Tigé, Regal unveil new models

Tigé Boats unveiled its 2012 product line in-water at its dealer meeting at The Cliffs Resort at Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas.


The annual event allows the worldwide dealer network to experience firsthand the latest innovations and designs to be introduced in the new lineup.

Tigé highlights the 2012 launch with the introduction of the Z3, a 23-foot boat designed to respond to the latest demands of wakesurfing and wakeboarding.

“We are excited about the addition of the Z3 to our product line,” company president Rick Correll said in a statement. “The Z3 adds a new option to an already strong boat lineup and further validates our exceptional team and continued market growth.”

In line with the new Z3 styling, the 2012 Tigé boat line features new interior design details, enhanced performance features, lighting and audio upgrades, a new tower option and several more additions.

Tigé also will continue to offer its 360 Service Plus program., which covers all mandatory services, including oil, filter, and transmission fluids, for the first three years.

Regal Marine Industries announced that production started on a new 24-foot FasDeck with Regal’s exclusive FasTrac hull.


The roomier Regal 24 FasDeck features an 11-inch longer and six-inch wider cockpit than Regal’s previous model and sports Regal’s UltraLounge aft bench and convertible sun pad. The Regal UltraLounge has a multiposition back rest that is designed to convert from an aft-facing bench seat to a forward-facing bench seat, then to an aft-facing lounger, and lastly to a flat sun pad that is integrated into the cockpit arena seating.

Other new features include a fiberglass dash with color-coordinated, heavy-duty French-stitched vinyl wrap. The dash is available with the RegalVue multifunctional touch-screen monitor, which can provide engine data, performance information, depth, programmable speed control, chart plotting, GPS and engine faults in plain language.

“Our Regal design team and engineers really put a great effort into making the Regal 24 FasDeck an extremely usable sportboat for the whole family,” president and CEO Duane Kuck said in a statement. “And it isn’t just change for novelty’s sake. These are innovations that matter to how you use and enjoy your boat.”
