The Hobie Quest 11 is the casting kayak that has everything you need to fully unwind, without unnecessary, distracting stuff. The Quest 11 has a clean, appendage-free under-body that glides on the water and its svelte hull weight and user-friendly handles make portaging a snap. While versatile enough to please any crowd, the Hobie Quest 11 has an angler-friendly pedigree that includes covered bow stowage, molded rod holders and a tankwell that will fit anything from a crate system to a Hobie Livewell.

Hobie Quest 11. I have owned a Quest 11 for 2 years now and I am totally happy with this kayak. Not only is it a great paddling kayak with it's tracking and stability, but it is also a fantastic fishing kayak as there is ample storage which is all accessible from sitting on the water. I only fish rivers, lakes, and creeks and for this type of fishing or paddling it is the perfect length for manuouvarability. The Quest 11 is also light enough to put in the back of a ute or even car top onto roof racks by one's self.If you buy one you will not regret it.
This is a magnificent kayak. Hobie is known for its mirage drive propulsion system. The paddle-only kayaks (like the Quest) are often overlooked. They shouldn't be. The Quest is a stable and fast fishing machine. I fish mainly small bodies of water and rivers/streams with mine, and it manages my 230 pounds perfectly. Paddles better than any kayak I've owned (8-10), and glides extremely well. Would be nice to add a rudder but why clutter up the simplicity this kayak is. I also have a 2014 Outback but so far, it has only been used once this fishing season. The weight of the Quest makes it easy to carry and transport. Highly recommend.
