Hobie Mirage Tandem Island – $10,690
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.

Hop aboard with a friend. With dual MirageDrive 180s providing forward and reverse pedal power, maneuvering is a snap even when the zephyrs subside. Our patented Kick-Up Fins automatically “kick-up” on contact with an underwater obstacle and automatically adjust back into place once clear. The central hull is pure high-end Hobie with all the expected features: multiple Twist and Seal hatches, a large bow hatch for below-decks storage, lever-operated rudder and centerboard deployment and dual rudder control. This is Hobie’s ultimate fish hunter, capable of marlin teasing trolling speeds.
KICK-UP FIN TECHNOLOGY
The MirageDrive continues to deliver on Hobie’s legacy for reliable performance, confidence-inspiring power and all-day efficiency. With Kick-Up Fins, explore without a care. Kelp and logs? No problem. These fins automatically kick-up on impact and adjust back when you resume pedaling.
Adjustability meets comfort
The Vantage seating system provides the comfort needed for long stretches out on the water. The seat-back, bottom, height, and lumbar-support are all easily adjustable. State-of-the-art design with 4-way adjustability for more comfort in the cockpit or on the beach. Enjoy breathability, infinite flexibility and better visibility.
