Hobie Kayaks Outfitter Tandem
The Hobie Kayaks Outfitter is a tandem sit on top featuring the Hobie mirage drive system for both passengers. The Outfitter boasts a wide and stable hull making it great for touring and fishing.
Smooth, stable and built for two, the Outfitter is designed around a philosophy of utility, performance and ease-of-use. Onboard, little features such as molded utility trays, built-in drink holders, dual helm controls, or conveniently positioned rod holders make the Outfitter a pleasure to use, regardless of the destination.
Whether it's a solo after-work session or a long weekend of float casting with a friend, the Outfitter boasts a wide, stable hull platform, dual MirageDrives and ample stowage space to keep you well provisioned and properly organized.
This Kayak has only been used twice, the Compass Duo is the closest equivalent and costs £3275.
The red picture shows a Hobie Tandem Island which today will cost
£7,550 without trailer, to give you an idea of what has been designed for the Outfitter.
You can see from the yellow pictures of the Outfitter that two outriggers have been professionally constructed with twin folding rudders working in tandem, there is a mast and sails and a purpose made road trailer.
The Kayak has been dry stored held in a purpose made cradle to avoid any distortion and is currently in Saltash, Cornwall.
Only reason for sale is I have two sailing boats and a dinghy to restore so just don't have the time to use the Hobie as well, I use a Feelfree canoe when I have the time for a quick paddle.
One advantage of converting the Outfitter to sail is that it is a lot shorter and more convenient than the Oasis and Adventure models, it also has the greatest beam at 34 inches.
