Dramatic Styling and Wide-open Bow
The bold lines and razor-edge styling will definitely turn heads. The RZ2 bow is roomy and, unlike other pickle-fork designs, it’s super dry.
Tigé Alpha Z Tower
The dramatic Tigé Alpha Z tower has both bling and function. Sculpted and engineered to fully integrate with both Tigé styling and structure, the Alpha Z also easily folds to windshield height.
Both cool and super comfortable, the VisionAir mesh captain’s chair features a flip-up bolster.
Transom Activity Center
The fully functional transom activity center is an ideal prep area for riding or just hanging out. It features drink holders and three storage/cooler compartments.
The bow area has wrap-around seating with easy access to dash storage. An optional center bow cushion adds to the versatility and comfort.
The reliable, super-quiet PCM marine engine provides outstanding performance and fuel efficiency for all Tigé models. The RZ2 engine hatch provides easy access.
A Thrill to Ride--Tigé RZ2
By Capt. Robert E. Smith
Tigé’s new combined system puts it all together and makes creating the perfect wake a simple task. This sophisticated MEFI-5 system puts the power of electronics to work to control the throttle, engine, speed, and instrumentation so all you have to do is steer and keep an eye on the person on the line. A CAN bus (Controller Area Network) is the key data exchange component that feeds the necessary information and inputs down a two wire system to make it all work together. What you get is amazing function and precise, intuitive system that is easy to use.
Tigé’s SpeedSet control is a digital speed control like no other device I have seen in the industry. Using a touchpad fingertip control, you deliver the commands and see their results on a “heads-up” display at the helm. No need to take your eyes off the water to make changes and the pad is right next to the throttle for outstanding safety and use. You can even program in the particular speed your buddy likes best and not have to re-enter everything each time they get on the end of the line. 600 data points per second insure no surges, just smooth, steady speed control!
RZ2 Bow Design
The RZ2 features a “pickle fork” shaped bow, but also has a typical bow rider hull entry, so tracking and performance isn’t hindered by the deck space the pickle fork design gives you. The bow area has wrap-around seating with storage below. Seat bottoms are quite comfortable and hinged to make sure they stay on board while underway. Continuing on aft, the walk-through windshield has a unique Lexan windscreen option to keep the cool morning air out of the cockpit.
Seating in the cockpit wraps from just behind the helm seat to the companion station. Corner cushions have a neat flip-over that provides a safe, easy-to-clean step rather than stepping on the premium 34oz marine upholstery. The storage on the port side connects all the way to the bow, so you can easily store long boards and skis. Part of the bench behind the helm seat is drainable and can double as an extra cooler when needed, or a wet locker. If you want to serve snacks on board, an optional table fits in the corner. The companion corner is outfitted with stainless steel drinkholders and inside the glove box is where you will find the Clarion sound system and a 12 volt socket for portable gear.
At the Wheel
If you have the optional professional ballast system, the controls are mounted on the side wall next to the helm chair. An optional stereo remote mounts neatly in the side wall above the built-in armrest. There are three 12volt sockets to the left of the wheel for more portable gear and just above there is a jack for hooking up your MP3 player or iPOD. Lighted power control switches are grouped to the right of the wheel and the Speedset controller is just below. The instrument cluster is just above the wheel and the readouts on the digital gauges are large enough to see in just about any conditions.
The engine is located under the aft section of the sunpad. The professional ballast system tanks are mounted across the stern of this compartment and the batteries are to the starboard side along with the battery switch. An optional swim platform can be added for more pleasure at anchor. The stern features two wet lockers and a center seat pad so your rider can have a comfortable and safe place to boot up in preparation for some fun.
Our test boat came outfitted with a monster tower of power featuring a great sound system and swing away board racks.
The RZ2 measures 22 feet length overall with a beam width of 102 inches. The capacity plate claims 14 people can ride, but they better be great friends! The RZ2 is roomy and I am sure you will get all your friends on-board with room to spare. This model weighs in at 4,150 lbs. and has a 48 gallon fuel cell.
With a 343 horsepower PCM EX343 5.7L, the RZ2 performed well with hole shots at 3.3 seconds and time to plane at 6.5 seconds. Top speed was registered at 45 mph burning 22.3 gph and at 3000 rpm, she was turning 24.4 mph, burning 6.8 gph for a full tank range of 155 miles.
If you are looking for professional quality ride, performance and engineering that is terrific, the RZ2 is going to thrill you. Whether you decide to use it with the standard package or upgrade to pure professional with a ballast system, the RZ2 delivers excellent wakeboard ride and performance.
