Iguanas take teams to shallow or difficult to access terrain. Maintenance can be done regardless of conditions or tides.
Iguanas make it possible to take people to atypical places, inaccessible by boat, beaches with high tides, non-port areas.
The areas used for bathymetry are not always accessible by boat. Iguanas mobile on land thanks to its caterpillar tracks will access them quickly and easily.
The unloading of material will be much more efficient and easy if the amphibious boat goes alone to the hangar or other storage place.
The laying of telecom cables is sometimes complex when it comes to transporting the cable to the coast. This intermediate zone between land and sea can be crossed with Iguanas.
After natural disasters, the infrastructures can all be damaged and people are in danger. Iguanas stationed on land can be operated as soon as the disaster passes to provide land and sea mobility.
The Iguana boat's deck is fully customizable. Here are some options : cabin, seatings, underwater camera, cuddy storage lockers, custom hull color, outboard engine options, hard tops options, electronic pack, IMS options, crash engine rail, tripod reinforcement, lights.
The research unit wroks on each project's feasibility. The customization of the deck can be discussed with them in order to create the boat that perfectly fits a specific use case.
The materials used, their sizing and the assembly methods give the Iguanas a very high robustness. The central part of the hull is reinforced by structural elements of several centimetres (up to 5cm) of which is attached the mobility system.
The boats are very rigid with a very low centre of gravity.
The 10-years REX (return on experience) has made it possible to identify the main areas of wear that need to be monitored. Iguana provides spare parts sets on each of its components.
Piloting and maintaining an Iguana requires special training. Iguana teams provide training during the delivery of the boats: from 3 to 6 days for piloting (at sea, on land, passage from land to sea and from sea to land), piloting on difficult terrain, landing and exit with waves and the shore maneuvers. A 10-day technical training will allow technicians to implement the spare parts provided by the Iguana Yachts shipyard.
The Iguana mobility system significantly increases the purchase price of boats, but the robustness of the hulls and its architecture generates a limited annual maintenance cost. Iguanas have a lifespan of 10 years or more. Their cost of ownership remains under control.
