Hobie Mirage Adventure Island
Hobie’s redesigned Mirage Adventure Island trimaran is the ideal craft for blasting off beaches on adventures. The rotomolded boat comes fishing ready with rod holders and gear bucket. If the wind fails, the mainsail roller furls around the carbon mast, and turbo fins push the boat along nicely. Once back to shore, detach the crossbars, leave the amas onshore and turn the trimaran into a touring kayak.
