It was over 28 years ago when Tige Boats officially entered the marine industry and presented its first inboard to the world. It started as most great ideas do, from the belief that things could be different, that things could be better.

From Tige's very first boat in the water, being named Rookie of the Year by Waterski Magazine, to the introduction of our wake-shaping technology that has shaped the industry, we've continued to innovate and refine the art and craft of boat building year after year. Since our beginning, we have remained a family owned business placing relationships with our owners, dealer network and vendors as a priority.

Today, Tige keeps these values alive with one common goal in mind—to make your ride better than anything else on the water. Through a refined sense of aesthetics, precision manufacturing, and a love for watersports, we have set new standards in boat design and engineering. By personally engaging with and using our own products, we have introduced many innovative technologies and industry firsts, each one created to make your time behind the wheel or on your board as perfect as possible.


Charlie Pigeon, Owner/Founder and CEO of Tigé, worked many years as an executive for other leading wake boat brands, but saw the opportunity to put the customers experience first. 


The Tigé revolution begins. The first model—2000SLM Comp
is voted Rookie of the Year. 


Tigé’s performance and engineering proves superior and expands to international markets. Today, Tigé has a family of sales and service dealers in 13 countries worldwide. 


Making waves—again. Tigé is granted its first patent for TAPS (Tigé Adjustable Performance System) wake-shaping technology. 


TAPS advances to its second generation with the addition of a hydraulic wake plate for on-the-fly adjustments, making Tigé the first and only inboard with full-trim capability. 


Tigé is named the Official Towboat of the IWSF World Wakeboard Championship Series and launches the first worldwide wakeboard tour stopping in France, South Africa, Japan, Brazil, Australia, and Canada. 


The patented Convex V Hull is introduced to work hand-in-hand with TAPS, making it easier than ever to dial pro-level wakes.


Tigé begins production at its brand-new, state-of-the-art factory and world headquarters in Abilene, Texas. 


Another Tigé first. TigéTouch is introduced as the first touchscreen control panel in the inboard market. 


Tigé’s excellence in product development, branding, and enthusiasm wins the Buzz Brand of the Year through the WSIA. 


More patents are awarded to Tigé that will contribute to future new product development. 


TAPS advances into its 3rd generation—TAPS 3, the most versatile technology to hit the market. 


Tigé gains power again. The Alpha E2 Electric Powered Tower hits the market and sparks another revolution. The Alpha E2 was voted WakeWorld’s Innovation of the Year in its first year. 


By partnering with the most progressive and like-minded brands and athletes such as Bethany Hamilton, Josh Kerr, and Alex Laughlin, the Tigé presence has never been more prominent.
