The Technology is Ours the Wake is Yours
ConvexV Taps²

Tigé has patented its masterfully engineered ConvexV hull and TAPS2 technology, making our boats the first and only inboards to feature full trim capability.

Tigé’s superior ConvexV hull is shaped like the bottom of a wakeboard and curves up at the transom, which provides a full range of wake shaping capability. Instead of a permanent hook, TAPS² gives you precise control over the running attitude and wake shape. Dial in the perfect wake for any sport, rider or skill level. A huge, long, deep-pocket surf wave on both sides of the boat allows any style surfer to master their tricks while staying in the sweet spot.

ConvexV hull and TAPS² also work together to reduce drag, giving Tigé the greatest fuel efficiency of any inboard. The ability to make precise adjustments also allows the driver to smooth the ride, reduce noise and maximize passenger comfort and safety.

ConvexV hull and TAPS², Tigé’s patented system, is often imitated but never duplicated. Other manufacturers offer wake plates and drag hardware, but without the ConvexV hull shape they are unable to reproduce our results. It’s no wonder Tigé is the clear choice for boating enthusiasts who crave the superior handling and wake performance of an inboard.

Trim for Wake Versatility, Performance and More
Tigé is the only inboard that allows you to go from a wakeboarding wake to a slalom wake in less than five seconds. No tanks to fill or empty, no dangerous drag hardware to deploy…just push the TAPS² button and you’re ready to go. But instant wake versatility is just one of the benefits of the world’s only trimmable inboard.

No Ballast…No Worries
All other inboards require excessive ballast or drag hardware to produce even entry–level wakeboarding wakes. It’s a fact of life that is locked–into the hooked, static hull design. Well, Tigé has changed all that. With its patented rocker shape and full trim capability, the Tigé ConvexV hull settles naturally at wakeboarding or surfing speeds, creating tremendous water displacement and huge wakes before you even touch the ballast fill button. Want to boost the Tigé wake even more? You’ll find that your Tigé needs far less ballast than all other inboards to achieve the same pro–level results.

Wedges and Weight Drown Performance
Drag hardware makes an inboard drive like a bulldozer. Try a tight turn with the hydrofoil deployed…so much for nimble inboard handling. In contrast, the trimmable Tigé ConvexV hull and TAPS² technology dramatically enhance boat performance and handling while safely delivering outstanding world–class wakes.

Higher Top Speed Quicker Acceleration
Adjusting TAPS² allows you to precisely trim the ConvexV hull to reduce drag, achieve higher top speeds and quicker acceleration without increasing horsepower. Stern–drive enthusiasts know what we’re talking about.

Big Boost in Fuel Economy
Reducing drag through precise hull trim also significantly reduces fuel use, making Tigé the world’s most fuel–efficient inboard. By design, all other inboards are stuck with excessive drag and excessive fuel consumption. Add the required hydrofoil drag hardware plus thousands of pounds of ballast and you can understand why all other inboards spend so much time at the gas pump.

Without the Convex V Rocker…a Plate is Just a Plate
So–called “wake plates” on other inboards are only sad imitations of proven Tigé technology. All other inboards have a permanent hook in the hull that locks the boat into a fixed, bow–down running attitude. The hook prevents the bow from rising and prohibits variable trim. The dramatic success of TAPS² technology relies on the patented rocker shape of the ConvexV hull, which allows a full range of hull movement up and down. Running attitude is quickly adjusted by repositioning TAPS². That’s why TAPS² works and all the imitators are simply empty plates.

Dial in Comfort, Safety and a Dry Ride
Full trim capability is a big part of why the Tigé ride and safety are superior to all other inboards. The ability to make precise adjustments to running attitude allows the driver to soften the ride, reduce noise and maximize passenger comfort and safety. Trimming in chop and rough conditions also keeps passengers dry and happy.

Benefits of Hull Trim…No Compromise
Tigé is the clear choice for stern–drive enthusiasts who crave the superior handling and wake performance of an inboard. Trade that bulky, wake–spoiling stern drive unit for the clear advantages of the only inboard that delivers all the benefits of full trim capability plus world–class watersports performance unmatched by any other boat.

The Most Extraordinary Surf Wakes
Tigé is the only inboard that can produce an outstanding surf wake on either side. Full trim capability and the unique shape of the ConvexV hull allow you to dial in port or starboard side to get a clean sweet spot with enough juice to keep you going all day.
