Hobie Adventure Island
How do you improve on an already great kayak? Attach the Tandem Island’s ‘ama’ floats and ‘aka’ crossbars (out-riggers) and unfurl its square-topped sail, and you have a stable sailing craft whose seafaring heritage stretches back to the South Pacific. A centreboard prevents lateral slip, an upgraded rudder and rudder assembly provides control in a breeze; the out-riggers easily fold parallel against the hull to simplify negotiating tight spots or docking. Or unbolt the sailing kit and enjoy a quiet evening of kayaking.
What we at the Hobie Centre love about the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island;
- No more disappointing days where you can’t get out on the water. You can take it out in a force 0 to a force 6 and everything in between.
- The furling sail means use as much or as little as you need for the conditions
- Explore a much wider area in much less time than you could on an ordinary kayak.
- We love this boat because it is so perfect for Poole Harbour; skim over shallow waters, fold in outriggers and explore narrow rivers, head out to sea for some fun, navigate between moored yachts with ease.
- Its load carrying capacity means that the trampolines are ideal for stowing camping/fishing gear, children and even pets!
- Can be fitted with Evolve motor kit for even greater range.
- And the best thing no capsizes, great to getting to grips with sailing without the punishment.
