We present the first data of physical properties of the cubic compound Yb3 Ir4 Ge13. An effective magnetic moment well below the full free-ion Yb+ 3 value is found. An abrupt rise in the electrical resistivity of Yb3 Ir4 Ge13 marks the entrance into a charge ordered phase below 60 K. The specific heat of Yb3 Ir4 Ge13 has a very large peak at low temperatures.
