Tige donates boat to benefit Toys for Tots


To benefit the Wake World's Toys for Tots this year, Tigé Boats donated a 2010 Z1 for bid on eBay Motors.

All proceeds from the auction will go to the charity and the boat can be found here. The bidding will close Wednesday.

In addition to the Z1, the winner will also receive an opportunity to tour the Tigé Boats headquarters in Abilene, Texas, with their family and meet the staff, as well as designers and engineers. The package includes a $500 gas card, one-night hotel accommodations and $100 dinner certificate.

The Z1 includes a PCM ProSport 5.0 Liter 275-hp engine and a tandem axle trailer with brakes. The winner of the auction will pay shipping if they choose not to accept the factory-direct delivery package, tax, title, license, upgrades, options and related fees.
