What do vacations mean to you? Searching online for hours, comparing prices to book the best value holiday package, only to find yourself going through seeming endless humiliating (and potentially health-damaging) security checks before you finally arrive at your destination…where you’ll need to figure out how to get from the airport to your hotel before you can just relax?
Frankly, just typing this exhausts me.
A better holiday idea for many is the ‘staycation’ – and if you live near a body of water, you can experience the ultimate getaway by leaving city life behind to sail away on the sea, where tranquility, isolation and peace are experienced in ways no other place can offer.
The best way to do that? On a private yacht, of course. But forget inhaling diesel fumes and polluting the ocean; there’s a new eco-boating experience on the scene that’s kind to our oceans, thanks to its amphibious conformation: meet the Iguana Commuter.
The Iguana Commuter Yacht is a multifunctional cruiser built with innovative technology that allows it to run on a zero emission engine. This exceptional luxury boat can also mount any terrain with great ease, thanks to its ergonomic tracks designed to the ground pressure of a human, which reduce any negative effects on the natural environment.
Compact and comfy, the Iguana is ideal for exploring places where traditional vessels can’t access. And it’s easy to take care of, too: its special tracks require no maintenance, and the boat can be stored out of water, without any need for anti-fouling care.
With a light footprint and bio-friendly hydraulic fluids, Iguana Yachts has always strived to minimise their environmental impact with a choice of electric drives as an alternative to using petrol. For example, the E-Iguana 29 boasts whisper-quiet 22 Kw drive units, and 10 days of run time so you can enjoy your Iguana with and zero emissions. All E-Iguana 29s are powered by the most advanced liquid-cooled Active Thermal Management (ATM) battery modules, ensuring reliability and safety.
The technology of Iguana Yachts includes a very sophisticated GPS system equipped with deep-finder and auto-guidance, as well as underwater cameras to check for reefs or low waters. Each Iguana is highly unique also for the ample choice in hull colour, allowing you to personalise your own model.
More features include the electric anchor, which comes with an automatic depth measurer to ensure enough rope is always deployed, and an electric ladder, which can be controlled on board using a key remote control for safe and secure passenger boarding. The technology is similar to that on smartphones and tablets, making the control-pad of the yacht extremely user friendly. But just to make it more reassuring for new owners to know how to control the amphibious yacht, the Iguana team provides an introduction course to explain every detail of operation of the luxury vessel.
Iguana Yachts are beautiful to look at, comfortable to ride, and they can conquer any area without harming Mother Nature. This luxury boat is a true love letter to eco-friendly travel.
