    Default New to me Tahiti

    I just picked this Tahiti up this week. It's 18ft and it is a 1976. Does anybody know the model of the boat? Thanks for the help

    I bought a 76' Tahiti tiger new and it didnt look like that. There was a Tiger and a Super tiger if I remember. They had a little step on the side rail. Yours looks more like a Challenger to me.

    It's a Super Tiger, splash of the Southwind, which is what the Hawaiian and Challengers and dozens of other makes were as well.

    glad somebody else said it! Back in the day southwind would only pump so many hulls out of a single mold then build another mold. It is the most splashed mold for the 70'S in a jet boat 18V squirt. And alot had been layed up in an over worked molds But not by southwind they would sell them off to other manufactures for southwind splashes with there own label on them only because that was the best working hull in that decade.
