Product Description and Specs

The all-new Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 17T is a fishing machine with comfort, stability, and room for everything you need. Like the original Pro Angler, the 17T is powered by Hobie's MirageDrive pedal system. You'll have the option to set up the fully adjustable Vantage XT Seating, in the in-line tandem configuration, face-to-face social tandem, or as a single. The PA17T is the perfect platform to teach a young one how to fish, take your family member out, or simply fish hard with your best fishing buddy. Fishing rod storage both front and rear holds up to 12 rods; 2 vertical and 10 horizontal. The new H-Rail System allows you to customize accessory placement and comes with 2 H-Rail mounting plates, 2 H-Rail rod stacks, and 2 H-Rail cup holders. Both users can stand and fish in comfort and each cockpit is fitted with a large rectangular hatch with pivoting tackle management system; there's even additional under-seat storage for bringing plenty of tackle boxes. The Pro Angler 17T is Lowrance Ready with pre-installed thru-hull cable plug outlets. The hull will cut through ocean swells and the drop down skeg provides solid tracking over long voyages. With three rudder control steering handles, you can position the boat from any seating location while you or your buddy battles the big one. This vessel has found its niche through human propulsion via the MirageDrive, the ability to launch in no-motor zones or areas with no boat ramp, and minimal maintenance thanks to its durable polyethylene hull and rigid components. It's all about getting out there as often as possible...the Pro Angler 17T is waiting for you and a friend to explore new waters and better your biggest catches. See the videos for more details on the features of the Pro Angler 17T.

The Hobie Pro Angler 17T is awesome! The only problem I have is that it is so heavy and I don't have a cart to pull it around with. I have to have a boat ramp to load or unload from the water. I still am not sure if there is a cart made for the 17T yet. Will buy one in the future if available!

We recently purchased this kayak and are already very pleased with our purchase after using it twice. There are no downsides to this kayak. The fins (mirage) are very simple and easy to put in and take out as well as adjust. The seats are very comfortable. You can easily and safely stand in the kayak while moving without fear of tipping the boat over. The mirage pedals are smooth and easy on the legs. The kayak is easy to maneuver through anything. We took it out yesterday for 4 hours and only came in because of threatening weather conditions. We loaded it with an ice chest, fishing poles and other equipment and still had plenty of room! We both love to fish and this kayak is very easy to fish out of. We were also able to get very close to the local wildlife that we encountered due to the quiet nature of the boat. We bought the trailer that is made for this kayak and it was well worth the investment. It literally only takes minutes to load and unload. We bought two Hobie Kayaks last year but traded up to this one so that we could be together. We are both over 40 and have had every type of boat in the past. None of them can compare to the Pro Angler 17T! Whoever designed this kayak should receive an award! They left NOTHING out! We will be enjoying this purchase for many years to come! Hobie is the best! I would give this kayak 100 starts if possible.

Top Question & Answer
Q: With the Pro Angler 17t being so big, what options are there for hauling it? How is a guy supposed to haul it across the beach to launch it?
A: At this point, Hobie has not come out with a cart specific for the Pro Angler 17T. During our Demo Days we would transport these using Hobie's "Heavy Duty Plug-In Cart". Although this will work, it is more stressful on the cart due to the boats size and will therefore shorten the life span of the cart. More of a temporary fix, until Hobie releases a cart specific to the 17T, you could say.

Q: What is the height of this boat? Is there any possible way to load on to the GMC Sierra which has 7ft long bed with bed extender or something else? Seriously do not have space for trailer in my parking lot. Thank you
A: Even with an extender this is going to be fairly unsafe as the kayak is 17 ft long. The best way to transport would be the trailer as even with the extender it will still be an issue as the extender may not give enough support for the kayak.
