Hobie RENTAL Fleet:
Mirage Compass *
NEW in 2018!
This Kayak is our primary rental kayak for Hobie Rentals. Available for Hourly, Daily and Weekly rates, if you’re looking for a kayak for the week, this is the kayak for you! Rentals include standard kayak accessories that normally come with the kayak (not a fish finder).
Simplicity defined, its time-tested MirageDrive pedal system with Glide Technology moves you easily through the water. Outfitted with a breathable mesh seat, the Compass offers maximum stability and an oversized cockpit and flat deck for standing. A sharp turning radius makes this fishing kayak nimble in tight quarters, yet able to speed over open water in stealthy fashion. Kayak fishing features include molded-in rod holders, H-Track accessory mounts and a transducer cavity ready for you to install a Lowrance® fishfinder.
* We’ll delivery/pick up this kayak from your rental property if you book a weekly rental.

SALES & DEMOS:
Hobie Mirage Outback 12
Available for week-long delivery. Features include theMirageDrive® pedal system, clip-in back rest, 4 built in rod holders, rudder, anchor and Hobie kayak cart. The legendary design that propelled the MirageDrive to fishing supremacy is better than ever. It’s still every inch an Outback, with a time-tested hull that’s an ideal blend of confident stability and smooth maneuverability. Yet quicker, thanks to efficient Glide Technology with Bluefins. The deck is freshly redesigned around the marvelous Vantage CT seat to maximize stand-up space and storage. Cruise, camp, or catch. The Outback is packed full of fishing features, including the Lowrance Ready System that makes sonar installation a cinch.
• Hobie Mirage Sport
The Sport is sized just right for quick escapes, nine easy feet of kick-back kayak with Hobie MirageDrive motivation. Hop on and go. Stay awhile; the cushy Vantage CT will float away your cares. The Sport is compact, but doesn’t skimp on comfort or storage. Back friendly; you shouldn’t break a sweat getting to or from the water. Focus on fun; the durable polyethylene is carefree and tough. The Sport has a big heart that equally loves pleasure cruising and teasing bass in the sticks.
• Hobie Mirage Revolution 11
The sleek “Revo 11” is lightning fast off the line, a MirageDrive powered pocket rocket that’ll turn in its own length. Performance in a tidy 11-ft. package, easy to transport and store. The eye-catching Revolution 11 comes with all the essentials available on larger models, at sig- nificantly reduced weight: molded-in rod holders, multiple hatches and a spacious storage well. There isn’t a single wasted inch on this compact fish-capable cruiser.
• Hobie Mirage Revolution 13
The flowing, liquid lines of the Revolution 13 deliver an undeniable message. This is a quick, seaworthy and efficient design that, at 28.5-in. wide, hits the sweet spot for stability minus any slowdown. Catchy too, with dual rod holders and generous tackle storage. If you crave a change of pace from hands-free MirageDrive glide and pick up the paddle, the “Revo 13” still makes tracks. Whether fishing or exploring, the Revolution 13 loves a twisty, challenging course. The lightweight, rotomolded hull sings when under optional Sail kit power.
• Adventure Island
An absolute joy on the water, the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island is impressively approachable. Ride the wind: A roller-furling, vertically battened mainsail provides lift, a retractable centerboard prevents lateral slip, and the larger amas tuck parallel against the rotomolded polyethylene hull for docking. Multiple hatches, on deck stowage and Vantage CT Seating encourage multi-day adventures, and the MirageDrive with Glide Technology offers paddle-free locomotion when the wind scatters, making it easy to get home. The “AI” is also an exceptional bluewater-capable fishing platform. Equip the accessory trampoline kit for extra space and walk-around capability.
• Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 12
Dominate the water, fresh or salt. The Pro Angler 12 deploys all the big-boat fishing features of the ‘PA’ series on a 12-ft. long platform that fits neatly in the back of most any pickup truck. Keep a half-dozen rods rigged and ready in the four standard horizontal and two molded-in rod holders. Confidently stand and fire cast after cast. The elevated Vantage ST seat makes it easy to move around the boat. Now includes a retractable skeg for improved course-keeping, as well as innovative H-Rail for superior flexibility in accessory rigging.
• Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 14
Hobie’s original Pro Angler packs extreme fishing utility, with scads of (that’s six) horizontal rod lockers, enough tackle compartments to empty a store, and an elevated Vantage ST seat that’s as much easy chair as captain’s perch. There’s a non-skid deck for standing—a huge advantage for sight fishing—and veritable acres of H-Rail for mounting rod holders and electronics. All this on a spacious 14-foot platform, with no need for a gas tank. Hobie’s unique MirageDrive with Glide Technology provides efficient, quiet propulsion.
A kayak with one of Hobie’s easy and elegant MirageDrives is quick. Adding a second really pours on the speed. Bring along a friend, your significant other, or a child—dual helm control means either of you can steer this wide, stable hull. Or go solo. The Outfitter is the more compact of Hobie’s pair of rotomolded polyethylene tandems, a little easier to store than its larger sibling. Room for two doesn’t mean sacrificing storage: utility trays, a trio of Twist and Seal hatches, and a large rear storage area provide plenty of room.
The Oasis is stretched-out and spacious, the more performance-oriented of Hobie’s pair of tandems powered by the elegant, easy-to-use MirageDrive. So speedy yet boasting a robust carrying capacity suitable for a weekend camping trip or fishing with enough gear to stock a tackle shop—there are four convenient hatches and a generous on-deck storage area, as well as molded-in rod holders. The Oasis gets the job done in style and comfort.
• Tandem Island
Sailing has never seemed so simple. When the wind blows, the Tandem Island flies across the water, powered by an expansive, easily tended mainsail. Hop aboard with a friend. With dual MirageDrives providing pedal power, maneuvering is a snap even when the zephyrs subside. 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.
• Pro Angler 17T
With innovative multiple seating options for one or two casters, the 17T is the king of Pro Anglers. Set up the fully adjustable Vantage XT Seating (extra tall) in the in-line tandem configuration (guide style), face- to-face (ideal for fishing with small fry), or as a single (so much space!); three steering handles cover all the possibilities. Fishing rod storage both front and rear holds an astounding dozen rods—bring the entire quiver. Customize accessory placement on more than 20 feet of H-Rail system. Both users can stand and fish in comfort and each cockpit is fitted with a large rectangular hatch with pivoting tackle management system; there’s even additional under-seat storage. An aft battery platform stands ready to house a 12v trolling motor battery, a cooler or crate to carry even more gear.
Hourly and Daily rentals are available for pick up only.
Delivery for the Hobie Compass model is available for weekly rental rate.
