The Home Of Iguana Yachts
Building luxurious, innovative and reliable boats requires cutting-edge production facilities and talented, passionate people.
The Iguana shipyards combine state-of-the-art production facilities with unrivalled quality at every stage of the manufacturing process.
Our manufacturing plant in Caen (Normandy, France) is more than 5,000 square metres and houses the entire production line from part picking and painting to testing and completion.
1 boat is finished each month from our 8 assembly stations and tested to rigorous standards.
The yard was designed to rigorous efficiency criteria and has the capacity to build up to 6 boats at a time.
The production layout is inspired by an island construction model. Each workstation is completely independent.
Once a boat is complete, she can then be moved for final testing without disrupting the other stations.
The units proximity to the sea also facilitates testing and sea trials. And as the goods-inward department is on site, all the incoming materials can be thoroughly checked to ensure everything is to the Iguana Standard.
Once the boat has been sea trialed it is returned to the plant for the engineers to complete final checks before undergoing a second sea trial.
The manufacturing and engineering departments play key roles in ensuring that each yacht is worthy of the Iguana name.
But there is no greater resource at Iguana than the high caliber of artisans and craftsmen who expertly perform their work to the most exacting standards.
Each craftsman is highly skilled with years of experience making the Iguana finish second to none.
Thanks to the connected facility, team members up to date about ongoing all projects and provide personalised, impeccable service to customers.

Each boat is given the final seal of approval by Founder and CEO Antoine Brugidou. Ensuring the brand remains true to its origins of uncompromised boating.
Each leather panel of the Iguana Exclusive is hand stitched.
The Cabin is decked out to the owners personal specifications from woods and veneers to leathers and threads.
Iguana Bespoke audio system is tuned to perfection for all scenarios be it open water running or beach front dining.
The decks are cut to each boat with multiple options available from a rugged finish to traditional teak.
