Tige is focused on quality not quantity! Twenty years of industry leading innovation and uncompromising boat design, Tige is committed to being the best. The Tige name
Tye-guh) is based on “Tiger” the childhood nickname of company founder Charlie
Pigeon. Dropping the “r” and adding an accent over the “é” gave the name a
European flair that complimented the flowing, euro–design of the company’s
first boat models. Founded in 1991, Tige’s headquarters
houses the world’s most advanced inboard manufacturing facility. They are proud
to be a debt-free company not having to answer to investors which allows them
to annually re-invest into themselves, instead of pulling profits and building
cheaper watercraft like so many public owned companies.
Convex VX and Taps
Building on the Convex V hull technology, Tige’s latest
patented innovation, is the Convex VX, a fiberglass hull extension device
designed to enhance the running surface of your Tige at wakesurf speeds. The
Convex VX takes Tige’s pro-level wave to insane heights, as it is longer,
stronger, and more powerful than any other boat on the water. The extension
also creates a smooth, deep pocket making the best wave even better allowing
any style surfer to stay in their sweet spot and not to mention, Tige boats sit deeper in the water so they make better wakes! The ConvexV and TAPS² (Tige Adjustable Performance System) work together to
reduce drag, giving Tige the greatest fuel efficiency of any inboard according
to Boattest.com, Convex V hull can save up to 25-30% !
A simple touch is all it takes for you to control your entire onboard
experience. The industry’s first touch screen control system, TigeTouch is
truly pure genius. Positioned just to the right of your steering wheel, next to
the throttle, this easy-to-use touch screen resembles an iPhone or iPad.
Designed to be extremely user-friendly, TigeTouch features a home button and
options allowing you to call up your
personal surf wave, or your perfect wakeboard setting. It’s just so simple
making your day on the water that much more enjoyable!
Design, Details and Construction
Tige builds their boats for offshore water conditions not
for man-made ski lakes, with that in mind every inch of a Tige has been
carefully thought out. Seats and flooring are built using the “monolithic
construction” concept (one piece fiberglass), meaning they are molded as one
piece for strength, rigidity and reliability.
Interiors are hand upholstered in-house, using a four-way stretch vinyl
and stitched with GORE TENERA thread for durability and threads are stain, UV,
and mildew resistant. We find that with Tige, you don’t have to choose luxury
vs. practicality - they are one!
Ultimate 360 Service Plus Plan
The return on your investment in a Tige should be a
lifetime of fun. This translates into the first three years of bow to stern
worry-free ownership. This includes your oil & filter changes, transmission
fluid changes, and two impellers, the industry’s first most comprehensive
The engine is the heart of the boat, only PCM can boast the lowest
failure rate, the quietest running, and lowest warranty issues – all according
to JD Powers and Associates. This is why Tige has partnered with the most
reliable, award-winning, inboard engine manufacturer, Pleasurecraft MarineEngines (PCM). PCM utilizes two fuel pumps where others have only one, and has
a fuel reservoir where others have none. That translates into instant starts,
no vapor lock and constant fuel flow in all conditions, including choppy waters
and tight turns.
Alpha Z Tower
Tiges unique fully collapsible cast aluminum structure is the most
solid, rattle-free tower available. Sculpted and engineered for maximum
strength and versatility, the Alpha Z sets a new standard in tower design and
functionality. It’s easy for one person to collapse right on the lake, and its
seamless design looks amazing exclusive to Tige!
Tige is all about safety! They have designed their boats
to sit deeper in the water and TAPS (Tige Adjustable Performance System) gives
you precise control over the running attitude, and wake shape. TAPS also allows
you to run your bow higher during those rocky conditions.
Wake surfing is a sport that’s been exploding on the
water and if you want to jump on board and surf like a pro Tige is the only way
to go! Insane waves on both sides of the water are what to expect from the
Convex V hull. While others are fiddling with equipment, you will need no
modifications. Surfs Up!
Lifetime Plus Warranty
The title says it all “Lifetime Plus Warranty”. A company
that truly stands behind the quality of their product, Tige will completely
replace your boat if structural issues occur; including degradation and they guarantee
the wood will not rot and trust us that has happened. There is no other warranty comparison out
there in the inboard industry!
