Motor Boat & Yachting Awards 2020
The Iguana X100 has been recognised by one of the marine industry’s top awards.The Motor Boat and Yachting awards shortlisted the X100 in the superboat category along side only five other boats: Brabus Shadow 500 Black Ops, Fairline F//Line 33, Hinckley R34, Princess R35, Sunseeker Hawk 38 The MBY team commended the all new RIB from the pioneering brand for a design that not only has a more utilitarian look but the tubes also increase the stability and creates a drier ride. While the X100 is a stripped back model compared to the luxury Iguana Yachts traditionally manufacture, Hugo Andreae, MBY Author, compared it to a Land Rover Sport rather than a Land Rover Defender, with well considered features including a well protected helm and shock mitigating seats. Prices of the X100 start at €231,000, close enough to tempt owners of rival amphibious craft and some high-end RIBs to take a closer look. Check out the full MBY review here

Top Tips for Safer SailingThe sheer pleasure of being out on the open water is a joy at any age, which may explain why there are nearly 12 million recreational boating vessels registered in the U.S. The UK, too, has seen an increase in boat ownership too, particularly with sailing yachts and powerboats. With the Iguana enabling generations to create new sailing memories together,you may well be planning your first family trip. If so, it’s vital to put safety first as you explore new horizons together.The importance of preparationWhile the U.S. Coastguard are pleased to report a decrease in boating accidents, they still emphasize the importance of being prepared. Ensure that everyone on board is wearing a well-fitting life jacket at all times, and that you pack a first aid kit, fire extinguisher, ropes and torches. Check the weather reports before you go and consult the local sailing laws so that you are knowledgeable about the conditions and rules ahead. Alcohol remains the leading cause of boating accidents, so plan ahead and ensure that you’re sober and fit to sail.Finding your “sea-legs”If you or a family member is a sailing novice, it may take a while to find your ‘sea-legs.’ According to the U.S. Library of Medicine, approximately 1 in 3 people is highly susceptible to motion sickness, and when feeling unwell it can be tempting to isolate yourself, remove any restrictive clothing and lean over the side for some fresh air. Advise everyone on board not to do this; instead, take someone with you to watch for your safety and never remove your life jacket. There are a number of preventative measures which can reduce sickness at sea; from sea bands to skin patches, if you think you’re likely to be affected, bring some potential solutions on board.
Talking it through
It’s well worth talking through procedures with your passengers so that everyone knows what to do in an emergency. In the event that someone falls overboard, be ready to shut off the motor and propellers immediately. Remind everyone how to float in their life jacket and use a whistle to attract attention. It’s also important that you ask a friend or relative ashore to be a point of emergency contact, and to raise the alarm if your boat does not return when planned. The RYA also offer a free app to track your location and alert HM Coastguard if needed.
Boating trips are an absolute pleasure, especially when shared with loved ones. By putting safety first, you can relax and create memories together, knowing that in the worst case, everyone is as protected and well prepared as possible. Sail in safety for family fun that everyone will treasure.
