How much enjoyment will this Hobie Tandem Island provide?
Impressing the water sports enthusiast / Sports angler / Sailor and not only can it be used solo, but it's also a tandem twin rig!
The Golden Papaya colour surely stands out as a safe colour and we love the clever design that makes sailing so simple. A trailer is included to allow you to tow the rig to your favourite launching beach / ramp and explore the more remote waterways.
If the wind drops out, start up the Honda 2.2Hp four stroke to get out or back without relying solely on pedal or sail power.
However, when the wind does blow, the Tandem Island flies across the water, powered by an expansive, easily tended mainsail.
For the stealth angler, remove the sail and slowly and quietly make your way across the top of the water way via the patented pedal power "Mirage Drive's" (foot pedal devices) providing forward and reverse pedal power, manoeuvring is a snap even when the wind increases.
Hobie never stops designing for both practicality and safety and even the fins on these devices kick back if you come in contact with an underwater obstruction.
The central hull is pure high-end Hobie with all the expected features: multiple Twist and Seal hatches, a large bow hatch for below-decks storage, lever-operated rudder and dual rudder control.
This is Hobie's ultimate fish hunter, capable of fishing the flats or being out in the open bay chasing the pelagics (Skipper to ensure safety obligations).
Accessories and features include:
Honda 2.2 Hp four stroke outboard
Ausmarine AL4.2M13 trailer
Beach launch dolly takes the effort out of getting your boat down to water's edge.
