iguana's commuter amphibious yacht drives out of the sea onto the beach

french shipyard iguana reveals a new model to its range of amphibious yachts, the 9.2 meter ‘commuter’. the luxurious water vehicle features a touchscreen helm, shock-resistant seats, and a hardtop that can raise to allow air in over the windshield, or drops to seal up the cockpit. the boat’s electric ladder can even be raised and lowered by iPhone. the deep-v hull is designed for rough-water running, delivering a top speed of 40 knots with twin outboards.

the pièce de résistance of iguana’s transformer boat is a deployable tank-like powertrain that drops from the hull side at the push of a button, turning the yacht into an amphibious vehicle that can drive on beaches and over land. for adventurers, the ‘commuter’ can also be used on desert islands. the powertrain is constructed of marine-grade aluminum, carbon fiber, and stainless-steel component, while owners have the options between an electric generator, or a gas oline engine — a top speed of 42 knots can be reached on the open water with a twin 200 hp outboard engine set-up.

normandy-based iguana wants to ensure that owners can personalize the ‘commuters’ter with a raft of materials and fabrics, with exclusive hull colors that range from sandalwood, black midnight, aurora gold, and royal nights, to aluminum white. beyond color-configurations, the ‘commuter’ is available in two versions. the vessel has six forward-facing seats with shock resistance and memory foam for comfort in rough water. the ‘sport’ model is built for pure recreation, featuring convertible cockpit lounges, a sunbed, a small cabin, and a sliding fridge for alfresco dining.
