Ski Boat Review
The Tige Boats RZ2 has a lot going for it. As the flagship vessel in Tige Boats’ lineup of stylish, high-performance, versatile wakeboard boats, it meets the demands of the serious wakeboarder as much as the family that likes to mix it up on the water. Designed with an expansive 102-inch beam and a deep, spacious interior layout, this Tige wakeboard boat will keep a crew of 15 comfortable and dry, even when the agile hull is aggressively put through its paces. New for 2010, the Tige RZ2 comes equipped with the industry’s first touch-screen interface that puts the driver in complete control of the boat’s components.
Attention to detail is everywhere you look in this wakeboard boat, and the Tige RZ2’s stylish upholstery designs are backed with thick, supportive, high-density foam that puts passengers at ease. The wakeboard boat’s wide, pickle-fork open bow lends itself to more activity up front with multiple drink holders and impressive below-seat storage space.
Tige Boats makes it easy to customize your wake with the TAPS2 wake plate and the 2,000-pound upgraded ballast system. With this optimized setup you get big swells that are perfectly groomed for intermediate to advanced wakeboarders to progress and learn new tricks. You’ll also be amazed by the sheer volume and power of the surfing wake.
1. Sweet dash display: A sporty dash console gives the captain phenomenal lake visibility while the entire wakeboard boat’s functions can be controlled in a user-friendly, touch-screen display located close to the throttle.
2. Easy cleanings: Snap-in removable carpeting on a nonskid fiberglass deck gives boaters options while ensuring easy cleanups.
3. Robust engine: The optional PCM ZR 409 gives the Tige RZ2 exceptional power out of the hole and outstanding top-end speed.
