The newest addition to the Mirage product line-up is the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island, a 16' Trimaran "Sail/Yak" that incorporates the patented Hobie MirageDrive into a unique sailing machine unlike any other sailing craft on the water. Detach the crossbars, akas and amas and you have an adventure-touring kayak; reattach it all, step the rig and you have a nimble trimaran. A roller-furling, vertically battened mainsail provides lift, a daggerboard prevents lateral slip, and the amas tuck parallel against the rotomolded polyethylene hull for docking. Multiple hatches and on-deck stowage encourage multi-day adventures, and the MirageDrive offers paddle-free locomotion when kayaking or when the wind scatters, making it easy to get home. The Hobie Adventure Island also makes for a great fishing platform.

A boom-less, roller-furling sail rig; MirageDrive pedal system with standard fins
Two retractable amas that fold up against the side of the boat
Daggerboard; oversized "Twist and Stow" rudder
Mast and Sail Cover; and an Ama/Daggerboard bag
Includes Turbo Fins

Review: This is simply the best kayak i have ever owned. Its great for sailing, fishing or just laying out on the tramps while at anchor. A warning though, you may never want to go to work again and people will stop you and want to know about this kayak. Worth every penny. Your face will hurt from smiling.

Review: Awesome! If you have ever wanted to sail get this! Im 62 200# and this yak is very comfortable, stable, and a joy to use sailing or without the amas and sail. Using the hull alone with the mirage drive I can maintain 3 mph for hours and the tiller and rudder are very responsive. The most accurate thing I have read re: this boat is to get your teeth whitened because you will be smiling all day.

Review: A floating Swiss army knife. Have only had mine out twice, but I can tell already its going to be a great boat. In kayak fishing terms its fast with the pedals, and VERY fast with the sail. Once you get to where you want to fish, just pull in the amas, roll up the sail and your ready to go. The great thing is that half of the fun is getting there, between the thrill of sailing a trimaran or using the mirage drive, its hard to stay in one sport for long because you cant wait to blast off again. Stability is out of this world, even with the mast on and the amas in, you can still easily stand up and fish. High price, high performance.

Review: What a truly versitile vessel this is. I own three other kayaks but have stepped into a new dimesion with this one! I had a few initial issues with missing and incorrect parts. I did not receive the daggerboard, amma case, battens, or the correct sail (was shipped with a TANDEM sail). Kate in customer service acted quickly to correct the shipping errors. I can only assume that this was an anomoly. The Hobie Adventure Island is in a word awesome. The fit finish and quality of this sail/yak is unparalleled. It attracts a lot of attention from curious onlookers, and then accellerates rapidly away from them when you crack open the sail! This is my first Mirage Drive equipped kayak and that propulsion system is exceptional, but I just can't get past the sail power. Unbelievable. I can see a TANDEM in my future so that I can share the experience. TJO' Bakersfield, California
