2014 Tigé R20 Review

Wakeboard Boat Review

The running surface shared by the R20 and RZR is Tigé Boats' most versatile. As a result, both 20-foot models are excellent fits for riders who like to do everything on the water and need a compact boat because they live on a size-restricted waterway, own a smaller tow vehicle or store their boat in a standard garage. But these two boats are offered in two different packages and prize levels to suit different needs and budgets. While the R20 lacks the top-of-the-line features of the RZR, it's outfitted with a solid set of performance standards, including a ballast system, tower and cruise control that make it an incredible value. In fact, the R20 will get the job done for anything from wakeboarding and wakesurfing to wakeskating. Max it out with 1,600 pounds of factory-installed ballast, and it throws a surprisingly big wake. Finally, opt for the new ConvexVX hull extension for the biggest, cleanest, longest surf wave possible on this hull.

The Tigé R20 is the best wakeboard boat for you if: You want the same tried-and-true, versatile running surface and manageable size of the RZR in a lower-tech, lower-cost package.
