As incredible as it sounds, Iguana Yachts offers a way to get in and out of the water seamlessly on any type of coast. As an easy to use amphibious boat, it provides the ultimate freedom for waterfront property owners. Gone are the worries of getting a permit for a dock, of awkward berthing maneuvers, of being restricted by tides or bad storms. Equipped with a set of tracks, Iguana amphibious vessels can be parked directly in the backyard for quick and easy access. Iguana owners have the luxury to enjoy their boat safely even during these uncertain times caused by the global pandemic. When ready to set sail, owners can embark from home and be in the water within a few minutes.
This amazing idea came from one man’s desire to enjoy boating without constraints. Antoine Brugidou founded Iguana Yachts in 2008 to overcome the hardships of launching a boat in the very tidal region of Normandy in France. He imagined a boat that does not need to be anchored, berthed or trailered, a boat that can be used anytime, anywhere. A team of high-level engineers and designers joined forces and together, they developed the Iguana Mobility System, a technology that offers a way to incorporate a set of tracks into a boat’s hull, without compromising its excellent hydrodynamic properties. With patents in 8 major economic regions, this one-of-a-kind, globally protected concept represents a major innovation in the industry.
For 12 years, the leading French shipyard has offered the most sublime experience to seaside homeowners, superyacht owners, crews and private island owners all over the world. With Iguana Yachts present across 6 continents, the diversity of its uses and possibilities are endless. One thing that all the yacht owners have in common, is that on average they use their Iguana 6 times more often than a traditional boat.
With an Iguana Yacht, an impromptu barbecue on a remote island or a last minute sunset viewing at sea become as easy as taking your car out for a drive. The Iguana can drive on any terrain including in rocks, pebbles and soft sand. The tracks fold into the hull in 8 seconds and the boat can reach speeds of 55 knots. Accessing remote beaches and coves with no infrastructure to welcome a boat becomes a no-brainer. But the Iguana also provides a very safe experience to embark and disembark, which is especially valuable for those with children.
With a large range of amphibious boats, Iguana Yachts provides models for all tastes and uses. From stylish and luxurious tenders like the Iguana Original or the Commuter to practical and multipurpose RIBs like the X100 and the Iguana Knight. The Iguana designs are well known for being absolutely stunning and unique. With elegant lines and modern features Iguana Yachts have won many design awards. Every boat is tailored to users’ needs and finished by hand. Iguana works with the best quality materials and renowned service suppliers. From the elegance of the hull to the perfect embroidery, attention to detail is key to producing French luxury at its finest.
