2016 Hobie Mirage Tandem Island The puff of wind hits and the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island’s leeward ama chisels into the water, its efficient, square-topped mainsail immediately translating increased wind speed into extra boat speed.

Best yet, the Tandem Island is equipped with enough hatches and on-deck stowage for multi-day escapes. This is Hobie’s ultimate blue water hunter, capable of marlin-teasing trolling speeds.

The Buyer should instruct his agents, or his surveyors to investigate such details as the Buyer desires validated. This sailboat is offered subject to prior sale, price change, or withdrawal without notice. Thanks for your interest in Abby Gale. I've been one of the crew and a rigger for the owner since he purchased her in 2008. He is only her second owner and we have enjoyed many delightful daysails together on the Bay ... first out of Grand Marina in Alameda and now based in Point Richmond. She is quick with just her working sails and a heck of a lot of fun, often with just two or three of us on board. Entertaining guests has often been a big priority and with her twin steering stations, outstanding cockpit table, swivel mounted GPS chartplotter and custom cockpit grabrails, it is not only more comfortable for typical non-sailing oriented folks ... but also safer for moving about and navigating using her Raymarine radar/GPS split screen color display. If you are familiar with the standard Sun Odyssey Deck Salon, she is well-equipped to handle typical windy San Francisco Bay weather. Here a some of the features/benefits of some of the gear that has been added including those I have installed myself; Electric cabin top winch - We replaced the existing port side standard Harken with a 2 speed Harken electric winch. This allows for much easier mainsail deployment, reefing and control by one person. It does take some practice and knowledge of how the in-mast furling system is designed to work. It has been trouble free for us so long as we keep a light tension on the proper furling lines and outhaul whenever using them. (The opposing forces of the outhaul against the two furling lines and their endless loop splices are what keep the mainsail tightly rolled up inside the mast at all times) The electric winch is most helpful in this regard. What used to be a very tiring procedure can now be accomplished in a tenth of the time and with very little physical effort required. Note that we also added an additional matched house battery to augment the total capacity of the battery banks so that use of the electric winch on a regular basis on a typical daysail will never be a concern. Once we discovered some years ago that an electric cabin top winch is apparently available as a factory installed option, researching this further, I was able to order a factory designed and constructed custom fiberglass underdeck cover to hide the electric motor to match. BTW, this electric two speed winching capability also extends to control of a few of the other starboard side lines on an as needed basis by passing them once around the starboard side cabin top winch ... and thence across the companionway to the electric winch on the port side. Thus, there are several dedicated port side sheet stoppers ... which are now enabled with "push button" two speed ease of use as follows; Mainsail outhaul Mainsail in-mast furl IN Mainsail in-mast furl OUT Mainsheet Boom Vang Port side traveler control line Foresail furling control line Note that lines from the starboard cabin top sheet stoppers include; Foreguy Pole Topping Lift Pole car uphaul Pole car downhaul Starboard side traveler control line The weight of the inboard end of the whisker pole is largely supported by a shock cord running from the pole car up to a small cheek block at the top of the spinnaker pole track and then back down to the base of the mast. The purpose of this is to make the foredeck job easier when attaching the pole to the clew of the jib or when jibing the pole. We chose a large diameter telescoping pole to allow for the future use of a gennaker. Though we have yet to purchase the gennaker itself, we originally felt it would add a lot of downwind speed when sailing "wing-and-wing" down the Oakland Estuary after a long daysail. However, we now know that the whisker pole does indeed add a lot of speed simply when used with either jib poled out. Abby Gale is also outfitted with a beautifully comfortable teak cockpit and easily accessible transom swim steps with swim ladder and shower. The swivel mounted GPS/chart plotter is a joy to use from either the port or starboard helm seat. We sited the original Raymarine GPS mounting location instead with a small storage locker for binoculars, cameras, etc. We also mounted two separate night lights for the cockpit table (one white and one red) which shine forward (away from the helm stations) from the GPS mounting pod. Abby Gale has been well maintained and it shows. I would not hesitate to sail her anywhere. She will provide her new owners with many miles of pure sailing enjoyment for years to come. As a yacht skipper and rigger for nearly 40 years on San Francisco Bay, I currently find myself living in San Antonio Texas. I'm expanding my horizons to include sailing my new Hobie Tandem Island Mirage kayak all over the place! Loving sailing a Jeanneau 39 based in Point Richmond but I've also owned or been partners in a MacGregor 65 ocean racer, a couple of trailerable daysailers and a couple of windsurfers. Not mentioned here nor often shown in ads for this Jeanneau 39DS Sun Odyssey model is the fact that it has a large "garage" for extra storage (only accessible through the head compartment). There is also a large oval window in the hull on the outboard side of the "garage" which provides a significant amount of light for ease of use. Located low in the hull on the port side under the cockpit, I suspect this full storage area is even long enough to add about a 6 foot long spare berth cushion for a young person or extra crew member if needed. It's awkward at best but it can certainly hold many extra sails or even a full complement of tools for a makeshift workshop. Abby Gale is available for viewing by appointment. Feel free to ask any questions here first. We will do our best to answer them. More photos are available at the magazine known as Latitude 38

Hobie Tandem Island

From: $ 12,290.00

Hobie Logo

Pedal, Paddle & Sail – the Hobie Tandem Island (TI) can do it all. The TI is the most capable craft Hobie make and is an incredible boat for couples, families and friends. Use it as a kayak (hull only), outrigger (single ama) or full sailing trimaran!

Hobie Tandem Island Trimaran Sailing Kayak

Hobie Tandem Island

The Hobie Tandem Island Mirage trimaran sailing kayak is the two-seater big brother to the Adventure Island (AI), which was designed and built by Hobie due to popular demand. The ‘TI’ as it is otherwise known is bigger, faster, more stable and offers greater carrying capacity and versatility. The TI is a tandem trimaran sailing vessel that is easily the most capable Hobie Miragedrive boat, partly because it can also be used as a kayak and Polynesian-style outrigger as well as a sailing trimaran. The ability to configure the TI to suit the conditions on the day makes it a highly capable craft that can do more in a greater variety of conditions.

Whether you’re into maximizing your kayak fishing adventures or simply just love to sail (but cannot afford, store, transport or bother with a larger Hobie catamaran ) the Tandem Island commands your attention

Used as a kayak the Hobie Tandem Island is the fastest tandem model in Hobie’s fleet, as well as being the most stable. As an outrigger it is even more stable and doesn’t suffer too much from a loss of speed. When there is little or no wind the TI can be used to great effect in either configuration, ideal for touring, sight-seeing, kayak fishing and camping trips. When the wind is blowing, however, the TI absolutely shines in it’s default state as a trimaran. Light winds will move the TI along at a steady pace and stronger winds will push it along with eyebrow raising speeds, the respective experience ranging from serenely relaxing to downright thrilling.

Hobie Mirage: Paddle, Pedal, Power, or Sail

Amas, akas, and a torqeedo make multi-tasking on this hobie multihull fun..

trimaran hobie tandem island mirage

Photos by Ralph Naranjo

The Hobie Mirage Tandem Island, a mouthful we’ll refer to as the HMTI, is the latest incarnation of Hobie’s capable and creative engineering team. This triple-play trimaran can be paddled, pedaled, and sailed using dozens of Hobie’s in-house designed parts. A specialized Torqeedo electric outboard ( www.torqeedo.com ), which can be dropped into a drive slot, adds a forth dimension to this multi-tasking multihull. The Torqeedo comes complete with a remote battery and throttle control, and whether it’s used for mini-motorsailing, or for light tackle fishing by the angler who prefers to troll quietly and sail home—Hobie has hit the mark with this latest innovation.

As sailors skeptical of boats that try to offer too much of a good thing, we were a little concerned about the HMTI’s mega multitasking. We hoped it would prove to be a sequel to the woodworker’s Shopsmith, an elegant power tool that can be morphed from a table saw into seven different power tools.

Hobie Mirage: Paddle, Pedal, Power, or Sail

At the heart of Hobie’s new sailing design is a ruggedly built, roto-molded, two-seat, sit-on-top kayak, a kayak concept that Hobie and many others have been building for a decade or so. Added to that foundation are two well-proportioned amas set on articulating crossmembers (akas), creating a very stable multihull platform. This mono-to-multihull transformation solves the righting moment requirement linked to sail carrying. A boomless roller-furling sail on a two-piece carbon-fiber spar that can be stepped as easily as a beach umbrella can be planted in the sand completes the sailing part of the package. The heel of the mast simply clicks into a deck-mounted receiver.

A double-ended mainsheet allows trimming at either cockpit location. The old who’s-the-sheet-hog rule prevails, and as with any double-ended sheeting arrangement, lines occasionally need to be reshuffled between the crew.

Steering is actuated via small levers situated on the sidedeck, to port of each seat well. These mini tillers work the opposite of a conventional tiller, but by reminding yourself to treat the lever like a wheel, the steering quickly becomes second nature.

Testers found the seats to be both comfortable and effectively located with all controls within easy reach. The centerboard has a simple lever-operated up-and-down control that retracts the foil completely for easy beaching.

Getting underway from a dock entails setting up the outboard ama ahead of time, and then, after a push away from the dock and a couple of either pedal cycles or paddle strokes, simply swinging the dockside ama into its place. Once both of the ama’s locking struts have been engaged, a tug of the sheet unfurls the sail and the usual trim-and-steer routine takes hold.

Hobie Mirage: Paddle, Pedal, Power, or Sail

In 10 knots of breeze, the boat’s a blast to sail. Being so close to the water makes even modest boat speed exhilarating. The HMTI offers middle-of-the-fleet windward performance plus great reaching ability. It would be a stretch to call the HMTI an efficient light-air sailboat. However, among the fringe benefits of this multipurpose multihull are the mix-and-match propulsion modes. Sailors who want to work the quads a little while sailing can bolster light-air performance by pedaling the boat and increasing the airflow over the sail, creating a significant boost in boat speed. If you’re less inclined toward human propulsion, set the boat up with the Torqeedo outboard option, and the silent electric drive redefines the concept of motorsailing.

In truth, regardless of whether the amas are folded in, the HMTI is not a whole lot of fun to paddle when it’s decked out in sailing trimaran configuration. The increase in windage and wetted surface are just too much. But on days when kayaking is the goal, leave the mast, amas, and akas at home, and you’ll have a fun double kayak to paddle—a great way to explore an estuary or narrow river. Take along the Torqeedo if you want a break or if you want the ability to extend your exploration range. This is a versatile boat that seems to have a wide range of boating appeal, and it’s a prime example of electrical propulsion put to good use.

Hobie Mirage Island Tandem Kayak Review

Hobie mirage island tandem kayak.

This remarkable kayak is the flagship of Hobie’s Mirage Drive series and features two unique Hobie technologies. First is the revolutionary MirageDrive pedal drive system that allows easy, efficient hands-free kayaking. In this configuration, the Hobie Mirage Island Tandem  is a super-fast two person kayak with loads of cargo space. However, if you fit the boat with the included 90 sq/ft sail and 18 ft. carbon-fiber mast along with the retracting, removable aka crossbeams and ama floats, it transforms into a swift, stable wind-loving trimaran.

Hobie Mirage Island Tandem Kayak Features:

  • The Hobie kayaks are famous for their Mirage Drive pedal system. This system consists of a pair of pedals that drive two rubber fins side to side to propel the kayak forward.
  • The Mirage System is silent while pedalling and creates no splash, it also allows you to effortlessly pedal the kayak with your feet while keeping your hands free, perfect for fishing and photography.
  • New state-of-the-art design, with 4-way adjustablity for more comfort in the cockpit or on the beach, Enjoy breathability, infinite flexibility and better visibility.
  • All the kayaks in the Hobie range can take a sail to power your kayak. The optional Mirage Sail Kit attaches to the sail mount on the kayak. The sail maintains speed with or without peddling.
  • Hobie’s come with a Rudder that is easily controllable with a lever to steer as well as two pull handles on either side of the kayak: a “Down” handle to deploy the rudder and an “Up” handle to lift the rudder out of the water when in shallow water and for landing.
  • Twist and seal hatches are simple to use and are hinged so you will never have to worry about losing the cover. The hatches allow you to store equipment below deck.
  • Hobie’s come complete with a two piece paddle that can be used for additional maneuverability or for when you are not peddling. When not in use the paddle can be stored in the handy hull paddle holder.
  • Keep the items you need close and handy like sun cream, snack bar or waterproof camera.
  • Molded in to the hull, these rod holders are ideally placed for rods. The holders are also handy for carrying a fishing net or safety flag.
  • Large storage area for all the gear you want to take out with you. Bungee tie downs keep it all secure.
  • Adds additional stability to your Hobie kayak. Great to use when sailing, fishing, standing when sight-fishing and shooting photos.
  • Removable akas with a carry bag for storage.

Pros and cons

  • Various color options, which include golden papaya, ivory dune, and red hibiscus.
  • Can be used as a standard kayak.
  • Spacious storage options.
  • Easy to operate.
  • Boat is large and heavy.

This multi-function kayak is a brilliant Hobie invention that will change the way you sail. It’s durable, versatile, reliable and easy to handle, allowing you to explore the blue waters in a fresh and previously impossible way. So forget the weight of the kayak and the large price tag, it certainly provides value for the money. So no more wasting time deciding on whether it fits in your budget; this sailing kayak will pay you back handsomely over the next ten years.

Hobie Mirage Adventure Island Tandem Trimaran Review

by Small Tri Guy | Jan 4, 2011 | Production/Commercial Small Trimarans , Small Tri Info - All | 0 comments

What does a kayaker think of Hobie’s new tandem “Adventure Island Trimaran”? The following is excerpted from a review written by Craig McSween, who is a Level 2 Sea Kayak Instructor at AUSTRALIAN CANOEING.

“The Hobie Mirage Tandem Island is the double version of the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island. Plenty of room for the skipper and crew, with total control of the roller furling sail and the large Twist & Stow rudder from either high back padded seat. Inspired by Polynesian multihulls this 18′ 6” trimaran “sail-yak” includes state of the art features and comfort, plus two patented MirageDrives with Turbo Fins. – Hobie Australasia

First Glance

From those who had the pleasure of viewing, or even trying, a single Hobie Adventure Island when they arrived on the scene a few years ago we heard the constant calling “So when are Hobie going to come out with a tandem one of these?” We’ll it’s taken a few years…….but a few months ago the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island arrived on our shores. … cont …”

What on earth is a kayatamaran?

trimaran hobie tandem island mirage

Do you enjoy spending time on the water and want a unique and thrilling way to experience the Great Lakes? Adventure paddler and outdoor enthusiast,  Diana Lee , will introduce you to her new water toy that harnesses the wind but can also be powered by paddling and pedalling. 

As an avid stand-up paddleboarder, I love flat water days.

As a lake surfer, I love windy, wavy days.

As a cycling enthusiast, I love day trips spent riding in nature or exploring nearby cities.

There are days where I am torn choosing between activities, but I recently found a way that combines elements from some of my favourite summer sports.

What is a kayatamaran? 

Meet the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island .

While I've heard people call it a trimaran, I call it a "kayatamaran,” a term I made up but here’s why—the central part is a kayak. Two amas or outriggers attach to it, making it look like a catamaran. And like a catamaran, it’s got a sail, but it’s got the added innovation of pedal drives for each passenger (think: pedal boats but way more sophisticated). I have the tandem option, but there is a solo model called Adventure Island .

The outriggers and mast are collapsible, making it easy for transportation, storage or journeys where there’s a height limit (e.g. a bridge over the water). The pedal drives can be removed for transport or while navigating shallow waters.

trimaran hobie tandem island mirage

Why Though?

There are so many reasons to try out this fun watercraft!

It's a great option for people new to sailing. As someone with no extensive sailing experience, I love that I can enjoy the ride while learning how to harness the wind in this durable and forgiving ‘sailboat with training wheels,’ as perfectly noted by Rob Lytle, a certified sailing instructor and manager from Fogh Marine , one of the few retailers in Ontario for the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island . The outriggers help improve stability, so it is less likely to capsize if you make any mistakes. If the wind changes or dies off, the boat can still be powered by the pedals or paddling. Or you can keep pedalling even when the sail is open, and the boat will fly! Weee! In the Tandem Island, both sailors seated in front and back can actively manage the sail and rudder. Even experienced sailors can enjoy a comfortable, seated sailing experience.

For families looking to get out on the water together – The two seats are great, but we purchased ‘trampolines’ (the black fabric platforms that stretch between the outrigger arms) so that we can bring along our dogs! The trampolines can also carry items like a dry bag you or anything you don’t mind getting wet. There are additional hatches along the kayak body to store gear.

For the water adventurer—imagine travelling longer distances for day trips or even island-hopping for overnight adventures!

If you enjoy kayaking, fishing, stand-up paddleboarding (yes, I aim to bring my SUP aboard one day), or any other water sports, a trimaran/kayatamaran is another fun way to get out on the water without having to choose between your favourite activities. 

trimaran hobie tandem island mirage

Before Paddling in Ontario…

Before venturing out, remember to check the weather and water conditions. Always wear a lifejacket and let someone know your paddling plans. Review Transport Canada’s rules and required gear for operating watercraft safely and check the local municipality for the most up-to-date info on safety guidelines. Always travel responsibly.

Where To Go on your kayatamaran

If you’re wondering where to go with a kayatamaran, here are some ideas:

Toronto (Lake Toronto) Launch from Cherry Beach , then head over to Tommy Thompson Park and check out the cormorants or head out of Outer Harbour towards the Toronto Islands. If you’re going into the harbour through the Eastern Gap, watch for boat traffic.

Scarborough Bluffs (Lake Ontario) Launch directly from Bluffers Park (boat ramp or beach launch) or from Kew-Balmy Beach for a longer trip to see the towering white cliffs formed by the natural process of wind and water erosion from Lake Ontario 12,000 years ago!  

trimaran hobie tandem island mirage

Lake Simcoe Launch from Sibbald Point Provincial Park (boat ramp or beach launch), visit Georgina Island nearby.

Georgian Bay Launch from Killbear Provincial Park (boat ramp or beach launch) and explore nearby islands (thanks for this tip, Rob!)

Lake Nipissing, North Bay Launch from Marathon Beach (boat ramp or beach launch) and explore the Manitou Islands Provincial Park , accessible only by boat.  

Lake Temiskaming/Timiskaming Launch from New Liskeard Beach (beach launch) or one of the many marinas and visit Devil’s Rock .

While there’s no shortage of lakes with interesting shorelines or islands to explore in Ontario, Rob from Fogh Marine said it best: “go wherever your competence takes you.”

While sailing in Toronto harbour means getting postcard-worthy views of the city’s skyline, there can be lots of boat traffic, including ferries and water taxis. Be sure to stay outside of the Toronto Island airport’s buoys and be mindful when entering the harbour through the Eastern or Western gap.

If you’re a beginner sailor, stay close to shore and stick to protected areas. If you have more experience, Ontario is the best choose-your-own-water-adventure playground, especially if you’re not afraid of getting a little wet!

trimaran hobie tandem island mirage

Where To Buy or Try a hobie Mirage trimaran in ontario

In Ontario, here are some Hobie retailers:  

Fogh Marine (Toronto) – Ask about their Hobie demo days! Also, ask for Rob, who is an expert resource on anything Hobie Mirage Tandem Island-related!   

Swift Canoe Kayak (Gravenhurst location)

Trailhead Paddle Shack (Ottawa)

While I’ve only met a few people in Ontario familiar with the Adventure and Tandem Islands, there is a more active community in the US. There are dedicated meetups, social paddles, and even races! For more retailers and to connect with the Island community, check out Hobie’s Island Club website and Facebook group .

Other Things to Consider

Transportation & storage While most people transport their Tandem Island by trailer, many Island owners keep this boat as a cottage toy.

Launch spots Whether you prefer a boat ramp or a sandy shoreline launch from a beach, consider the accessories you may need (e.g. beach wheels) and if there's space to set up the boat.

Essential gear Because I paddle all year round, having a drysuit and wetsuits can significantly extend your kayatamaran sailing season. Paddling-specific lifejackets are also recommended as they’ll fit more comfortably while seated in the boat or won’t hinder movement.  

Optional upgrades There are different accessories and upgrades (e.g. spinnaker) you can add on to customize it for your kind of adventures!

Tandem Island FAQ

How fast can a hobie tandem island go.

The Hobie Tandem Island (TI) is capable of sailing speeds of up to 20 kilometres per hour or approximately 11 knots in favourable winds and conditions. Under pedal power, the TI is one of the fastest pedal kayaks on the water thanks to its dual Mirage Drives with turbo fins and narrow hull form for minimal drag.

Can one person use a Hobie Tandem Island?

Despite being a tandem 2-person kayak, the Hobie Tandem Island is well suited to single-person use thanks to its simple and easy-to-manage sailing systems.

With replicated controls for steering and lowering/retracting the rudder from both cockpits and the ability to control the furling and sheeting systems from either seat, you do not need 2 people to sail this craft.

The narrow low-drag hull profile is easily propelled by a single MirageDrive 180 pedal system thanks to its excellent efficiency and turbo fins as standard. Hobie’s intelligent design means set up of the AMA outriggers, mast and sailing systems can easily be achieved alone with minimal fuss or wasted time.

Can you fish from the Hobie Tandem Island?

The Tandem Island (TI) makes an excellent fishing platform for when you need to efficiently cover ground to get to the fishing area. This speed and efficiency make it perfect for trolling, particularly for offshore pelagic species.

The TI is super stable thanks to its 2 AMA outriggers which means you can stand and even walk on the trampolines if you’ve got them, with confidence.

Combine all this with an unbeatable carrying capacity and built-in features like the dual rod holders and fish-finder transducer mount and the TI is a highly capable hybrid fishing and sailing kayak. Check out this video of an incredible Black Marlin tagged off Jervis Bay from a TI

Can you car-top a Hobie Tandem Island?

Car-topping Hobie’s tandem island is a good option for those with a suitable vehicle who don’t want the added expense of a dedicated trailer.

Thanks to Hobie’s intelligent design, the AMA outriggers can be conveniently folded into the hull providing a maximum width of just 1.22 m. Alternatively, the AMAs and the AKA arms can be completely removed with zero tools to reduce the hull weight to just 59 kg.

Loading aids such as the T-Loader from Rhino can take almost all of the effort out of loading and unloading the craft from your roof racks, perfect for solo users or anyone looking to simplify the process.

Is the Tandem Island easy to sail?

Hobie designed their Tandem Island to be incredibly easy to sail making it a perfect craft for even the most novice sailors.

The simplicity of the controls which include single-line roller furling to quickly and conveniently roll the sail away or adjust the amount of sail out, provides total control at all times.

The inherent stability of the trimaran design makes the boat very user-friendly even as the wind builds. The dual MirageDrive 180s with turbo fins means you’ve always got reliable propulsion which makes picking up sailing and navigating in the tighter areas so much easier.
