The Iguana Commuter is a True Amphibian

The Iguana Commuter is designed to navigate land and sea with equal ease.

While iguanas are classified as lizards and not amphibians, anyone who has ever seen one paddle across a South Florida canal can attest to their prowess both in the water and on terra firma. That’s why Iguana is such an appropriate name for this builder. Its 45-knot, carbon-fiber Commuter (available in limo and sport models) has tanklike treads that allow it to climb onto ­beaches and other terrain for easy disembarkation and a novel way to explore a destination.

Whom It's For: The Iguana Commuter is an ideal tender for someone who views the world just a little bit differently. She sees no real reason to delineate between earth and sea. It's all hers to discover. She's probably already dreaming up wings.

Picture This: A small but powerful shore break has stopped the other tenders off your favorite island, forcing their passengers to make a tough swim or stay aboard — a pity for them.

The Iguana cuts right through the waves (it reportedly stays dry in seas up to 4 feet) and plants her treads on the sand, pulling you and yours onto dry land. At the push of a button, a ladder extends from her transom, and just like that, the island is no longer deserted.
