Product Description and Specs

The Hobie Mirage Adventure Island, a Trimaran "Sail/Yak" that incorporates the patented Hobie Mirage Drive into a unique sailing machine is 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. Hobie has upgraded the popular Mirage Drive to the Mirage Drive 180 for hands-free propulsion in both forward and reverse. The Vantage CT seats have three height options and the ability to recline the seat back. 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.

Love it! My advice is buy one! It's supposed to be a dryer ride, but it really isn't (your bottom is dryer) spray skirts are the way to go The new seat is great! You can use a cart, but it's heavy, going through sand it's tough. I trailer mine and leave the amas on. Using hobie cradles of course. Put the sail on at the launch and go have fun!. Before you buy the tramps, will you really use two?. You can buy one tramp and save some money. I only use the left tramp. While it is a little faster going upwind, it's not faster down wind. Hobie may have a spinnaker coming out next winter, if they do I'm going to buy one.

The 2015 Hobie Adventure island is a truly superb sailing vessel in my experience. Probably the most fun, stable, nibble, affordable, easy to rig & operate, open ocean capable, single seat trimaran on the planet ... No kidding.

Q: We just purchased the Hobie mirage adventure Island. On the end of the out riggers there is a threaded plug. I unscrewed it and air came out. Is that a problem?
A: That is not a problem, you would just need to re-inflate the outrigger.
