The Rotomolded recreational range, Hobie Bravo, Hobie Wave, Hobie Getaway were designed to be quick to rig and easy to sail. They are not plastic race boats, they were designed from the keel up, to be user-friendly, low maintenance, stable, performance craft. * Rigging is heavy duty, PVC covered. * Trampolines are heat welded, * Hull construction is foam sandwich polyethylene which produces a tough shell whilst retaining adequate stiffness. In today’s busy world, Hobie’s rotomolded models, with their simple rigs and ultra-low-maintenance construction, allow busy people to spend their precious spare time sailing……not rigging and fussing about.
Hobie Island Series
The Hobie Mirage Adventure Island and Mirage Tandem Island are setting the sailing world on fire. Equipped with removable outriggers and roller-furling sail these machines really get along under sail, leg or arm power. They can be carried on a roof rack and stored in the garage.
The first Hobie Class Association regatta took place on July 4th, 1968 off Poche Beach, Capistrano, California, a local surfing paradise. A total of six Hobie Cat 14s took part! These were the first six boats made, and they had to race!
From this humble beginning grew one of the world's largest one-design sailing class associations with over 500 fleets in close to 100 countries on every continent, ocean, and sea around the globe.
