The newest addition to the Mirage product line-up is the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island, a 18' 6" Trimaran Sail/Yak that incorporates the patented Hobie Mirage Drive into a unique sailing machine unlike any other sailing craft on the water. The Hobie Tandem Island features a boom-less, roller-furling sail rig similar to the rig on the Hobie Bravo with plenty of sail area for excellent performance, completely manageable from the cockpit with the pull of a line. Two retractable amas fold up against the side of the boat for easy docking, maneuverability, and transport. The cockpit is a stable platform, expanded to a tandem, from the Hobie Mirage Adventure Kayak, offering full versatility as a pedaling kayak when conditions are not convenient for sailing. The Hobie Mirage Drive allows the boat to be pedaled while under sail, or simply pedaled with the sail furled for versatility not found in any other sailboat. The Hobie Tandem Island is loaded with additional standard features such as a centerboard, over-sized Twist and Stow rudder, Turbo Fins on both Mirage Drives, mast and sail cover, and an ama/daggerboard Bag.

Incredible kayak! Easy to maneuver solo or with the whole family on board. Very safe and efficient kayak. I have never sailed before but was up and running in a few hours. Great trolling kayak. I have used in Florida fishing and at home on the lake. Was everything I hoped it would be and more. Incredible!
Best designed and most fun boat I've owned, and I've bought and sold many.
