Tige 21i Limited
Keep both a ski and a wakeboard handy when you're out on the Tige 21i Limited, because chances are you can get both wet. The TAPS2 system will quickly change the wake from open-water skiing to wakeboarding. And speaking of changing, the reversible Skybox seating is designed for quick changes as well. The rear seat has the standard forward-facing position, but it easily turns around so five passengers can watch the action off the back of the boat.
The 21i Limited is roomy for an inboard – very wide with a deep freeboard. Families and groups of friends will enjoy the 40-can cooler and multiple cup holders, the digital depth finder, the textured G&T 34-ounce four-way stretch vinyl and textured nonskid inlays.
The excellent driving prowess of the 21i is undeniable. With its ConvexV hull design and composite construction method, it rides rock-solid in choppy conditions. The Tige 21i can really do it all!
Though it's slalom course capable, we found the 21i Limited best for open water free-skiing. For such a beamy boat, the wakes are fairly narrow with just a touch of hardness, satisfying the family that likes to split their time between skiing and wakeboarding.
The wake is defined and peaky with a steep transition. But be ready for some big air, especially with the double-ups. Because of the narrow window for landing, you might want to ride with a shorter line length. In regards to wake size, most riders will be stoked with Tige's optional built-in ballast and one or two additional sacs with the TAPS2 at 6 or 7.
* A multisport boat that leans more toward the wakeboarding side – because of the spray at shortline, longer line lengths are preferred.
* Equipped with an extremely large gull wing storage locker.
* Optional 850 pounds of built-in ballast will take care of advanced riders.
* Reversible Skybox seating for five adults is great for weight distribution and for flexible viewing choices.
* New standard driver's seat with flip-up bolster and innerspring-enhanced seat base.
