Iguana X100 sea trials

X100 SEA TRIAL: HOW DOES IT WORK?

FIRST STEPS

The Iguana X100 is designed to deliver the most enjoyable times on the water: water skiing, fishing, sunbathing… But before living adventure without limits, the boat needs to be perfectly checked.  The first steps are to check the engines, the electronics, all buttons, lights… We make sure everything is perfectly working and is offering a perfect finish.

TRIAL ON SEA

Once all details are checked, it’s time to test the performance of the boat on the sea. An Iguana X100 must be able to reach speeds of 55 mph, and we make sure it is! Boating performance is a key element for Iguana Yachts. We know people might think that an amphibious boat is less performant than a traditional boat. However, we want to show that an Iguana is both a powerful boat and an amphibious boat.

Before disembarking on land we get closer to the beach and check an element that no other boat is checking: the deployment of the tracks. The great performance on the sea is linked to the fact that the tracks, once fold into the hull, maintain the hull’s sleek lines. But approaching the coast, the team needs to check that the tracks deploy in 8 seconds.

TRIAL ON LAND

When arrived on land, all the attention is focused on the Iguana Mobility System (IMS). It’s time to check the stability of the boat, its drive control… Most of the time, people are absolutely shocked to see a boat moving forwards and backwards on the beach. People’s curisoity is always part of our sea trials.
