BESPOKE PROJECT: AN IGUANA MADE FOR BIKERS

At Iguana Yachts, we are originality enthusiasts. As a passionate and innovative team, we love a good challenge. 

A client who happens to be a motorcycle enthusiast specifically asked us to be able to add two motorcycles on board his Iguana Knight Custom. this was a new challenge for us that we accepted eagerly. 

In order to do this, we had to solve multiple issues such as: how to manipulate the motorcycles onboard, how to manipulate and secure the motorcycles onboard, and which equipment to install without compromising the vessel’s performance. And we succeeded. 

The bow was designed and optimized for different configurations:

  • Transport of two motorcycles
  • Transport of passengers
  • Transport of an additional fuel tank for more autonomy

To answer the different use cases, the front deck was equipped with Ullman rails in order to make the boat versatile. 

Motorycles onboard

The boat is equipped with a comfortable front seat that can be fixed on the Ullman rails and dismantled quickly and effortlessly. To ensure that the front hatch stays watertight, we had to design a specific hatch that could be used in any configuration. The additional tank can be easily stored at the bow by means of numerous Ullman rails available. An electric pump system transfers fuel from the removable fuel tank above the deck to the standard 500L fuel tank below the deck.

Concerning the lifting procedure, it was necessary to use an electric crane, the Atlas Baby 500 which has the advantage to be light, and dismantlable at sea, and must not, in any case, hinder the pilot’s view. During the design phase, we established that for safety reasons the crane should be completely dismantled into two parts and secured on each side of the console. And of course, it should not be used while cruising. This specific demand impacted the core of the boat: the structure had to be rearranged and locally reinforced. The fact that it is electric adds comfort and ensures the safety of the handler: the bikes can be maneuvered remotely. 

Securing the motorbikes, we use a “Steadystand” that blocks the front wheel and a foot locker with quick storage ability. Both systems are fixed on frames designed to be bolted on the Ullman rails. All items listed above are designed to be removable to go from one configuration to another.

DOES THE IGUANA ADAPT WELL TO THE LONG ISLAND BEACHES?

As the festive season approaches, our Sales Team had the wonderful opportunity to visit New York on the request of a new client that has a wonderful property on Long Island. 

Long Island is already a known location to Iguana and also is home to an X100 White Edition that is used regularly by a wonderful family who maximizes the Iguana’s ability in exploring beaches and visiting wonderful restaurants along the Coast Line, also avoiding the traffic which is always a plus. 

This particular client had quite a challenging beach approach due to various sand bars and continuously moving tidal water changing the ground levels, but we are pleased to say the Iguana X100 dealt with the terrain without any issues much to the client’s delight.

The Iguana is the perfect boat for waterfront properties. With it parked on your property, you can access the water whenever you want and without any restrictions. Get away from marinas and pontoons: be completely independent.
