The Hobie Kona is a classic crossover paddle kayak.
In two-person configuration, it provides a stable ride and snappy, spin-in-a-second performance; when paddling alone, the boat’s molded center seat keeps the boat well trimmed and responsive.
Hobie’s original Pro Angler packs extreme fishing utility, with scads of (that’s six) horizontal rod lockers, enough tackle compartments to empty a store, and an elevated Vantage ST seat that’s as much easy chair as captain’s perch.
An absolute joy on the water, the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island is impressively approachable. Ride the wind: A roller-furling, vertically battened mainsail provides lift, a retractable centerboard prevents lateral slip, and the larger amas tuck parallel against the rotomolded polyethylene hull for docking. Multiple hatches, on deck stowage and Vantage CT Seating encourage multi-day adventures, and the MirageDrive with Glide Technology offers paddle-free locomotion when the wind scatters, making it easy to get home. The “AI” is also an exceptional
The Odyssey is Hobie’s ultimate two-person paddling kayak, one with plenty of get up and go.
While it carries a trim width relative to its sleek, 14-foot waterline, the Odyssey’s cleverly designed rotomolded polyethylene hull provides ample stability for casting, catching or getting a novice out on the water.
With innovative multiple seating options for one or two casters, the 17T is the king of Pro Anglers.Set up the fully adjustable Vantage XT Seating (extra tall) in the in-line tandem configuration (guide style), face- to-face (ideal for fishing with small fry), or as a single (so much space!); three steering handles cover all the possibilities.
The flowing, liquid lines of the Revolution 13 deliver an undeniable message. This is a quick, seaworthy and efficient design that, at 28.5-in. wide, hits the sweet spot for stability minus any slowdown.
