Tigé Announces New Z-1

ABILENE, TX – Fresh off the big win – the prestigious Buzz Brand of the Year by Water Sports Industry Association – Tige Boats rides the momentum into 2013's boat show season to unveil the new and incomparable Z1.

The buzz keeps growing as Tige's Z1, the younger brother of the highly acclaimed Z3, lands in Tige dealerships in November of 2012. This exceptional 21-foot boat has the capacity to seat 14 passengers and has more space and storage than any other boat in its class. The Z1 brings the contemporary Z series styling to a traditional bow design. "With such a positive response to the Z3, the new Z1 just seemed like a natural progression to round out the Tigé product line," said Rick Correll, Tige President. "We are confident this will give our customers the versatility and unparalleled performance of the Z3, now in a mid-sized boat."

Tige has added sophisticated new features that bring their users to a new level of boating. The Z1, along with the rest of the 2013 Tige line-up, showcases the all-new Bluetooth system that allows its boaters to use a remote control for playlists and audio functions. The high-tech Bluetooth system has the option of The Perfect Pull® app, which let riders upload presets from their mobile device to any Tige boat, creating easy one-touch commands to control speed, wake and ballast settings.

The 2013 Tige boat collection displays eye-catching graphics and all-new luxurious interiors. The lineup also features the Tige Z-Cline upholstered captain’s chair. Customers now have an extended amount of choices and can choose a range of customized features including pearl metallic finishes and steering wheel options by Italy’s Isotta.

Tige is continuously breaking new ground on the water as they expand and improve their patented designs. The updated Alpha Z tower features the ingenious Clamp 4rce swivel board racks, with easy one-hand operation and one-button release. The popular Alpha Z tower now has integrated LED lights in four different colors to create an ambient glow throughout the cabin. Tige‘s WetSounds power amps and tower speakers deliver the perfect soundtrack for a day on the water.

The patented Convex V hull has become the signature feature for every Tige model. Now in its 10th year, the Convex V hull has continued to improve its performance, meanwhile silencing the leery. Riders and critics alike are spreading the word of the hull’s competitive advantages: A superior wake for boarders and surfers alike, with new refinements for wake surfing.

Tige’s state-of-the-art boats are packed with a V-8 engine by PCM Marine Engines. This powerful, low emission engine ranges from 343 to an epic 550 supercharged horsepower. Combined with the Convex V hull, Tige owners will experience much higher fuel efficiency.
