With the first major redesign of the best-selling Mirage Outback in over a decade, Hobie® has single-handedly advanced the sport of kayak fishing.

This fully-loaded fishing machine is built for every conceivable fishing expedition. An extra-wide standing deck offers an improved casting platform and convenient vantage point for sight fishing while the revolutionary Guardian Transducer Shield gives you multidimensional vision below. The new Vantage CTW seat provides extra width for unmatched room and comfort. Powered by the MirageDrive 180 with ARC Cranks + Turbo Fins – now standard on all Outbacks – this fine-tuned angling vessel is highly versatile, fast, quiet, and exceedingly nimble.

Pricing for Slate Blue, Papaya Orange, Hibiscus Red, Ivory Dune or Seagrass Green – $4,190
Pricing for Camo model – $4,390

We are now taking pre-orders for the new Outback, please give us a call on 3890 8650 for further information or pop into store.

Springtime Spruce Up

Looking to treat your Mirage Compass, Outback or Pro Angler this spring? Add the Powerpole Micro Shallow Water Anchor to your kayak and enjoy the simplicity of pushing a button and holding your position. An effective tool on the flats, the Powerpole can also be used in deeper water as a drogue.

We have some slightly used Powerpoles in stock, ready to install. Call, email or drop into store to find out more.

Boat Show Wrap-up

We would like to say a massive thank you to all those who came and visited us at the Brisbane Boat Show. It’s always nice to be able to showcase our products on the impressive Hobie® Cat Australia stand – and even better to be able to demonstrate our range right beside us in the pool this year.

The new Mirage® Compass was hit with visitors to the stand and so to Mirage Eclipse. The look of astonishment on showgoers faces when they see how Hobie products function is a testament to the Company and their endless pursuit to create premium quality watercraft.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Thank you and farewell

After owning and operating Sunstate Hobie for twenty-seven years, we have decided to pass the helm, to enable us to spend more time on the watercraft that we have so proudly provided for such a long time.

As of Tuesday October 2, 2018, Gordon and Lindy McGillivray will be the new owners of Sunstate Hobie. They will operate from the Rivergate premises at 15/17 Rivergate Place, Murarrie.

The Kawana store will close on September 15th 2018.

From humble beginnings of selling Hobie parts from a tackle box at the beach, to our first “shop” in the backyard shed of our home, our business has grown to what it is today, due to your support & loyalty. Our heartfelt thanks is extended to all our customers, some of whom have been with us for the entire duration of our Sunstate Hobie life. Your friendship will be always treasured.

As we move into the next phase of our life we intend to be found not far from the Wind, Waves and Water in true Hobie Alter form.

Looking forward to seeing you out there,

Mal & Trish Gray
