There have been a lot of topics about Lexus in the automotive industry, and one piece of news that seemed unprofessional and unexpected caught my attention. Lexus’ first luxury yacht, the LY 650, was launched globally in Boca Raton. As Lexus’ new flagship product, the birth of LY 650 marks Lexus’s challenge beyond the automotive field.
The overall design of LY 650 is completed in cooperation with the top American yacht manufacturer, Marquis Yachts. It is about 65 feet long and 19 feet wide. The overall design language of LY 650 is adopted.
The majestic bow, elegant hull, towering stern, and dynamic proportions of the LC sports car create the unique appearance of the LY 650. The hull is made of lightweight, high-strength composite materials made of reinforced carbon fiber and glass fiber-reinforced materials. It has an independent open-air driving station on the top plywood, achieving excellent high-speed performance and a comfortable cruising experience.
To achieve surging performance, LY 650 has two Volvo Penta IPS* engines, each with an output of 1350, 1200, or 1050 horsepower. It has joystick control, offshore fixed-point position maintenance, and automatic wave plate functions. At the same time, LY650 is also equipped with the LY-Link maritime communication system, an advanced interconnection technology specially created for marine transportation, which can provide users with timely maritime information communication and multiple function control of the yacht.
The yacht’s interior design was created by Lexus and Italian yacht design studio Nuvolari Lenard and is comparable to a luxury hotel. The first floor is a white-themed living room with a bar, two captain’s chairs, two sofas, a movable table, and an air-conditioning system. The efficient layout creates a comfortable interior space. At the same time, the galley on board is also equipped with a double-burner gas stove, sink, and built-in refrigerator.
Below the living room are three elegant bedrooms, each with a separate bathroom with a shower. In addition, LY 650 is equipped with a creative lighting system and an Italian Videoworks networkable integrated audio and video system, bringing passengers a dreamlike luxury experience. LY 650’s unique design and cutting-edge technology demonstrate Lexus’ “heartfelt hospitality” and ingenuity concepts.
Speaking of “yacht,” friends familiar with watches will think of the Yacht-Master series watches replica under the Rolex brand. As early as 1992, Rolex launched the first Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master watch. This was the first Oyster Professional watch with three case sizes (29, 35, or 40 mm).
Over the past few decades, Rolex has actively supported sailing, with title sponsorship of nearly 15 significant events, including the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, two major offshore classics, and the Rolex Race Rolex Fastnet Race.
The positioning of the Rolex Yacht-Master when it was launched differed from that of the Submariner. In Rolex’s opinion, underwater staff and captains were the suitable wearers of the Submariner. The positioning of Yacht-Master is consistent with its proper translation: Yacht-Master, the owner of the yacht, that is, the wealthy class who leisurely watches the sea and holds parties on the water. Replica Rolex watches.
In 2007, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II Regatta Chronograph was the world’s first watch with a mechanical and default countdown function. In this unique and complex watchmaking device, its movement and case interact with the Ring Command rotating outer ring designed and developed by Rolex to form an innovative system and interact. This regatta timer allows competitors to cross the line quickly after the starting gun sounds.
Regarding the Rolex Yacht-Master series, the most popular one should be the 116655-Oysterflex bracelet watch, commonly known as the “Golden Yacht.” The design of this watch is very luxurious, with an 18K rose gold case and a Cerachrom black ceramic bezel, which is very ornamental.
The diameter of the dial is 40mm, with a slight convex window to enlarge the calendar, which is very convenient to read. The brand’s patented Oysterflex watch strap has an inner elastic titanium-nickel alloy piece connected to the case and Oyster safety clasp, and the outer layer is covered with high-performance black rubber to protect the metal piece. Its superior texture makes it more comfortable to wear.
Rolex is called “once and for all” because of its durability and fantastic value retention rate. It also has industry-leading timing accuracy. This “golden yacht” is equipped with Rolex’s classic 3135 self-winding movements. It uses the brand’s patented paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring, which can resist the effects of impact and temperature changes, ensuring accuracy and reliability. In addition, the movement is certified by the Swiss Observatory and provides a 48-hour power reserve.
The market highly seeks Rolex’s classic appearance and exquisite craftsmanship. The Yacht-Master is a higher-end sports watch, and its domestic price is as high as 195,100 yuan.
Just like the name of the Yacht-Master series, it gives people a unique sense of respect and status. Owning a luxurious “gold yacht” watch is not the goal of watch owners. Watch owners who like Rolex Yacht-Master series watches are elites who enjoy life to the fullest. Wouldn’t it be more perfect to have your own Lexus luxury yacht? What do you think?
