The Hobie Mirage Adventure Island Kayak is a 16' Trimaran "Sail/yak" that incorporates the new Hobie MirageDrive 180 into a unique sailing machine unlike any other sailing craft on the water. The Hobie Mirage Adventure Island has been redesigned for 2017 with a larger mast and more sail area, an updated seat, reshaped reverse-angle bows on the main hull, and new, longer amas for a beautiful, updated look and an even better sailing experience. The cockpit is the stable platform of the Hobie Mirage Adventure Kayak, offering full versatility as a pedaling kayak when conditions are not convenient for sailing. A boomless, roller-furling sail rig similar to the rig on the Hobie Bravo with plenty of sail area for excellent performance is completely manageable from the Adventure Island's cockpit with the pull of a line. The new Vantage CT seats have three height options and the ability to recline the seat back. Multiple hatches and on-deck stowage encourage multi-day adventures, and the MirageDrive 180 offers paddle-free locomotion when kayaking or when the wind scatters, making it easy to get home. Paddle traditionally or use the new MirageDrive 180° system to fly in the water. Weighing in at under eight pounds, the MirageDrive 180 produces full power in both directions and offers unprecedented maneuverability. The user can pull one of two shift cables to pivot the fins 180 degrees, almost instantly from forward to reverse and back again.The Adventure Island is loaded with additional standard features such as a kick-up Centerboard; oversized "Kick-up Island" rudder; Mast and Sail Cover; and an Ama/Daggerboard Bag. The Hobie Mirage Adventure Island Kayak boasts the versatility to be sailed, pedaled, or paddled, to create a true water adventure craft! It'a a kayak. It's a sailboat. It's a trimaran. It's a fishing boat. No, wait, it's all of these things!
