Don't Know How to Sail?

Dont Worry !

Hobie Islands are simple and easy boats to sail. They are suitable for beginners, right up to experienced sailors. The furling mainsail adds a degree of safety and security, to enable easy beach launches and returns as well as easy handling in strong winds. The amazing Mirage Drive system helps when there is no wind or when you simply want to convert back to a basic kayak and go for a pedal.

 Check out our sailing guides if you can use some help getting started. We offer free tuition wityh new Island and Tandem Island purchases. The South East QLD Island Club meets regularly for cruising in company outings.

The Hobie Island Club is a place to meet other Hobie Mirage Adventure Island and Hobie Mirage Tandem Island owners to share passions for the waterways and oceans of our world.

Here in Queensland we have a very active Island club that conducts sail events each month and offers new sailors instructions and guidance to get the most out of their new Island.

An Absolute Joy

on the water

An absolute joy on the water, the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island is an impressively approachable trimaran sailing kayak.

Ride the wind: A roller-furling, vertically battened mainsail provides lift, a retractable centerboard prevents lateral slip, and the larger amas tuck parallel against the rotomolded polyethylene hull for docking. Multiple hatches, on-deck stowage and Vantage CT Seating encourage multi-day adventures, and the MirageDrive with Glide Technology offers paddle-free locomotion when the wind scatters, making it easy to get home. The “AI” is an exceptional bluewater-capable fishing platform. Equip the accessory trampoline kit for walk-around stability. Flexible too; use it with just a single ama or leave the sail at home to pedal or paddle.

Fast, Fun and Versatile

options

Fast, fun and versatile, the Hobie Mirage® Adventure Island gives you options. Detach the akas and amas and you have a super-quick, super-fun kayak. Attach the new Aka II die-cast crossbars and ama side floats, step the sailing rig and you have a stable sailing craft whose seafaring heritage stretches back to the South Pacific. A roller-furling, vertically battened mainsail makes reducing sail a snap and the MirageDrive® provides power when the wind is light or when you’re kayaking. A daggerboard prevents lateral slip, the upgraded dynamic rudder assembly provides plenty of helm control in a breeze and the amas easily fold against the hull to simplify negotiating tight spots or docking.

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 marlin teasing trolling speeds.

The ungainly paddle is replaced by the sheer efficiency of the MirageDrive 180, the original pedal kayak drive. With the largest human muscle group now in play, kayaking becomes easier and more efficient than ever.
