Naval News comments
Iguana Pro is a branch of the French shipyard Iguana Yacht, focusing on amphibious fast boats for military forces and law enforcement operating at sea and shores. The company has been building amphibious boats with tracks for 12 years. Iguana Pro is proposing fast rescue and interceptor amphibious boats since 2017.
The retractable amphibious tracks of the Iguanas allow the craft to land in sand, rocks or mud shores. Able to operate as an autonomous land based boat, the IG-PRO 31 Interceptor can be deployed very quickly without any specific infrastructure or land vehicle.
It also offers some potential for special forces. Replacing a conventional RHIB, it can allow faster deployment of sea based commandos. The Interceptor being able to move on land, it’s also easier to hide the landing craft ashore during special operations.
