Iguana Yachts: the alliance of technology & design
The main purpose of Iguana Yachts is to reinvent yachting by providing more simplicity and freedom. Its success lies in the alliance of technological innovation and design efficiency. The Iguana X100 White offers all the versatility and performance of its sister ship, the Iguana X100:
Iguana Mobility System (IMS). Equipped with the latest technology and tested for over 10,000 hours, the IMS ensures outstanding reliability and enables embarkation and disembarkation in complete safety even in waves of 1.20 meters. The landing gear deploys and locks in 8 seconds. The tracks can tackle any terrain (sand, pebbles, mud, inclined slope up to 40% ...) and reach a speed of 7 km/h.
Performance at sea. With the ingenious use of carbon fiber combined with an innovative design providing a perfect integration of the IMS into the hull, an Iguana is as seaworthy and fast as a traditional boat of the same size. These advanced construction techniques make it possible for the Iguana to reach speeds of 56 knots.

With its high-level research and development office, the Normandy shipyard builds the most technologically advanced amphibious boats and prepares a simpler and more sustainable future for motorboating. Iguana Yachts also works with the best materials and offers quality service and impeccable finishing touches. From the elegance of the hull to the embroidered finish of the upholstery, every detail is the subject of special attention to offer a French luxury amphibious boats.
Genesis of the Iguana concept
Bringing people closer to the sea is the main goal for Iguana Yachts! This leitmotiv was born from a personal constraint to reach the sea with greater ease, safety and speed.
"I like to sail in Normandy where the tides are very important which makes launching a boat very complex. Ports are full and expensive. There is little infrastructure on the coast, maneuvering with a trailer and tractor on the beach can be dangerous. Iguana Yachts comes from a desire to simplify boat launches and the overall boating experience. Solutions of amphibious vehicles existed, but none of them made it possible to completely free navigation from all constraints. This is how the totally new concept of Iguana was born: an amphibious boat with a tracked mobility system that enables you to land anywhere and enjoy a powerful boat" Antoine Brugidou, Iguana Yachts Founder and President.
In 2011, after 3 years of research, development and four-handed work with Antoine Fritsch, designer and founder of the Fritsch & Durisotti design studio, the first Iguana was built.
