NEW! 2017 Hobie Island SOLO (Austin Canoe & Kayak)

March 16, 2017

Picked up my new boat!  The 2017 Hobie Island Solo.

The newest addition to the Mirage product line-up is the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island, a 16' Trimaran "Sail/Yak" that incorporates the patented Hobie MirageDrive into a unique sailing machine unlike any other sailing craft on the water. Detach the crossbars, akas and amas and you have an adventure-touring kayak; reattach it all, step the rig and you have a nimble trimaran. A roller-furling, vertically battened mainsail provides lift, a daggerboard prevents lateral slip, and the amas tuck parallel against the rotomolded polyethylene hull for docking. Multiple hatches and on-deck stowage encourage multi-day adventures, and the MirageDrive offers paddle-free locomotion when kayaking or when the wind scatters, making it easy to get home. The Hobie Adventure Island also makes for a great fishing platform.

• A boom-less, roller-furling sail rig; MirageDrive pedal system with standard fins
• Two retractable amas that fold up against the side of the boat
• Daggerboard; oversized "Twist and Stow" rudder
• Mast and Sail Cover; and an Ama/Daggerboard bag
• Includes Turbo Fins
