A new luxury motor yacht in Sydney’s northern beaches has been listed for sale by a Japanese motor yacht dealer.
The yacht, a Lexus, is the largest of its kind in the world and the first of its type to be built in Australia.
It will be built at the new Lighthouse Yacht Club at Port Macquarie in Sydney Harbour.
Lighthouse Yachts is the world’s first privately-owned yacht club and the owner of a number of luxury boats.
“The yacht is going to be a real world tour boat, which is something very few people are going to get,” Lexus owner David Matsuura said.
A spokesperson for Lighthouse told the ABC the yacht was the largest yacht in the ocean at the time of listing.
They had no comment to make at the moment.
Lexus’ president, Tadashi Yoshida, said it would be a “dream job” for the owner.
“This is the first time in my career I’ve ever worked on a luxury yacht,” Mr Yoshida said.
“The owners have worked very hard to make this happen.”
The yacht was built in Japan and is now in storage in Sydney, with the owner planning to make it available for auction.
The buyer will pay $1.7 million, which will be split 50-50 between the Lexus yacht and Lighthouse.
