Lexus officially launched the Lexus LY 650 Yacht in Boca Raton, Florida, at the Waldorf-Astoria Boca. Major League Baseball legend Alex Rodriguez, A-Rod, was in Boca for the maiden voyage of the Lexus yacht (And generously snapped a selfie with Pursuitist)…
Pursuitist was on deck to experience Lexus’s latest dedication to become a diverse luxury lifestyle brand with the launch of the amazing Lexus LY 650 yacht, which featured exceptional performance and quietness befitting a maritime flagship. The brand’s first luxury vessel is an ocean-capable 65-ft flybridge cruiser, promising up to 31.4 knots.
The entertainer and former New York Yankee player, 44, was at the LY 650 launch as a personal guest of Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda. A-Rod toured the new luxury yacht, chatted with Lexus executives and posed with guests and journalists.
A-Rod is currently engaged to Jennifer Lopez, the 50 year old entertainer. This will be J.Lo’s fourth wedding and Rodriguez’s second.
Boating enthusiasts and celebrities looking to own the Lexus LY 650 will need around $3.5 million, though this cost can fluctuate depending on features and options. Based on our “first drive” of the LY 650 Yacht, the price is absolutely worth it. From fit and finish to technological boating advances, Lexus spared no expense in entering the luxury yacht category. Their dedication to craftsman is obvious throughout, from the hull to the stern. It’s what you’d expect from Lexus, and honestly, even more. Subtle luxury touches, color and shapes will make you feel at home on the water and create a unique boating experience.
