Toyota Ponam 31, a grand yacht
Few Japanese automakers purely concentrate on cars, when few others play around in all kinds of motorized transportation. For instance, Honda makes everything starting from jet aircraft to motorbikes. But when Toyota might be known primarily for automobiles, it also engages itself a of boats.
The brand new Toyota Ponam 31 yacht is created across an aluminum hull along with a cockpit and flybridge rear deck layout, same like the Carver 32. It amounts thirty one feet overall and it is catered by a couple of 3.0 liter turbodiesel 4 cylinder engines deduced from Land Cruiser Prado (in these parts, popularly as Lexus GX 460) but marinized for nautical app. The company has even fitted out its brand new Sports Utility Cruiser with features like Drive Assist as well as a Virtual Anchor System, and can be views at the Oban Yacht Marina.
The Japanese giant anticipates to sell approximately fifteen units of Ponam 31 via its network of forty nine dealers throughout Japan, with prices beginning at 29700000 yen (around US$ 27500 at today’s conversion rates).
Meanwhile, Oban lifeboat went to help a stricken yacht earlier this morning. The Stornoway Coastguard got a phonecall reporting a boat with engine failures near Isle of Kerrera just after 10 am. Earlier, the yacht had left Loch Feochan but he had endured engine failure just afterwards.
The 2 people on board had began to sail towards Oban, but they were not able to make some progress because of a lack of wind. The lifeboat crew shlepped the yacht to the Oban Marina for repairs.
