      Hey, thanks for posting these vintage add/brochures, I have an 86 Caribbean Marauder 18', built it from the hull up. I was in search of some history of my boat, not allot out there, until I came across VJB and this section.

      I really love these old brochures. Wish there was a better picture of the 18' Tahiti Tiger Jet, that's the boat I have

      Thanks for bumping this topic back up. Looking at the pictures I think I may have to take some measurements to see which model I have. All this time I thought it was a Tiger but the way the the front of the hull has a deep V at a steep angle looks more like the Low Profile. I know that angle has a name but I just can't think of it right now, LOL!

      The bubble deck has a rounded bulge on top of the deck just forward of the dashboard. On the "non-bubbles" that area is usually a flat angle. I've seen a brochure for a regular Super Tiger elsewhere that didn't have the bubble, but now that I'm looking at it I'm pretty sure mine is a Low Pro.

      Hmmm maybe someone got mine wrong I agree with you, Mine is identical to the brown and gold one next to the 18' hatchback Tiger-Jet in the brochures up top
