The 32-foot Iguana X100, with seat­ing for 12, can streak across the sea at 48 knots and climb onto the beach for a pic­nic.

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.
