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

VERSABILITY IS THE MAIN ASSET

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. 

Motorycles onboard

SECURE THE BIKES

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. 

Motorycles onboard

CREATE YOUR OWN IGUANA

An amphibious boat offers greater flexibility than a classic boat, allowing it to do various things. Explore, and enjoy your passions, like motorcycling for instance. The Iguana gives you more versatility and possibilities when exploring. Create your perfect amphibious boat, and customize it to your needs.

Let your imagination run wild. Be different. Get an Iguana.

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.

NO DOCK BUILDER NEEDED, PARK YOUR BOAT AT HOME

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.

A BOAT THAT SAILS, LANDS, AND FLIES: THE IGUANA FOILER

Iguana Foils Amphibious Boat Electric

SUSTAINABLE BOATING EXPERIENCE

The Iguana Foiler was unveiled for the first time during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022. Iguana Yachts goes one step further with an innovation that is both groundbreaking and sustainable. Responding to the demand for an electric version of the Iguana from clients, the French shipyard developed a foiling version of its amphibious boat fitted with an electric outboard.

Sustainability has always been part of Iguana Yachts DNA. The Iguana is a boat that does not need any heavy infrastructure like ports and docks to be operated. With minimal requisites in logistics, materials, infrastructure, and anti-fouling, amphibious boats are overall more environmentally friendly and last longer as they do not stay in the water all year long. It is a natural development for Iguana Yachts to go for electric propulsion to offer the most sustainable motor-boating experience in the world. 

The electric amphibious Iguana Foiler is perfect for lakes and seas and offers a very comfortable and dry experience above choppy waves. Iguana clients will have the opportunity to experience the most exclusive and innovative ride ever made: a quiet, powerful, and all-terrain 10m boat reaching speeds of 30 knots.

HIGH-TECH FOIL TECHNOLOGY

Iguana Yachts has worked with the best French Engineers and Designers to create a vessel that is both extremely efficient and beautiful. Caponnetto-Hueber is a worldwide recognized expert in foil design.

They have worked on the Iguana Foils design to make it very simple and stable. Foils reduce drag and energy consumption by 50%. The surface piercing foils are auto-stable when foiling. As the architecture does not require sophisticated software to be controlled, it is a very safe technology. The foils can be folded for manoeuvres in harbours as well as when foils cannot be used in harsh seas. When the foils are folded, the boat works as a normal semi-planing hull. This makes the Iguana Foiler even more versatile and usable in any sea.

BEAUTIFUL DESIGN

As for all the other Iguana models, the French designers Fritsch and Durisotti worked on the design of the Iguana foiler to create a beautiful, modern, and sleek look. The Iguana Foiler has a bow-rider deck with an all-around windscreen above the console and nice seats on the bow. With lots of space and seating areas, the Iguana Foiler is perfect for smooth rides with family and friends. It was designed to be especially light to fly above the water.

ELECTRIC PROPULSION

Iguana Yachts has partnered with the Norwegian company Evoy. The Iguana Foiler is fitted with an electric Evoy 300HP outboard. It offers a blissfully quiet ride that is both smooth and better for the environment. The Iguana Foiler has a range of 50 miles and can go up to 30 knots. Like all the other Iguanas, the Foiler is amphibious with foldable tracks.

Since 2016, Iguana Yachts has offered electric land mobility with a 400 volts lithium battery. The R&D is well equipped to provide high-voltage engineering as well as mechanical and hydraulic challenges. Seaside property owners will now have the opportunity to launch their boats from home and enjoy an electrically powered ride on foils.

Electric amphibious boat

With a 10-year tried and tested technology, Iguana Yachts is ready for another challenge and to lead the way with sustainable and innovative solutions. Overcrowded marinas, the obsolescence of infrastructure due to sea level rise and the will to reduce CO2 emissions, make the Iguana Foiler perfect for the future of motor-boating.

We are extremely happy to be part of this project as Iguana Yachts has always tried to approach the nautical industry from a different point of view. Bringin the electrical propulsion from Evoy and the foils from Caponnetto Hueber, we believe the Iguana Foiler will not unnoticed. It will likely become the Swiss knife of the electrical tender undustry.
