In an open letter to the marine industry, their customers and suppliers, Tige Boats CEO Charlie Pigeon recently thanked everyone as he announced their 25th anniversary!
|THANKS TO THOUSANDS OF TIGE OWNERS WORLDWIDE,
WE ARE EXTREMELY PROUD TO BE CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF BUILDING TIGE BOATS!
| Over the past 40 years, I have had the honor and opportunity to be a key player in many of the brands and products that have created the watersports boat market. I have had a significant hand in the development and design of some of the greatest selling boats of all time, and have been a leader and visionary in a core group of pioneers and professional athletes that took the watersports industry mainstream.With past leadership roles in Mastercraft and Malibu, I decided to take a risk — all because I knew that our industry had an experience for our customer that had yet to be offered. So began Tige Boats in 1991.
We came on strong right out of the gate with our very first boat in the water being named Rookie of the Year by Waterski Magazine, and we’ve kept our eyes on the future ever since. As our innovations have continued, so has our core value of keeping your experience first, which is validated by 11 years of award-winning customer satisfaction.
I may not be the young guy any more, but I’m still at it every day. I am very privileged to work daily alongside some of the world’s most passionate and talented people.
Together, we have spent countless hours learning, listening, and refining. Shaping the future of our industry is more than just a job — it’s our purpose and what drives us every day.
We have a dedication and team spirit like never before, and we are continuously innovating to establish new benchmarks in everything we do. With the same dedication and passion that Tige was founded on, I have never been more excited to present a lineup like I am in 2016.
We’ve come a long way in a short 25 years. To each and every Tige owner, I am sincerely grateful to you, and if you are experiencing Tige Boats for the first time, I am thrilled to be the first to welcome you to join our growing family.
Founder and CEO, Tige Boats
