The world of luxury yachts often generates such fascination as that generated by automobiles. That is why the Lexus automotive company announced its incorporation into this fierce market with the commercialization in the United States of its first Premium yacht. Your luxury ship will appear in the second half of 2019 in the American country and one year later in Japan.
Until now it is known that it will be 65 feet long, that is to say almost 20 meters. At the beginning of last year, this Sports Yacht was presented as its premium yacht prototype, developed by the nautical division of Lexus Design. They also confirmed that they would work in conjunction with the Marquis-Larson Boat Group.
The luxuries of this yacht model are truly remarkable, especially in the area of cabins under the deck. It was announced that they will have the capacity to accommodate up to 15 passengers with all the comforts. This was said by Shigeki Tomoyama, executive vice president of Toyota.
It is expected that in the coming months he will give more details of this ambitious project, including new features of the model and the price. He said that with this next step in Lexus they are moving towards a level of luxury and much greater comfort.
The pleasure of sailing
Just as there are driving schools for those who do not know how to drive a vehicle, there are also rules for learning to navigate a yacht.
For this, you must have the title of yacht master, which is taught in specialized institutions such as Yacht Point, where they are responsible for preparing students both in person and online. This title of yacht skipper enables you to govern motor yachts and sailing boats up to 24 meters in length and move 150 miles from the coast. In addition, you also get the license to operate jet skis.
A yacht skipper should have knowledge in several different fields that will give him the tools to be in front of a boat. That is why those interested in acquiring the title of yacht skipper must learn a series of mandatory assignments: navigation, meteorology and oceanography and safety at sea. This will allow them to acquire the skills to navigate boats with the characteristics indicated above.
The point of safety is really important when talking about navigation, so, in general, the academies of this type are very concerned and place special emphasis so that the instruction includes safety at sea, rescue techniques and navigation in different types of climate so that you have the capacity to respond and react to any emergency.
The nautical world has as many or more edges as the world of vehicles and the fans of the sea have now set their sights on the advances and new launches, such as this luxury yacht from Lexus.
In addition, this is not the only brand that currently competes to be the best in the sector. A yacht skipper could be in front of the new Lexus or at the wheel of a Prestige or a Sunseeker, both brands with great trajectory.
