Catamarans

If dinghies are a little on the small side for you, why not try a multihull? Their lightweight hulls allow them to zip across the water. Multihull sailboats are called "catamarans" when they have two hulls and "trimarans" if they have three hull.

They come in a variety of sizes, ranging from the popular 14-feet and can surpass 100 feet. From "beach cats" that can be launched from any sandy beach, to high-speed ocean racers of 70-ft. or more.

Hobie

In 1967, Hobie Alter designed the Hobie 14 Catamaran and revolutionized the sailing world. Hobie wanted to make a boat that you could easily launch into the surf from the beach, sail, and bring back through the surf. It was this 14-foot fibreglass single-handed catamaran that single-handedly changed the course of sailing. In 1969 Hobie released, or rather, unleashed the Hobie 16, the most popular catamaran ever and the most competitive catamaran class in the world. Owning a Hobie Cat means more than owning a sailboat. Over 100,000 Hobie Cats are sailing around the world in huge Hobie fleets and regattas.




Hobie

Through the social and racing activities of Hobie fleets, members have an opportunity to participate in activities designed to enhance the quality of their recreational time, and to contribute to a spirit of friendship that has graced the sport of Hobie Cat sailing since 1967. Sailors everywhere have come to call this unique affinity "The Hobie Way of Life".
