Hobie T2

The T2 is a rotomolded beach cat designed to sail with the family, friends or at the club level. With plenty of stability, it is the benchmark boat for school sailing. For a more lively performance, sailors can use the standard double trapeze with some peace of mind; a masthead float is also standard equipment.
