Hobie Mirage Tandem Island
Looking for a super-fun multisport boat for two? Meet the Hobie Mirage® Tandem Island. In its most elemental form, the Tandem Island is a super-fast, two-person kayak. But attach the aka crossbeams, the ama floats and the two-piece carbon fiber rig and sailing kit (all included), and you and your partner will be flying across the water, powered by a roller-furling, 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.
