2017 Hobie Mirage Outback

The legendary design that propelled the MirageDrive to fishing supremacy is better than ever.

It’s still every inch an Outback, with a time-tested hull that’s an ideal blend of confident stability and smooth maneuverability. Yet quicker, thanks to efficient Glide Technology with Bluefins. The deck is freshly redesigned around the marvelous Vantage CT seat to maximize stand-up space and storage. Cruise, camp, or catch. The Outback is packed full of fishing features, including the Lowrance Ready System that makes sonar installation a cinch.

2017 Hobie Mirage i14T

The Hobie i14T is the ultimate two-person, inflatable touring kayak.

Two MirageDrives simplify locomotion, and an optional Sail kit enables you to enjoy everything from a sunrise paddle to an all-day, multi-sport adventure. The i14T’s wheeled storage bag and its pump make hauling, storing and inflating the boat a snap.

2016 Hobie Mirage i12s

All the cruising capability and space of a full-sized kayak, yet infinitely portable.

The 12-ft. long Mirage i12s inflatable PVC-vinyl hull offers speed without sacrificing stability, above- deck Bungee-secured storage area provide generous hauling capacity—perfect for weekend escapes or provisioning trips ashore from the family cruiser. The i12s’ MirageDrive delivers all-day comfort and performance.

2017 Hobie Mirage i9s

Hobie’s i9S was specifically designed for people shy on spare acreage but who dream of spending their time kayaking, fishing or sailing (via the optional Sail kit).

The compact i9S offers on-the-water performance that rivals rigid boats, and its rugged, PVC-vinyl construction and reinforced underside eliminate fears of rocky beaches.
