Take on new challenges with the 18' 6" Hobie Mirage Tandem Island, a Trimaran Sail/Yak that brings the Hobie Mirage Drive to your sailing experience. You'll love the boom-less, roller-furling sail which makes it easy to manage the surface sail. The included retractable amas easily fold alongside the boat for portability. Pedal with the Mirage Drive, control rudders, sails, and other critical components with ease, and expand the platform to a tandem (2-seater) if your friends or family want to come along. The Vantage CT seats are extremely comfortable and have a fully adjustable seat-back, bottom, height and lumbar support to make your ride even more comfortable. The kayak comes Lowrance ready with a transducer mounting plate for your fish finder. The Hobie Tandem Island comes with additional standard features such as a deployable centerboard, over-sized Twist and Stow rudder, Turbo Fins on both Mirage Drives, mast and sail cover, and aka carrying bag.
This new 2017 model features the new MD-180 forward/reverse drive, allowing you to switch between pedalling the kayak forwards and in reverse.
