Hobie Tandem Island
Sailing has never seemed so simple. When the wind blows, the Tandem Island flies across the water, powered by an expansive, easily tended mainsail.
Hop aboard with a friend. With dual MirageDrives providing pedal power, maneuvering is a snap even when the zephyrs subside. The central hull is pure high-end Hobie with all the expected features: multiple Twist and Seal hatches; a large bow hatch for below-decks storage; lever-operated rudder and centerboard deployment; and dual rudder control. This is Hobie’s ultimate fish hunter, capable of predator teasing trolling speeds. The ‘amas’ 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. Both cockpits have steerage and sail control lines, making it the ideal 2 person sailing kayak.
What we at the Hobie Centre love about the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island;
- We love, love, love The Hobie Mirage Tandem Island for all sorts of reasons here are just a few of them but we could go on all day.
- 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 harbours and estuaries like Poole Harbour; skim over shallow waters, fold in outriggers and explore rivers and creeks, 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!
- Dual controls on steering and sails so no arguments you can take it in turns.
- Only takes 10 minutes to set up ready to go on the water.
- A great platform for learning to sail and tri-maran design means no-capsizes.
- Can be fitted with Evolve Electric Motor Kit for even greater range.
- The best selling boat in the range and we have to admit it is our favourite.
- Come and have a go for yourself and see what we are raving about.
