2018 Hobie Cat Mirage Tandem Island


Hobie Cat
Mirage 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 marlin teasing trolling speeds.
