The Quest 13 is now Lowrance-Ready and features a higher capacity bow hatch, center console with tackle box bungee tie-downs with rod storage, two drink holders, map pockets, and a raised floor for a drier ride.

Review: I bought my Quest when Hobie still made them in orange. It has seen rough water on the bays of Houston and has been shark fishing in the Gulf. When it comes to handling the waves the boat will cut right through them which means the cockpit will fill with water but drain just before the next wave. I love that it can go from the surf to flat water and when the wind comes a blowing the low profile helps keep it from blowing around. I have used it in fast water and the round sides help keep it from being flipped in the fast eddies. I can quickly convert from a fishing platform to a nice touring style boat. I have paddled many a kayak in my years and I keep coming back to my Quest. With all the pockets, cup holder, large front hatch, you can stow extra rods, extra paddles, soft sided coolers, tent...the list could go on and on. I use the rudder for bay fishing and drifting and paddling skill for everything else. The bottom looks like it's been used as cutting board for decades and it's been patched a few times but would only trade it for this 2014 model.

Review: I have had my Hobie Quest for two years and use it both on saltwater flats and rivers. It holds plenty of gear when camping and handles well on the flats. I do not have a rudder and have only needed one on a few occassions. In general it handles fine without the rudder.

Review: I have had my Quest for 3 years now and I would not trade it for anything else. I have had other brands that were heavier and color faded badly. My Quest still looks new, paddles easy, very stable in choppy bays and swift rivers. I love it so much I think I will bay a second Hobie Quest. Best buy for the money.

Review: I have a Hobie Quest, and this kayak is really fast....Its not the most stable boat, but it will cover some major ground....I'm really happy with it....
