Hobie Tandem Island

 

Looking for a super-fun multisport boat for two? Meet the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island. The Tandem Island is a super-fast, two-person kayak. But attach the aka crossbeams, the ama floats and the two-piece carbon fibre rig and sailing kit (all included), and you and your partner will be flying across the water, powered by a rollerfurling, boomless mainsail. Both cockpits have steering and sail-control lines, making the Tandem Island ideal for partners of all abilities. And the boat's generous storage space and carrying capacity means that your adventure potential is huge.

 

The Tandem Islands 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.

 

This latest specification sees the dramatic improvements to the Mirage Drive system itself with the inclusion of the MirageDrive 180. This allows full power reversing by simply pulling a lever – making it super easy to manoeuvre even the longest Hobie. Also featured is the state-of-the-art Vantage seating system including 4-way adjustability for more comfort in the cockpit or on the beach, Enjoy breathability, infinite flexibility and better visibility.

 

Due to the size & weight of the Tandem Island you might want to consider waterside storage or a small trailer for transportation.
