SPORT YACHT CONCEPT
The design brief to create a sports yacht for recreational day cruising with up to eight guests, powered by twin high performance Lexus V8s, was given to the Lexus Design Centre in Japan. Their stunning Lexus Sport Yacht concept has the upper deck and outer hull seamlessly bonded around the inner structure. Both deck and hull are made of a single hand-laid composite of two-part polyurethane epoxy resin reinforced with hand-laid woven carbon fibre cloth. This composite material is called Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic, or CFRP. CFRP is the technology used in supercars like the Lexus LFA, high-performance aircraft, competition skis, bicycles, and world-class racing yachts.
