Hobie Tandem Island


SKU: Hobie Tandem Island Categories: ,


Hop aboard with a friend. With dual MirageDrive 180s providing forward and reverse pedal power, maneuvering is a snap even when the zephyrs subside. New for 2020 are our patented Kick-Up Fins that automatically “kick-up” on contact with an underwater obstacle. 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 centerboard deployment; and dual rudder control. This is Hobie’s ultimate fish hunter, capable of marlin teasing trolling speeds.
