Tigé 24Vé 2010

Wakeboard Boat Review

The Tigé 24Vé is a massive, style-forward wakeboarding boat that churns out ramps all day long. New, rider-friendly, snap-out carpet with a finished floor makes cleaning a breeze, and we can’t say enough about Tigé Boats' new TigéTouch on-board control system. With a few taps of TigéTouch’s easy-to-use screen, the driver has complete control over his wake boat and can focus his attention on the water.

The Wakes

Jack it up, son! This is a big wakeboarding boat that can handle a lot of weight, so be sure to fill the 2,000 pounds of optional stock ballast and add people and more weight to see some world-class peaks. The wakes stay fairly narrow, so don’t be afraid to ride 80 feet or more at 24 to 25 mph. We liked the TAPS2 setting at three or four, but that is your preference.

Don't Miss

Tower of Power We like the upgrade for Tower of Power, including four Wet Sounds speakers powered by Clarion, operated by the standard TigéTouch touch screen. Some 2009 Tigé Boats owners have already traded in their boats for a 2010 just because of TigéTouch. We liked the one-touch All Lights feature, which illuminates the navigation, anchor, cabin, underwater and halogen tower lights simultaneously. At night, the boat looks like an ultra-stylish spacecraft on the water.
