Tige Australia announces alliance with Greg Murphy Racing!
24th December 2003

After months of negotiation Tige Boats Australia officially announced today that they have entered a long-term endorsement contract with Greg Murphy Racing to co brand a new boat under the Tige and Greg Murphy Racing Marquis for the 2004 production year.

Arguably one of the hottest drivers in the V8 Super Car Series for 2003 Murphy narrowly missed taking the overall title while in contention up to the last race of the season at Sydney’s Eastern Creek race way.

"We are very excited about partnering with Murph to bring this new boat to the Australian and New Zealand market for 2004.” Said Australian Director of Tige Boats Adam Houlahan. “Greg has had a lot of input into the standard features that will be on offer and it will certainly stand out from the crowd.”
The first Greg Murphy Racing edition will come off the production line in late January 2004 and will be immediately shipped to Murph for his approval, with stock available through all Australian and New Zealand Tige Dealers from March 2004.

"I am stoked to be working with Tige on this project, we have been keen to develop a boat under the Greg Murphy Racing banner for some time,” said Murphy. “Tige is one of the most innovative manufacturers in the world, and TAPS has revolutionized the inboard boat market since it’s development and I would not want to run a boat with out it .”
