for rather significant aircraft such as the 307.

Aeroboat Day-Boat Powered By Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 Engine

when you have a watercraft that looks as elegant as the Aeroboat by Claydon Reeves, it is only right that it graces a prestigious event like the Salute to Style which will be taking place at The Hurlingham Club on July 16-19. this Brit designed and built futuristic day-boat is powered by a reconditioned, fuel-injected Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 engine, ‘detuned’ to 1,100 horses which will provide it ample enough power to make an estimated top speed of between 75 and 95 knots (86 and 109 mph). for the design of the watercraft, yacht design studio Claydon Reeves looked to the famous World War II fighter plane, Spitfire for inspiration. this design inspiration can be clearly observed from the stern and sweeping tail that reminiscences the vintage fighter’s wing trailing edge to the authentic air intake scoop.

Antagonist Yacht by Art of Kinetik

the Antagonist is billed by its maker, Art of Kinetik, as a luxury compact yacht which we disagree – we think it is more than that. it has amazing lines that would easily be accoladed as the finest crafted wood sculpture to ever cut through the water. to us, it is a speedboat/luxury yacht hybrid packaged in a size that’s agile and fun. this 37-foot open weekend cruiser is equipped with two 370 horsepower Yanmar 8LV-370 diesel units matched to two Yanmar ZT379 Sterndrive with SS props, together with its fine deep-V wooden hull, enables it to cut through the surface of the water at top speed of 42 knots, that’s a good 78 km/h or 48 mph in land terms.

with 70 per cent of the earth covered in water, it makes sense to extend our leisure activities out into the sea – like cruising out onto the sparse ocean, stopping whenever you fancy and perhaps, take a dive or just chill out on the deck. whichever activity you choose, your choice of water borne transport must be small enough to maneuver, fast enough to outrun potential pirates and have enough real estate for some serious open ocean partying, and that my friend, calls for a beautiful yacht like the Wider 42. the Wider 42 features a few innovations, including a patented “wider cockpit” that offers an incredible 18 m2 of walkable area in the cockpit and cutting edge moulding methodology for its hull construction.

hydrogen powered vehicles are not new but this particular example here takes hydrogen power to the next level. what makes the Luxury-Sea MIG 675 here special is that it harvests its fuel directly from the water that it is travelling on. now, you can’t really do that with a land transport, do you? powered by a 500 horsepower hydrogen motor that is capable of propelling this 2,866 pounds, aluminum hull luxury boat up to 70 mph without polluting the environment. since it draws its fuel directly off the water beneath it, it negates the need for any compressed tanks, which translates to space saving. the boat can comfortably accommodates up to three persons and features LED navigation system, a leather interior, a built-in bar, teak floors, an retractable table, a shower, a toilet, and the all-important sun deck.
