Hobie Passport 12.0


The Hobie Revolution and Outback range have dominated the pedal drive sector for many years and kayakers like the Cornish Kayak Angler continue to push the boundaries of what is possible it’s to catch from a personal watercraft! However these kayaks are not cheap and that’s hardly surprising when the feature set is looked at. Not all of us need this or wish to spend quite so much and that’s why Hobie has brought out the Passport.

Just like its smaller sibling, the Hobie Passport 12.0 has been built from the ground up to perform like a Hobie. It has a wide stable easily driven thermoformed plastic hull which has been specially designed to take the Mirage Drive GT drive in an injection moulded mount. This drive system features GlideTechnology (GT) with roller bearings on pivot points for longevity and kick up fins which allow you to stop worrying about what is under the surface (except of course the fish!). Steering is taking care of by a manually deployed kick up rudder with handle by the seat.

A Hobie wouldn’t be a Hobie without a comfortable seat and the Passport has a deckchair style reclining chair which can of course be removed and used on the beach when its time to relax. There is also the signature Twist ‘n’ Seal hatch for below deck storage and two large bungee cords on deck for crates and dry bags.

Fisherman are still ably catered for with two flush mount rod holders in the stern, two gear tracks either side of the seat, plus bungee cords for tackle boxes and a central vertical mount in the bow which can take another rod holder or even a sail kit. There is a full complement of grab handles and a paddle holder (complete with paddle).

The Passport 12.0 is well named as your entry document to the world of pedal drive kayaks and its stamped ‘Hobie’!
