The lightweight, stackable Hobie Kona tandem features all the technology that Hobie customers have come to expect. At 11 feet 6 inches, it is short for a tandem kayak, but stable and easy to maneuver either with a friend or solo. Plenty of gear will fit in the large cargo area or under the Bungee® tie-downs. It also features Hobie’s mesh-covered stowage pockets, two molded-in cup holders, Twist and Seal hatches for storage, and plenty of other nooks and crannies for smaller items.
In two-person configuration, it provides a stable ride and snappy, spin-in-a-second performance; when paddling alone, the boat’s molded center seat keeps the boat well trimmed and responsive. The Kona’s rotomolded polyethylene hull couples a wide beam with a relatively short waterline, delivering the responsive, stable performance usually found on longer boats. Carrying handles and on-hull paddle storage simplify portaging, and the deluxe, adjustable padded seats support your back and encourage longer excursions.
When space is at a premium, the Kona hull shape allows for temporarily nesting the boat with another one, keeping pathways clear when the boats are not in use. ( See your owners manual for proper storage recommendations. )
