Opposite ends of the spectrum.....Tige good for us wally type that have kids and enjoy bringing guests. SAN is at the top of its game! Great boat for the core and upper-intermediate to advanced. Little less on space and lot more on money! Newer generation Tige's are comin' around but the Nautiques have been there for a long time! Wake is the best I've ever ridden on a SAN. My '03 22V Riders was a compromise for the missus because of space and cost. I do however dream about the SAN and hope when my groms are older, she'll let me upgrade? Tige is also very wide and heavy---be prepared to tow and store. SAN has good features and you are able to mix and match a bunch of packages to come up with just the right options at the right price. You should evaluate what is more important and what caliber of riding you expect? SAN for hardcore and Tige maybe a little more suited for big cruzer----but still has a very nice wake when weighted! Confused enough yet???
