Hobie Sailboats

Hobie Sailboats are far and away the best adventure on the water. For over 60 years Hobie has been the name synonomous with fun and Tiki Water Sports is the largest dealer in the Florida Keys! Hobie offers a wide variety of catamarans to suit the need of any sailor!


Hobie Wave

The Hobie Wave is an easy- to-sail, easy-to-rig speedster that will have you smiling. Fun for the family and exciting for the juniors while forgiving enough for the newly initiated, the Hobie Wave is the ideal must-go-sailing-now catamaran. Its symmetrically shaped hulls and keel design provide lift while eliminating the need for daggerboards, and its rotomolded polyethylene construction is nearly indestructible. A large, fully-battened, boomless mainsail is powerful in the light stuff, but is designed to reduce power in an unexpected gust. The Hobie Wave is ideal for sailing solo or with a friend, while the Wave Club edition can also be used for schools, organizations or resorts.

Hobie Mirage Adventure Island

The Adventure Island blends timeless design with Hobie innovation. Kayaks and trimarans provide truly outstanding ways of enjoying the water?the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island combines these joys in one easy-to-use package. 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. 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. It also makes for a great fishing platform.


Hobie Mirage Tandem Island

Grab a partner and enjoy the ride on a Tandem Island. The puff hits and the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island?s leeward ama chisels into the water, its efficient, square-topped mainsail immediately translating increased wind speed into extra boat speed. The Tandem Island?s two-piece carbon-fiber rig minimizes weight aloft?thus stiffening the ride?and both cockpits are fitted with steerage and sail-handling controls, allowing sailors of all abilities to share the experience. Best yet, the crossbars, amas, akas and rig are easily stripped, converting the Tandem Island?s rotomolded polyethylene hull into a highly efficient, pedal-or paddle-powered touring kayak with enough hatches and on-deck stowage for multi-day escapes.
