Tige Boats has joined forces with TransWorld WAKEBOARDING to create a special edition of its all-new flagship Z3. The brand-new TransWorld WAKEBOARDING Tige Z3 is the new official boat of the world's leading wakeboarding magazine and the most customized boat Tige has ever created.

The TransWorld WAKEBOARDING Z3 starts with the foundation of Tige's best wakeboard boat and takes it to the next level with all of Tige's top features as well as a host of custom touches. The TransWorld WAKEBOARDING Z3 features Tige's biggest-ever ballast system — a 2,300-pound setup that combines with the ConvexV hull and Taps2 system to shape Tige's premiere wakes for both wakeboarding and wakesurfing. It's also outfitted with two of TransWorld WAKEBOARDING's favorite features for 2012 — the new Clamp 4RCE board racks and View 4RCE 180 mirror. The state-of-the-art racks are the best TransWorld WAKEBOARDING editors have ever tested, while the one-of-a-kind mirror delivers panoramic views of all the action in the boat.

The new TransWorld WAKEBOARDING Tigé Z3 is available in your choice of three custom wraps designed by boat wrap guru Josh Sirlin. Each distinctive wrap is complimented by a host of unique touches, from the black metallic Alpha Z tower and Wet Sounds tower speakers to the TransWorld WAKEBOARDING-branded non-skid swim platform. The special edition is just as unique inside. With its new convertible sunpad and sleek new steering wheel and throttle knob, the interior of the Z3 was already among the best of any wake boat, but Tige designers upped the ante with a slew of singular features. The co-branded Poseidon Mat is as easy on the eyes as it is on your passengers feet, while the custom-colored Medallion gauges and vinyl accents add dashes of bold sophistication.

While the ultra-customized special edition is the new official boat of TransWorld WAKEBOARDING, Team Tige pros and TransWorld WAKEBOARDING editors won't be the only riders to enjoy it. In fact, the TransWorld WAKEBOARDING Tige Z3 is available at your local Tige dealer right now.
