The Iguana X100 is a different kind of RIB. Powered with twin 300 hp outboards, the tender can reportedly make 48 knots. With the push of a button, the vessel’s tracks drop and this faux amphibian crawls onto the beach without getting a drop of water on anyone’s toes.
The Iguana X100 can be outfitted with an L-shaped settee, rod holders and Garmin electronics. It has hypalon 380 tubes and a cooled hydraulic land drive, enabling what the builder calls “unlimited land use.”
Whom it’s for: The yacht owner who has had the traditional center-console and wants a versatile vessel that makes a statement.
Picture this: There’s a beachside bar in the distance. The sound of a batch of rum runners in the blender catches your ear. You could take the inflatable, but you want to make an entrance. Your crew hops into the Iguana X100, runs it up to where the sea meets the sand and shifts the boat into land mode. The Iguana X100 eases up the beach, you get your tasty treat, and you all head back to the water in your fiberglass lizard, leaving onlookers’ jaws on the bar.
