Deep freeboard and broad base provide a nice sense of security and a stable ride for passengers. 2003 Tige 21i - R 2003 Tige 21i - R "Very Clean! Low Hours!" 2003 Tige 21i Type R... Then let the boat revert back to its true nature an extra-wide extra-edgy wakeboarding machine. This model is the extreme version of the 21i Limited in both style and wakeboarding performance. Lift up the gull-wing sun pad to access the rear storage locker and find a lot more hidden space under the bow seats for all the other bulky gear you brought along. Here s what we re talking about. the super-wide 102-inch beam really opens up the interior space and storage. You might also say forget it to any beam not as wide as this boat s 102-inch expanse. Germaine Marine Boats Ski and Wakeboard 8111 PSN . the ConvexV hull and TAPS plate work together to tailor wakes from recreational skiing to advanced riding. Bold hull graphics help define the boat with wakeboarding style. A two- or four-bag system can augment the already formidable 600-pound semipermanent carpeted ballast for a total of 1 600 pounds of wake-carving weight. the Lowdown: Massive ballast options offer up to 1 600 pounds of weight for extreme wakes. When we say direct-drive wakeboard boat what are the first words that come to mind Some people might say uncool cramped even meek. Bolder graphics and a showy tower embody the cool factor while a much more serious ballast configuration combined with the TAPS-variable ConvexV hull transforms calm slalom wakes into monstrous swells. the rear bench can accommodate five adults a rare feat. For More information please call 480-655-9055 ask for Aaron.. Let s play a quick game of word association. Rear bench can seat the rears of five adults and converts to skybox seating both impressive feats. Even better that seating converts into a rear-facing skybox for a choice view of the aquatic action. Take a look at the Tige 21i Type R though and you ll be saying sweet spacious even sick. the observer s seat the walkways around the engine box and the swim platform are especially spacious. This is an inboard at heart after all. Of course this Type R doesn t ignore its Type S users; slalom skiers can have their fun too. Only $24 995................................................................................... Just dump the optional ballast and dial down TAPS to your favorite setting for small skiing wakes that will give you a recreational set on the open water. Riding behind it on pro-level wakes you may forget this is a direct-drive though the driver will appreciate the inboard handling. ........................................................................................................................ the extra width opens up space where you need it most. the TAPS shift-on-the-fly system can customize the ramp length and vert size...

I am selling my 2007 Tige 22i - 22' boat due to sickness, as I cannot use the boat anymore. This boat has treated my family well throughout the years, and has always been kept in perfect condition, as I am the original owner and I keep my vehicles meticulously clean. The Tige has been garaged (when not in use) since its purchase when it was new in 2007 and has had the proper winterizing steps taken each year. There are only 254 hours on the boat and it has a clear title. I also have original paperwork and additional documents should the purchaser desire them. The boat is being stored in my garage shop in Bismarck ND and can either be picked up from there upon purchase, or trailered to purchaser depending on distance. Price is $34,900 but I am open to other offers depending on circumstance. Hours: 254 Original Owner Garaged since new Clear Title Platinum interior package - Engine: 1 x 340-hp GM Vortec 5.7L MPI Cruise: Tigé SpeedSet Tower: Tigé E Series with quick-release pin Racks: Swivel Wake: TAPS 2 wake adjustment system Stereo: Tower of Power System including AM/FM/CD Clarion deck, six Kicker speakers, amp, subwoofer, armrest remote. Cup holders: Stainless steel Rub rail: Stainless steel Trailer: Tandem axle with disc brakes Misc.: Bimini top, EIDB (dual batteries), billet mirror bracket, Drop-in lexan wind screen, Carpeted fiberglass swim platform, Shark eye bow lights SPECS Passengers: 10 Dry weight: 3,895 lb. Draft: 26 in. Load capacity: 1,442 lb. Fuel capacity: 47 gal. Storage capacity: 35.3 cu. ft. Bow: 19.3 cu. ft. Rear: 16 cu. ft. Platform: 10.9 sq. ft. Interior gunwale height: 27 in. Sun-pad area: 6.8 sq. ft. At the Helm - A flip-up bolster seat provides excellent visibility, and a standard ski mirror allows the driver to keep an eye on the action. The Faria analog instruments are well-placed for visibility and controls and switches are easy to reach. Speed, air/water temperature and digital depth are all standard. The TAPS system indicator makes it easy to change from wakeboard to slalom positions or anywhere in between. TAPS responds quickly to the driver's command, changing the wake characteristics for boarders and skiers at the touch of a button. The Tigé Difference What makes Tigé boats so special? The key is in the patented "Convex V" hull shape and the "TAPS" control plate. What you get is precise, instant, infinitely adjustable wake configuring. This innovative technology has earned Tigé a number of awards. It allows the driver to accommodate both skiers and boarders of all levels; ideal for the novice in the family as well as the expert. Besides the performance versatility, you can trim the boat to comfortably handle bigger chop than you'd expect in a watersports boat of this size. The hull shape also requires less power to do the job. Standard engines are smaller than their competitors, resulting in a lower purchase price and lower fuel operating costs. Out on the Water This is where you really see what these boats are all about. With the TAPS control in the wakeboard position, the boat doesn't rise up to a plane as you accelerate. Instead, the non-planing hull produces the kind of huge wake that boarders love at the speed they need. By lowering the plate, you can regulate the size of your wake. With TAPS in the ski position the bow drops, the boat planes out in 3.5 seconds, and the 22i offers ideal slalom conditions. The addition of optional electronic speed control allows the driver to precisely duplicate the combination of settings for the most demanding riders. Tigé went to the trouble of consulting with skiers and boarders during the design process, to find out what they most wanted in terms of wake size and shape. 22i Specifics and Performance The overall length measures 21-feet 8-inches and the beam is a wide 102". The 22i weighs 3,895 pounds and carries 47 gallons of fuel. Construction specs are equally as impressive. Their boats apparently weigh 400-800 pounds more than most others of similar size, because Tigé bonds their hull and deck into a single solid fiberglass unit. Seat bases and other deck furniture are molded into the hull, not screwed onto the deck as is typical. This adds structural integrity to the entire vessel.
