Iguana-Inspired Iwana Superyacht Concept Presented

Iwana by Alex McDiarmid
British Designer Alex McDiarmid has managed to create a lizard-inspired 85m superyacht design concept that he dubbed Iwana (the word iguana is derived from a Spanish form of the original Taino name for the species Iwana.). The iguanas’ form, characteristics including stance, and coloring, have been studied closely and uniquely applied to the watercraft concept.

The aft section of the hull, superstructure and ‘Day Light Opening’ / DLO window graphics are there to be explored in terms of style.

Similar to panoramic roof windows on modern cars, the super structure integrates a full length panoramic roof window running over the yacht. While the main superstructure takes its form from the head of an iguana, the dorsal crests of these beautiful lizards inspire the decks and communication tower. In order to maximize deck space aft, the bulwarks open into two foldout platforms. There are not just two small balconies, but two large bathing platforms.

A helicopter, custom tenders and toys are under development matching the exterior styling of the yacht. Water toys include wave runners, sea scooters, windsurfers, kayaks, water skis, wakeboards and a whole range of scuba and fishing gear.
