TAHOE Boats introduces new boat model designed to get more families boating

Brand-new T16 model leverages innovative design techniques to make newest TAHOE more affordable and easier to tow

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – TAHOE Boats today announced the all-new T16, a boat engineered with families in mind. Using innovative technology, the T16 delivers a lightweight design for easy towing and better affordability with an uncompromising commitment to quality and performance, cornerstones of the White River Marine Group family of boat brands.

“The brand new T16 will make watersports and fishing accessible for more families across the country,” said White River Marine Group Marketing Director Maurice Bowen. “Using an innovative design and build process, we’re expanding the market and making this new model lighter, easier to tow and more affordable without sacrificing any of the performance and quality our customers have come to expect.”

The TAHOE T16 was designed and built in the U.S. leveraging innovative techniques for the marine industry. White River Marine Group, the marine manufacturing arm of Bass Pro Shops, worked with 3D-printing company, Thermwood, using Large Scale Additive Machine (LSAM) technology to custom-print tools used to manufacture the boat’s hull-the first time 3D printing has been used on boat production at this scale. This boat-building advancement led to greater efficiency in the planning, design and construction of the T16.

Features of the T16

Designed with families in mind, the T16 offers seating for up to six passengers. Molded, gel-coated storage below the seats allows for easy compartment cleaning. Like other TAHOE boats, the T16 features a sport steering wheel, swim platforms and a telescoping four-step boarding ladder. The all-new T16 is available in 14 different color and graphic combinations.

The T16 comes equipped with either a 60- or 75-horsepower Mercury outboard motor, powering speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. Lightly loaded with the 60HP, it will use an average of 2.6 gallons of fuel per hour at 4,000 RPMs for a range of approximately 100 miles. Its average weight, including boat, motor and trailer, is 2,200 pounds, making the T16 easy to tow behind a mid-sized vehicle. For more information on the TAHOE T16, visit tahoeboats.com.
