Iguana 29 Amphibious Yachts: Land or Water, It Doesn’t Matter

by Range

Sick of the sea? This new motorboat from Iguana Yachts will deploy treads and let just drive your fancy ship right out of the water when you’re ready to get back on dry land. Why does this remind me of a James Bond movie?

The Iguana 29 has retractable tank treads that will deploy when needed. The treads are powered by electricity, so they don’t make much noise, either. This means that to beach or dock the boat, you won’t need any help at all. It’s also designed to help you get out of a jam at low tide or if you get too close to a sandbar in shallow waters.

It was created by Antoine Fritsch. The idea was to create a design for the treads that wouldn’t compromise the look of the hull.

While there are already other amphibious boats, none of them look as stylish or modern as this one. The Iguana 29 is available starting at around €215,000 (~$280,000 USD).
